HOW THE SHOW-SCORE PATRON PROGRAM STACKS UP AGAINST NYC PAPERING SERVICES

Nov 20, 2018

The Show-Score Patron Program is a great deal, and quite different. 

Since launching 3 years ago, we have been committed to bringing you great ticket offers.  Through the Member Nights program alone, members have received more than 1,000 free ticket offers  -- more than any other service in NYC.  


Now, we’re introducing the Patron Program: the most audience-friendly service the Great White Way has ever seen.


Member Nights will remain open (for free!) to all members who have scored 6 or more shows, but the Patron Program takes it to the next level.   


Since some theater goers already use papering services, we thought we would explain the differences.


Here are a few features of our brand new Patron Program that you don’t get through any papering service:


  • Show-Score Patrons can cancel their tickets up to 2 days in advance. Because life happens. We get it. (With the other guys, you’re stuck with your tickets. No if’s, and’s, or but’s.)

  • Patrons get priority access to the latest Member Night offers, via text alerts sent straight to your phone. So you can snag those hot tickets before they’re all gone. (Because who has time to hit the refresh button on a papering website all day?)

  • Last minute schedule changes? Forget you had tickets reserved? It happens to the best of us. That’s why all Show-Score members enjoy a generous “strike” policy. (Papering services are one-strike-you’re-out.)

  • There’s no annual fee to join. For just $10.99 a month (less than the price of a drink after the show), you get so much more. If you’re looking for a cheaper option, we also have a $4.99/month plan.

  • Plus, Patrons get all sorts of other special perks that you won’t find when you join papering services. For example, Patrons can enjoy a free glass of bubbly at theater hotspot Bond 45 and receive two complimentary Experiences every year of their membership. (Get one glass at Bond 45 each month, and your subscription has paid for itself!).
