Brilliant idea on how to sell Cubs tickets on Craigslist

How do you quickly sell tickets on Craigslist? Offer a discount for something the buyer must do during the event. Put the discount in the title.

I had four cubs tickets I needed to unload for a game this week. There are so many Cubs tickets on Craigslist, I was afraid of not having my ad stand out. To help move the tickets, I offered a special DISCOUNT. Oh yeah. Who doesn’t love a good discount? To get $10 off, the buyer just needs to record a scorecard and take a photo of it for me. To get $20 off, they give me the actual scorecard.

I don’t think the guys who bought my tickets will keep a scorecard. They were on vacation and seemed like they were not huge baseball fans.

what other tickets do you have available. I would like to receive your $20 discount for filling out a scorecard. Do you have any night game tickets? Thank you. You have a beautiful website.
