Gold Star Events (goldstar.com)
This article originally ran on 8/26/14. Just between you guys and Jeff Eats, before you buy tickets to concerts/shows/festivals/comedy clubs/food events-a wise move would be to check sites like goldstar.com, groupon.com, eventbrite.com and livingsocial.com…no bs-here, there are tons of discounts/deals out there- you just gotta be smart enough to go and get them!

* Gold Star Events (goldstar.com).
I don’t know about you guys, but every day Jeff Eats gets bombarded with all kinds of “internet” discount-deals…restaurants, manicures, movie tickets, cosmetics, facials, hotels, foot massages, acne treatments, nose hair clippers, parachute jumping lessons, toenail fungus removal treatment…there is literally a “deal” for everything and anything out there in Internet Land. Now don’t get me wrong, Jeff Eats likes to save money- but I gotta tell you, most of the deals “presented” are of absolutely no interest to me whatsoever…
Anyway, to make a long story short…
About a month ago, Jeff Eats started getting emails from a company named Goldstar Events, Inc. (goldstar.com)–which features “deals” on Florida-EVENTS that I (and I emphasize the word I) would actually buy and use…concert tickets, show tickets, theater tickets, comedy club tickets, food event tickets, sporting event tickets, tours, expos…at 50% off face-value!…and every so often- “comp” tickets.
Just so you know, I “used” Goldstar and got exactly what was advertised.
Let me wrap this up for you,
If you want to save some bucks (and who doesn’t!-other than my good friend Nick who for some unknown reason-thinks he is above all this “bargain” stuff) you gotta checkout this goldstar.com site-which services major cities all over the United States.
Printed below is Goldstar’s “description” from its website.
One last piece of business. The nose hair clipper that I got through livingsocial.com was a pretty decent buy!

On August 8 you mentioned that comic Eddie Brill was coming to the Mardi Gras Casino. Tickets were listed at $15.
I just used Gold Star and paid $7.50.
Just had a chance to read your comments.
Glad that you saved 50%. Not a bad deal!
If you check, Mardi Gras’ entire comedy club schedule is covered by Gold Star.
One other “deal” that caught Jeff Eats’ eagle eye is the PGA Pig Out 8/31/14 event (which I mentioned on August 7) is also covered by Gold Star.
Thanks for reading…
Went to Goldstar and they’ve got 10 DOLLAR Dolphins (preseason) tix and FREE GA tix for Nestor Torres at Jazziz! Great stuff!
Just bought 2,tickets for Judy Tenuta for 15 bucks.
Had never heard of goldstar.com until I read this story.
I have used groupon.com and livingsocial.com.
From looking at goldstar.com it leans heavily to tickets and events. Little to none on restaurants and hard goods.
I have been using goldstar.com since you first mentioned it.
Over the past year I have gotten great tickets and saved a small fortune using goldstar.com.
I have also used groupon.com and livingsocial.com but I think on the whole goldstar.com is the best site for deals on tickets.
One of your best tips was recommending this sight.
Over the past year I have purchased a number of tickets at substantial discounts.
This a great site. Terrific selection of tickets and events.
I’m surprised you were unaware of the Goldstar site until now. I had been using it in the metropolitan NY area for several years and am so happy it is in Florida as well. I believe it might also be in some other states.
I use Gold Star all the time. It really has a huge selection of shows/concerts and you can’t beat the discounts it gives. Groupon and Livingsocial are also good, but they don’t have as a big of a selection as Gold Star does.
Jeff, Gold Star is a great source of discount tickets.
I also look at groupon.com and livingsocial and others, but have found Gold Star to have more event selection.
Your readers should followup on your suggestion because they will definitely save money.
You are so right on this one.
I have been using Gold Star since I first read about it here and have gotten some great tickets at huge discounts.
As a matter of fact last week I got $40 tickets for $10 for Good Vibrations coming to Delray Beach next month.
People should use Gold Star it’s terrific.
Do you have to pay a membership fee to use the service?
Used goldstar.com for the first time yesterday. Bought 6 tickets to see Southside Johnny last night at Coral Springs Performing Arts. Worked like a charm. Got $46 tickets for $23+ handling fee and taxes bringing. price to $29. Row K in the center. Great deal.
Goldstar is a great site. I check it all the time before I buy tickets.
Ive been buying on goldstar.com since you mentioned it in 2014.
There are always a. ton of shows and events listed with great discount tickets listed.
I have used Gold Star numerous times. Usually end up saving about 50% on various tickets. Of importance Gold Star has never given me a bad seat at any event.
