New York, NY (November 26, 2014)– Goldstar, (www.goldstar.com), the company that gets more people out to live entertainment more often, believes that being with friends and family experiencing new events is especially important this time of year. Therefore, the company’s Cyber Monday and holiday promotions have been carefully designed to make it easier than ever to attend live entertainment during the social season.


“Our members tells us their favorite thing to do is to go see a live show with their friends and families. In fact 83%, say they wish they could go more often,” explains Goldstar, CEO, Jim McCarthy. “So, we reached into our bag of tricks and came up with a few ways to help them do just that.”


Special Offers For the Social Season:

It all begins with Cyber Monday – From December 1 will thru December 7, members will discover events with 60% off or better. They‘ll also find upgrade offers for premium seating. A few examples of the events offers on Goldstar include:  Beach Blanket Babylon with tickets starting at $10, Preseason Oakland Athletics vs World Champion San Francisco Giants with tickets starting at $8, Paul Taylor's American Modern Dance for Marc 2015 with tickets starting at $16.75.


Goldstar Gift Certificates Special – From December 19 right up to December 24, members can purchase discounted gift certificates for last minute shopping. For example, purchase a $25 for $19.95, a $50 for $39.95 and $100 for only $79.95.


A Few Festive Features:

Make This a Gift – an easy feature that allows members to select an event as a gift. The recipient has the flexibility to change their dates or even opt for a completely different performance.


Pair this with “Sit with Friends” – an exclusive to Goldstar feature that allows people to share a unique friends that allows people to also purchase to the same event and all be seated together.


The More Mobile the Merrier:

With more members using the Goldstar iOS app and the new Android app than desktop now, they’re discovery and purchasing new events wherever they go and whenever they want. Whether it’s picking out a gift for the boss at the mall or waiting for the holiday-themed coffee order – they’re just a click away from a social event of the season.


Starting the New Year Right:

“This is an opportunity for our venue partners too — to end their year on a high note with new audiences and increased revenue,” adds Jim.  “It’s also a chance for them to get a jump on 2015 with offers well into the New Year.”


Just about 50% of the offers are for events that actually happen in 2015. The goal is to help Goldstar’s 5000+ venue partners manage yield for upcoming events and overcome things like the “January slump” that some see after the holidays. The first live entertainment ticketing company to offer Cyber Monday deals, the company recognized early on there was a real value to offering up a live experience to online shoppers who were looking for traditional retail items.


“It’s been a win-win for members, for our venue partners and for Goldstar.”
