This is the second time I have benefited from Vet Tix. A friend of mine told me how easy they are and that I needed to check it out. The application process is fast and easy and they have some many options. Thank you Vet Tix for helping me take my family to the Nail Horan concert.

I have never went too a NFL PRO football or basketball game in my life. I suffer from PTSD among other service connective disabilities.
I have never had the chance to see a professional NFL or NBA game.
I wish before my health worsens I will be able too.
I love that VETIX gives these opportunities to us as veterans that have served or is serving our great Nation.

Thank you
VETIX

I'm a Veteran of Foreign Wars with P.T.S.D. and Veteran Tickets Foundation has implemented a new policy which requires veterans to upload photos of themselves at all events they attend with tickets from Veteran Tickets Foundation. If you can't upload the photos they will suspend your account and you can no longer receive tickets. I thought the purpose of Veteran Tickets Foundation was to help combat veterans reintegrate to civilian life with less stress , like not requiring veterans to upload photos to all events they attend. I'm not a I.T. computer nerd who lives on a computer 24-7 like others.

First, thank you for your service... and to clarify, you are only required to upload a thank you photo when a request was flagged for security and audit reasons. You are either required to agree to the picture thank you upload or not continue with the request. IF you agree to it we require that you follow the rules you agreed to. We also remind you to upload the photo. Also, your account is only temporally suspended... NOTE: less then 1% of requests are flagged.

I have enjoyed the various entertainment venues throughout the past couple years that I have received tickets.

I have a simple complaint:

There appears to be no way to contact this charity directly or get their attention, short of filing a letter with Arizona's Secretary of State for their specific contact information or going through the Federal Trade Commission. The telephone number they use goes to what they admit is an untended voicemail.

Since personal computer banking is used to complete purchase transactions through Vettix, this inability to speak with the merchant may be in violation of the federal Electronic Fund Transfer Act.

When I first started using VetTix I thought it had to be a scam. But, sure enough... I paid a small processing fee and got a legit ticket. VetTix and the donors have made it possible for me to get out of the house and be more social with friends, family, and fellow veterans attending the event. I can’t thank them enough for facilitating this type of program so me and my brothers/sisters in uniform can experience a great night out!

When I found VetTix, I did not initially believe that they could provide tickets to some of the events I've always wanted to attend. When I finally used their service, I was ECSTATIC!!

I am able to earn credit "coins" by spreading the word or take a picture of myself attending an event, and use those coins to enter lotteries for big name events (concerts, baseball games, etc.). I recently attended an event, selected 2 tickets, and paid a TOTAL of $3.97!!! WHAT?!?

Thank you VetTix, for what you do for my brothers and sisters in uniform!

VetTix has been great. It has really uplifted my spirit and provided me with a lot of fun leisure activities, as well as opened my eyes and gave me a chance to enjoy things I never thought would be fun. PBR is a donor and if it was not for VetTix, I probably would have never went to an event. Now I have been able to go most years and have become a fan as well as introduced those close to me. Usually I am with other veterans at events or current military members, and it is good to be back with part of the brotherhood/sisterhood again having a good time. Thank you VetTix and Donors for all the great experiences.

VetTix and it's donors have really shown me appreciation for my service. I have been able to attend many amazing and different types of events as well as meet fellow service members at a number of events. I really appreciate this gratitude and have given back to the foundation as well. I like how VetTix will show you at the end of the year to which Veterans your contribution went to and to what event the veteran attended.

I have been so fortunate to have received tickets from this charity. I like that they are diligent about informing recipients of donors conditions and that they rigorously enforce those conditions to ensure that the great support they offer us continues and grows. VetTix has made it possible for my family to attend very enjoyable events that we would have not been able to afford on our tight budget.

These folks are wonderful! I received 3 tickets to see U-2 in concert at Arrowhead Stadium in Sept. 2017. One of the best concerts I've ever been to!
They are doing great work for folks who deserve it; especially our combat wounded. THANK YOU!

Vet Tix is a fantastic organization that has helped me and many other vets and their families enjoy various events. This organization has helped many of us who wouldn't be able to attend these events enjoy quality time with our families. Because of their generosity we are able to share the quality of life we have now.

Vet Tix is a wonderful organization that has helped so many vets and their families enjoy various events. Without this organization, many of us wouldn't be able to have the quality of life we have now.

I have had the opportunity to attend events off the VET-TIX site. I have also spread the word on the events and have referred more than 10 Veterans of my community in the VET-TIX fold. During the event below we were able to reach out to Veterans in the community and passing out information on VET-TIX
