My wife and I have been too many concerts and events, for free. We've done so due to VETTIX and it's generous benefactors. We have had a variety of seats at entertainment venues around the country. Every seat is perfect. I have recommended this organization to many veterans like myself, and some have taken the step to pick up a part of this organization. Ones who have can't thank VETTIX enough! As a veteran, if you are not a part of this organization, you need to be. They are fantastic!

Air Force Fire Fighter 1996-2001- I have never felt so appreciated for my service before joining Vettix. They and the donors have given me and my wife opportunities to attend concerts, theaters/musicals, sporting events, and museums multiple times throughout the years...something we would not be able to afford without them. If you know a vet please tell them about Vettix...they'll love it!

This organization is fantastic. You can get tickets to different kind of sporting events, concerts, and all types of functions. Wife and I have been to multiple events that I could not have been able to afford due to this organization. This a veterans only organization. They take care to verify your eligibility. I would definitely recommend this organization to any veteran.

I am so grateful to Vettix and the many, many people and organizations that support the program. The experiences I've enjoyed through Vettix has helped me reconnect with my family and closest friends, something that can be hard to do after the emotional dampening that helped me cope with deployment experiences.

I first heard about this from a co-worker this year as she knew I was also a veteran. I used this site once to secure tickets for the Jojo Siwa concert for myself and my kids. Many of the tickets are either free or discounted and is a great way to save money especially if you have a large family like mine. A big thank-you to the sponsors or private donors that make this happen. My only wish to make this a five star review would be if they had more family oriented events located close by

There are so many events to choose from that there is something for everyone! This is such a great organization that all veterans need to know about it and need to utilize their services. We are also so grateful to those who donate the tickets. It's difficult and expensive to get tickets to a lot of these events, so huge thanks to everyone!

Love VetTix, I've been able to take my family to many normally unreachable events thanks to this orgainization and we really do appreciate their efforts to boost the morale of the veterans and their supporting cast (aka family members)! It really goes a long way in keeping some of our sanity in check!

Thanks and I highly highly recommend this if you haven't taken advantage of this yet.

This has been a terrific organization for myself and others veterans that I know.
Thank you for doing what you do to serve those that have served, When I was honorably discharged from the military after serving in Vietnam, I did not feel that my sacrifices were valued or appreciated and the long term effects of war have been difficult to say the least. VetTix helps take the sting out of that from time to time. Thank you!

Veteran Ticket Foundation - VetTix, is on of the best Veteran programs going for Veterans and their families and friends. I have had the opportunity to attend many quality events here in the Phoenix Metro area. Things like Barrett Jackson, Spring Training Baseball events, Auto racing events at PIR, and attended many Arts and Entertainment events. Reduced ticket prices as well! If you are a Vet and have not signed up yet, you need to do this now!

Thank you Vet Tix for giving back to veterans. My wife Maria and I have gone to numerous concerts thanks to your organization, and we have loved them all. We are very grateful.

Won tickets to the Fiesta Bowl in Pheonix,Az on 12/28/19. I was notified on 12/12/19 that I had won the lottery for 2 tickets that included being involved in the flag holding ceremony during the pregame. I was given a web link to go pay for the transfer fee for the tickets. Each time I went to the link I received a message that the web page was under maintenance and to check back. I received this message until 9am on 12/16/19. At 5pm on 12/16/19 I checked and found I had lost my tickets because I had not paid the transfer fee of $14.95. The maintenance message is still on the VetTix web site for the Fiesta Bowl. I don't understand what happened or why I was not given the 24hr time frame I had read about. I would hesitate to try this again as I had made plans (after being told i had won the ticket lottery) with a close friend for this game, and had to cancel on him. Very disappointed in this organization

system errors, human errors, and timing errors.... and we are doing everything to make it right... the game time has not passed yet so there is time for you to be less disappointed... hopefully many out there reading this understand why this person is upset and why the 1 star review... and at the same time understand that this situation is an outlier and read all the other reviews to get a better sense of how amazing our donors are... and how amazing our staff is... and how amazingly appreciative those we serve our of us.

When I was introduced to Vet Tix / 1st Tix a year ago, my fist thought was that it was too good to be true and there must be a catch. Well, I was wrong for sure. This is a great organization and an awesome way to give back to first responders and military personnel. My family and I have attended several events over the past year thanks to Vet Tix, which I wouldn't have otherwise. My family and I have a deep appreciation for Vet Tix and their mission.

This organization is great at providing experiences for veterans! I've been a donor as well as a client. I just attended my first event and look forward to attending more in the future. I previously donated my NFL tickets to Vet Tix because I knew it was such a great charity and the tickets go to deserving veterans. As a donor, it's a wonderful opportunity to give back to those who have served.

This is SUCH an amazing organization. There are so many veterans out there who have sacrificed time and time again, asking nothing in return. This organization allows these vets to take time for themselves, their loved ones, and more.

Not many are able to afford the prices of tickets and events these days, budgeting as best as they can. Vet Tix offers such a wide range of tickets to all kinds of events. Thank you, Vet Tix, for allowing my husband to FINALLY see The Trans-Siberian Orchestra. He has been wanting to go for years but was deployed for the ones that were in our area when we could afford the tickets. He had a great time and it is a show he won't soon forget.

I've been in the Army on either active duty or as a reservist for over a decade and, thanks to VetTix, I've been able to not only attend sporting events like hockey, baseball, and basketball games, but also rock concerts like KISS and cultural performances like the New York Philharmonic at Lincoln Center and the Louisiana Philharmonic at Carnegie Hall. This organization makes it so easy for venues and performers to give back to veterans and we really appreciate the opportunities it gives us. Thanks VetTix!

I am so glad a friend referred me to Vet Tix. My son started college this semester and plays bass guitar for the front ensemble in the marching band. Thanks to Vet Tix and their partners, I have been able to get great seats and wonderful pricing to go to the football games and see him perform. I was also able to give back and donate some concert tickets. There are so many discounts and offers that really enhance active duty, retired and veterans. Thanks so much Vet Tix for making a difference and letting us also participate in helping our fellow military personnel.
