Purchasing event tickets from stubhub or tickesnow?

Has anyone out there ever purchased event tickets from stubhub or ticketsnow? Ticketsnow says they are a third party site from ticketmaster and the tickets are verified. Ticketmaster does not have good seat options for the event we are wanting to attend. When I looked up these third party sites they seemed to have better seats but I'm worried about getting scammed.

I don't know anything about Ticketsnow but StubHub is very reputable. We have bought and sold literally dozens (probably more than a hundred) times with them with no issues. They are expensive but they are the real deal.

Used StubHub for tickets about a half dozen times.... zero problems. I've had them mailed to me as well as used a local pick-up location.

I'm going to a football game on Saturday using a ticket purchased through StubHub.

Thanks for the info! We are wanting to take my parents to an OKC Thunder game when they visit in November. We've never had to pay for tickets to the games as DH's company does a lottery and we get them for free. They are always excellent seats too, once we were 4 rows back from the court and another time in club level. I never realized how expensive those seats are until I started looking. We wanted to go ahead and buy tickets because there is no guarantee DH's name will get drawn in the lottery for the game we want.

We have used Stubhub many times. It's very easy and reliable. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again or recommend to others.
