Top 5 Ways For Dallas Cowboys Fans To Save Money

How Dallas Cowboys fans can save money
Dallas Cowboys fans suffered the highest Fan Cost Index ($635) in 2015.

But the real cost index of $938, while $300 more, was only the 11th-highest that year.

Quite average (relatively speaking), you say?

Don’t be fooled.

The cost of Dallas Cowboys game tickets went from an initial average of $305* (5th highest) to $181 overall, a drop which was no doubt attributed more to a 4-12 record than a price trend.

Indeed, resale ticket prices have continued to rise - the initial average cost was $311* in 2016, and for the 2017 season, it’s $486*.


How can Dallas Cowboys fans save money?

1. The Party Pass.  Standing room only “party pass” tickets are just 29 bucks. In exchange for the comfort of a seat you get to roam & explore as you please and still watch the action on the field from various vantage points.

Although these do sell fast, there are up to 35,000 party pass tickets available for each Cowboys home game so your chances of getting them are fairly good.

2. Park… somewhere else.   How much is Dallas Cowboys parking? The face value cost is a ridiculous $75, and the average cheapest price on the secondary market for the upcoming 2017 season is $125. Screw that… here are a number of much cheaper Dallas Cowboys Stadium parking alternatives.

3. Eat, drink, & park… somewhere else.   It’ll cost you $27 at Dallas Cowboys Stadium for a beer, Kobe burger, and bottled water. For 25 bucks, you get a 10-oz. rib eye steak, beer, parking, & a shuttle ride at J.Gilligan’s. For $29 at Humperdink’s, you get parking, shuttle, & a much better Kobe burger. Hmm…

4. Take the self-guided tour.   With the self-guided tour of AT&T Stadium you won't get to see a private suite, the print media press box (yawn), the Ford Motor company fountain, and the Cotton Bowl office vestibule - these are included with the so-called VIP tour.

What you will get to see - at your own pace and for 10 bucks less - is the playing field, the Miller Lite Club, the post-game interview room, the Cowboys locker room, and the Cheerleaders locker room.

5. Take advantage of hotel discounts.   Oftentimes the easiest ways to save money are the most obvious. As an example, wouldn't you think that a hotel overlooking the Six Flags Amusement Park would be more expensive than one that is located nearly a mile further away?

Well if you wanted to visit Six Flags and take in the Sept 28 Cowboys-Saints game, you would save nearly $200** if you booked a one night (Sept 28-29) stay at the Ranger Inn & Suites instead of the Holiday Inn Express.
