Vendors appeared on Craigslist soon after the Eagles' 23-11 victory yesterday over the New York Giants, offering tickets in the $600 to $700 range. One North Phoenix-based seller put up seats at the club level for $750 each.
In the ad, the seller pitched a detailed description of such seats saying they were "the VIP way to go from start to finish."
"The tickets are section 242, Row 9. . . . They are on the Eagles sideline, 5 yd. line. They are the perfect view - low enough to see a holding call for yourself, but up just enough to see the whole field," wrote the vendor, who identified himself as "Tom."
Not all the ticket prices were sky high, with a pair of seats in Section 119, Row 6, going for $700.
Or for those who'd rather wait it out, eBay-style, the auction site had 253 sales with keywords "arizona" and "nfc." Sellers had their tickets up during the Eagles game, with one vendor starting the bid on two 50-yard-line seats for $2,499.
Airline flights round-trip from Philly to Phoenix varied as well. As of last night, Priceline.com fares between the two cities started at $450 and went up to $617. Round-trip flights were pricier on airline Web sites, starting around $800 on Southwest Airlines and $727 on US Airways.
Nonstop fares to the desert are expensive on all sites, fetching about $1,800, so if you're looking to cut corners, check out connecting itineraries.
The good news - hotels. No eyebrow-raising rates for accommodations near the stadium in Glendale. Expedia.com listed a few hotels in the $150- to $210-per-night range. *
