    Fans can get a jump on baseball playoff tickets this year, thanks to Vivid Seats. We call it WIN-surance.

    Because not all series go a full 7 games, throughout the entirety of the postseason, MLB ticket buyers are covered by the Vivid Seats 100% Buyer Guarantee that provides customers a full refund for any games that are canceled or go unplayed.

    There are already tickets available for every playoff team and every possible playoff game. And there are a number of reasons why you should lock in your tickets today.

    Advantages to buying MLB Playoff tickets early:

    1. Anticipation: Imagine the bragging rights when you can tell your friends in September that you already hold tickets for Game 1 of the World Series if your favorite team advances. Every game gets more exciting as you wait to see the pitching match-up you'll get to witness live.
    2. Selection: The longer you wait to buy tickets, the less there are available. To get the best seats in the house, be sure to act early as there's no guarantee they'll be around later.
    3. Savings: Vivid Seats operates a live secondary market, and sellers can move ticket prices up or down at any time and based on any number of factors. However, remember that most fans want to wait until the teams for the next round of the playoffs are decided before purchasing their tickets. And if the other team has a big All Star slugger or CY Young candidate ace, demand for tickets can really jump. This influx of interest at the time a team clinches historically causes big changes in ticket prices.
    4. WIN-surance: If a series ends early or your team fails to advance, Vivid Seats customers receive 100% of what they spent including all fees and shipping back in their pockets (minus shipping costs if the tickets ship). If you purchase now and the game is not played, you won't be left hanging.

    A handful of regular-season games still remain, and there are going to be some dogfights for the Wild Card matchups, but many baseball fans around the country are already plotting out plans for the postseason. Get in on the action and secure your playoff tickets early.

    We like to call it WIN-surance, but you can just call it planning ahead.
