Clear Channel Entertainment and Best Buy, the nation's leading retailer of technology and entertainment products and services, have entered into an innovative agreement that brings the popular getAccess membership loyalty program to customers through Best Buy's stores.
Best Buy shoppers can now instantly purchase and receive getAccess member packets, which include vouchers for free concert tickets, concession discounts, free lawn chair rentals and VIP club passes. The vouchers are valid for redemption at participating Clear Channel Entertainment music venues across the country.
"The Best Buy-Clear Channel Entertainment relationship is about making live entertainment even more accessible to fans, and having getAccess memberships available in Best Buy stores makes that possible," said Brian Becker, CEO and president, Clear Channel Entertainment. "Music fans now have instant access to great concert savings via one of the leading retailers of entertainment products."
getAccess memberships are priced at $60 per person, and when consumers join getAccess, they immediately receive benefits worth more than $150. Current offerings include four free ticket vouchers, four concession discount coupons, two VIP club entry passes (each admits two) and four free lawn chair rentals. Once on board, consumers receive hundreds of dollars in additional savings online at www.getaccess.cc.com . Using the membership number provided in the packet, members can activate the online portion of their getAccess membership to receive Cool Perks for one full year from the date of their activation. Online benefits include:
— VIP ticket offers including discounted tickets, pre-sale
opportunities, tickets to select sold-out shows, free bonus tickets
and seat upgrade opportunities;
— Access to reserved seating for general admission shows;
— VIP parking and club passes at select events; and

"We are always looking for exciting ways to help our customers connect with music," said Rick Soskin, vice president of business development for Best Buy. "The getAccess product is an incredible value that will bring music fans closer to their favorite artist. We're excited to be able to carry it at our stores."
"One of the greatest benefits of the getAccess packet is that it enables a family of four to enjoy a night out with all the perks that come with a concert at an affordable price," said Mike Stacy, senior vice president consumer marketing, Clear Channel Entertainment.
getAccess' year-round benefits are not limited to Clear Channel's entertainment offerings. The program is designed to be broad-based and includes savings and unique opportunities for theatrical productions, family shows, comedy events, museum exhibitions, movie tickets and rentals, sports events, theme parks and ski lift tickets.
