New York Yankee fans will be happy to learn on Thursday about the hottest deal on the web through a LivingSocial deal: An opportunity to meet Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera at an upcoming game. But in order to meet your favorite Yankee, it will cost you. $2,000-$2,500 to be exact.
Daily Deals company LivingSocial posted a new offer on Thursday to meet Yankee legends Jeter and Rivera in 30 minute meet-and-greets.
Pay $2,500 for a once-in-a-lifetime, 30-minute VIP meet and greet with Derek Jeter on June 28, including a 100-level game ticket; you and nine other fans will take pics with and score autographs from one of the most beloved Big Apple ballplayers before the game,' the LivingSocial deal reads. Or, pay $2,000 for a just as intimate, 30-minute VIP meet-and-greet with Mariano Rivera -- one of the best closers the game has seen -- on May 2 or June 20, plus 100-level ticket to that day's game.
Customers located in the New York City area were first notified via e-mail about the deal around 2 p.m. EST, which also includes a signed 8X10 framed photo from both Jeter and Rivera in addition to a $10 Steiner Sports gift card for either $265 with the Rivera meet or $290 with Jeter.
According to ClickZ, each offer includes a 100-level seat game ticket. However, there are only 10 spots available to meet Jeter and 20 for Rivera, which will undoubtedly sell out fast, as this is truly a deal of a lifetime for Yankees fans.
Just like small businesses are using [LivingSocial] to help with marketing, sports franchises are also using [LivingSocial] to help their marketing efforts, LivingSocial rep Maire Griffin told ClickZ.
The deal is through both Steiner Sports and the Yankees for the opportunity to meet Derek Jeter or Mariano Rivera at Yankee stadium, located at East 161st Street & River Avenue in New York.
