Others are offering to trade things such as "Hamilton" musical tickets for the tickets that were doled out for free. Hundreds of tickets were on sale online, most selling for at least $300.
Allison Ward's creativity paid off. She offered a 40-inch TV in exchange for a ticket, and got a buyer via Craigslist Monday afternoon. "I am having them send me photos of their tickets so I can check them out and their barcodes before we meet up in person, so I can be safe about it," she said.
