Why should I buy on Jets SeatExchange?
Only Jets SeatExchange can guarantee 100% legitimate tickets, because the seats sold through Jets SeatExchange were first sold using the Winnipeg Jets ticketing systems. If you buy a ticket that is resold through a source other than Jets SeatExchange, you have no way of knowing whether the ticket you purchased is counterfeit or has been invalidated. However with Jets SeatExchange, once you buy a ticket, we cancel the original barcode and assign you a new one, so you have the security of knowing for certain the ticket being delivered to you is valid. Don't be fooled by other website guarantees: there is a lot of fine print and exceptions in those guarantees. They do not have a way to fully validate the authenticity of the ticket. By using the Jets SeatExchange you are supporting the Winnipeg Jets Hockey Club and helping ensure that NHL hockey is prosperous in the City of Winnipeg.
How does it work?
Sellers log on securely to their Jets Account and select the seats they would like to sell back for re-sale on Jets SeatExchange.

Sellers are guaranteed payment for seats sold, without having to collect payment or deliver the tickets to the buyer. Buyers simply select the seat(s) they want based on price and location, without having to bid against other buyers, without having to coordinate delivery from anonymous sellers, and without the gamble that the seats are illegitimate. Upon purchase, tickets guaranteed authentic are delivered via email or left at MTS Centre will-call.
