Getting tickets to the Jingle Ball tour each winter is no easy task, as each stop tends to sell out within minutes. But landing one of these coveted tickets just got a bit easier for Capital One cardholders. Consider it an early Christmas miracle.
According to an email from a Capital One spokesperson, any Capital One cardholder “is eligible to take advantage of the early ticket sales,” which will happen October 13 at 10 a.m. local market time for each of the 12 cities on the tour. This gives cardholders access to tickets three days earlier than when they go on sale to the general public. Cardholders can order up to eight tickets per transaction and must use their Capital One card to pay, according to the spokesperson.
Plus, one cardholder at each of the tour stops will win the opportunity to head up on stage and announce an artist at the performance. This is the second year Capital One has partnered with iHeart Radio to put on the Jingle Ball concert series.
If you’ve been hoping to catch an up-close glimpse of Charlie Puth or Fifth Harmony — two of the artists announced for the tour (full lineup is expected to be announced October 11) — this card benefit may give you your golden ticket. But, while exclusive entertainment access can be a great perk — and is offered by many different credit card issuers— it may not be in your best interest to buy concert tickets you can’t afford just because you can get them. It’s also not might not be in your best interest to apply for a new credit card just to score access.
Before you sign up for any new credit card, you should read the terms and conditions to be sure it’s right for you. It’s also good idea to review your credit, as having good credit can help you qualify for better terms and conditions.

If you review your credit profiles and discover things aren’t quite where you want them to be, there are things you can do. Consider fixing any errors you discover, paying down debt and limiting any credit inquiries until your scores rebound.
