Stubhub has done a great job setting up physical offices at convenient locations near large venues and arenas known as Stubhub Last Minute Services (LMS). Last minute centers allow ticket shoppers to pick up tickets the day of the event and even a couple hours past the start of the game, concert or show.
StubHub LMS Fees:
There is a heavy fee associated with the LMS (Last Minute Services), ranging from $14.99 to $25.
However, the fee is somewhat understandable for several reasons.
1. Sellers have to ship their tickets to LMS offices or physically drop them off.
2. There is large administrative, operational and real estate costs to operate the StubHub LMS offices.
Plus, in there defense they are providing consumers with a unique and valuable service which is a great alternative to scalping tickets last minute.
Here’s the good news!
You can get a discount on LMS tickets by simply buying the exact same tickets on TickPick.
You ask how is this possible? Well first, TickPick only charges sellers a fee, and has no buyers fees (so you can immediately save 5% to 10% on the ticket price).
And here’s the kicker, more than 70% of the sellers on Stubhub also list their tickets for sale on TickPick. These sellers fortunately have the right to sell their tickets to anyone they want.
So once the seller drops their tickets off at their designated LMS location, the seller still has the right to personally go pick up the tickets or provide Stubhub with a name of a new person (aka the TickPick buyer) to pick up the their tickets.
So when you buy physical / hard tickets, last minute (verses buying etickets) you avoid the $15 LMS fee and you also have the opportunity to save 5% to 10% off the ticket price when you use TickPick aka the best ticket site!

Metlife Stadium and Izod Center
The Stub hub LMS pick-up for Metlife Stadium and Izod Center is a temporary center, however it is typically at the Sheraton Meadowlands Hotel & Conference Center, which is at Meadowlands Plaza, East Rutherford, NJ. Without a car, I would not advise using the LMS center; according to google, this can take up to 30 minutes to walk.
The Stubhub LMS location for Yankees tickets was just changed for the 2013 season. It used to be at 68 E. 161st Street, however, due to a law suite StubHub has opened a new LMS location to pick up Yankees tickets, which is now at the former Payless Shoe store in the Bronx Terminal Market. Get directions and details here at Google Maps.
Other Local Pick Up Locations:
Do note, that while Stubhub only has one location for local pickup (per a venue), TickPick may have multiple locations.
If the tickets are listed on Stubhub for local pick-up as well as TickPick, then the location will be at the Stubhub LMS office.
If tickets are just listed on TickPick as local pick up and are not on Stub hub, then the pick up location will be different than the LMS location, however it will be of equal convenience or equal distance to the venue.
Rule of thumb, if its in NYC or any other metro city like NYC, the local pick up location will be within a reasonable walking distance from the venue.
In New York, if the tickets aren’t available for pick up at Stubhub’s LMS, the 2nd most used location to pick up tickets is a restaurant called Tony Di Napoli (note this is also a good restaurant to grab some food and drink before your event).
If its a venue that one needs to drive to, then the pick up location will often require a drive as well, but no more than 5 to 10 minutes, and almost always on the way and at a convenient location.
Other alternative locations that tickets are often available at for local pickup (besides Stubhub LMS) is the closest fedex location to whichever venue or stadium that you are going to.
