Football season is here, and digital tickets look to be part of the game plan going forward.

We had the chance to catch up Executive Director and Counsel for National Association of Ticket Brokers (NATB), Gary Adler.

He gave some great recommendations for fans when it comes to digital tickets.

No matter what kind of ticket it is, you always need to do your homework and make sure you're buying from a reputable source. Remember to also use payment methods that come with protection, such as credit cards.

BBB Tip: False advertising, price gouging is unfair, illegal

Now that we're in the thick of hurricane season, we wanted to share some information with you on price gouging.

Price gouging is when a seller spikes the prices of goods, services or commodities to a level much higher than is considered reasonable or fair and is considered exploitative, potentially to an unethical extent.

Here is Alabama's price gouging law from Attorney General Steve Marshall: Alabama’s price gouging law is activated when a state of emergency is in effect. This law prohibits the “unconscionable pricing” of items for sale or rent. Although what constitutes an unconscionable price is not specifically set forth under state law, a price that is 25 percent or more above the average price charged in the same area within the last 30 days – and which was not due to legitimate increases in product supply costs - is a ‘prima facie’ case of unconscionable pricing.

For more information on price gouging and how to report it, visit this page: https://www.bbb.org/article/news-releases/18491-bbb-warning-price-gouging-is-illegal

Anyone who suspects price gouging during a declared state of emergency should report it to Better Business Bureau by filing a complaint, or to BBB Ad Truth.
