Groupon’s new ‘G-Pass’ lets you bypass lines for GrouponLive events

Almost a year ago, daily deals site Groupon launched an online ticketing deals marketplace in partnership with Live Nation / Ticketmaster. Dubbed GrouponLive, the joint-venture between the two companies lets users get deals on local entertainment events, ranging from sports events, musicals to plays and concerts.

This morning, Groupon announced a new feature called G-Pass, which basically allows GrouponLive customers to bypass the box office line and head straight for the entrance for those events.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

Before, people would have to take their vouchers to the counter to exchange them for actual event tickets, but with G-Pass, the ticketing, seating and barcode-scanning information will be placed right on the voucher itself.

No more lines! Well, fewer lines at least.

Groupon in a statement said G-Pass will be rolling out to all Ticketmaster venues offering GrouponLive deals throughout the U.S. and Canada.
