As Ellen wraps up another 12 Days of Giveaways, we, like most of her viewers, are wondering how we can score one of those coveted studio audience tickets.
Each December, The Ellen DeGeneres Show gives away thousands of dollars worth of gifts and prizes to the studio audience present during the 12 shows leading up to their holiday hiatus. This year’s giveaways included a 3-Day, 2-Night Stay at Terranea in Los Angeles, a SodaStream Play with a $300 Bed Bath & Beyond Gift Card, $1,000 from GAP, a Dyson Hot+Cool, a 2-Night Stay at The SLS Las Vegas, a $300 Bliss Spa Gift Card, 20,000 JetBlue TrueBlue Points, a Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro, Beats Solo2 Headphones, 2 Tickets to See ‘Britney: Piece of Me’ in Las Vegas, a $250 Toys “R” Us Gift Card, a 3-Day, 2-Night Stay at The Mirage in Las Vegas, a Season Pass to Universal Orlando Resort or Universal Studios Hollywood, 3 Years of Free Hulu, and much more.
Of course, free tickets to Ellen are available via her website. As soon as each month’s tickets are released, fans can choose the date they wish to attend and apply for tickets. There is no guarantee you will get tickets this way, and they are sure to go fast due to the high demand.
But, there are also lots of giveaways for tickets leading up to the 12 Days of Giveaways episodes. Sometimes audience members at earlier tapings are given tickets, others can win tickets at local events or from their local TV stations.
Ellen also hold contests on her website giving away tickets in the weeks leading up to the special shows. Entering to win tickets – either through Ellen’s website or a local contest – seems to be the best way to get into the show during the giveaway episodes.
Visit Ellentv.com frequently as these contests tend to run throughout the entire year, too.
