Super Bowl 2014: 5 'Deals' You May Want to Pass On

Super Bowl 2014: 5 'Deals' You May Want to Pass On MetLife Stadium will be packed in a few weeks. Are you going? / Credit: MetLifeStadium.com

Now that the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks are heading to Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, are you planning your trip, too?

If so, we have you covered with some of the best, ahem, "deals" in the area. You may want to start saving now.

If you are going to the big game, you are going to need a nice place to stay for the big weekend. Luckily, there are plenty of options to choose from. Here are a few of them.

A lovely 2.2 star hotel in Secaucus, N.J. -- next door to MetLife Stadium -- will cost just $1,641 for three nights. That is up from a normal weekend stay of $278 at the same hotel.

If you are looking to stay in Manhattan in a little more luxury, a weekend stay at a luxury New York hotel will set you back $4,000.

If you would rather avoid booking a hotel for Super Bowl weekend, you can always  rent an apartment, condo or home in the area. Just be prepared to open your wallet.

A four-bedroom apartment in Manhattan's SoHo district will set you back $16,122 for the weekend.

Something a little closer to the game, a home in Rutherford, N.J. that sleeps 8, is going for a more reasonable $6,000 for the weekend.

 

Getting tickets to the Super Bowl will be a little harder than finding a hotel room as options are much more limited. StubHub currently has close to 6,000 game tickets for sale, the cheapest of which are going for a little more than $2,500 each.

For those looking for something more luxurious and warmer — it is the first-ever cold weather Super Bowl, after all — one ticket to the Commissioners Club Suite is going for just $962,512.

You have a few options when it comes to getting to the game on Super Sunday. If you are hoping to bring your car, good luck. There will be 13,000 parking spots at the stadium on game day. That is down from the normal 28,500 spots, which means that a good number of people will be relying on public transportation to get to the game. Permits will cost $150, but on the resale market they are going for close to double that.

Think you’ll save a bit by parking at a friend's house?  One parking spot a town over from the stadium is charging $189 a spot.

You aren't going to go to the Super Bowl without heading to a party or two, are you? The best thing is, there are plenty of options for you to choose from.  You can choose from the DirecTV Beach Party featuring Jay-Z, where tickets are going for $1,300 to $1,500 a person on StubHub, to the Leather and Laces party, where tickets go for between $950 and $16,500 a person.

If those two parties aren't your cup of tea, you can always check out the Super Bowl Maxim party, with tickets costing between $895 and $44,300 for a VIP table. The NFL Tailgate Party will cost a meager $2,200 to $3,200 in comparison.
