Stubby- A StubHub Bargain Hunter

Executive Summary

Two quick facts about me led to the creation of this project:
1)      I like to go out to events—sports, theatre, concerts—all those things.
2)      I am an unabashed cheapskate.

And so, I wanted to design a way for me to quickly pull a list of all of the upcoming events for a city, along with the lowest price tickets and whether they were getting cheaper or more expensive—sort of a Bing Travel Advisor for event tickets.  Stubby (as I lovingly call my VBA project) does exactly that—it scrapes all of the events for a particular locale off of StubHub’s website, reformats it into an easy-to-use layout, and informs the user of how much ticket prices have gone up or down since their last search.
