Another pricing discrepancy at Gilt, this time uncovered by the folks over on The Vie Society—lucky Gilt member are offered the discount prices of $195 for a "$295 ticket" to a Halloween party at Lincoln Center and $390 for a "$440" package which includes a ticket and membership. But the real ticket and package face values are lower than Gilt purports: ticket prices on Lincoln Center's website are only $255—and the listed ticket plus membership price is only $400, making Gilt's discount a whopping $10.
