Courtney Merriman, from Beloit, Wisconsin, never thought in her wildest dreams that she’d be flying with her best friend, Jenna, to see Taylor Swift at the Eras Tour in South Beach, Florida.

Remember when Swifties crashed the Ticketmaster website and fans were scrambling to find tickets anywhere on the internet?  Resale tickets ranged from $600 to nearly $20,000 for nose bleed seats!
