    get you

    'I can get you guys tickets to football games in February'.

    Does “I can get you” mean I can give you?

    Well, "give" can imply for free. "Get" does not necessarily mean that.

    Re: get you

    When someone says "I can get you" something, it means that they can obtain it for you. It doesn't mean that it will be for free, though! "I can get you tickets" means that the speaker has a source from which he can buy tickets, and then he will be happy to re-sell them to you.
