    I text message my friend:

    I got center court row 9 tickets! Doesn't get better than this/that.

    Are both okay? What would a native use?

    I would use "Doesn't get better than that!" in all contexts that I can think of.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    If the person is waving the tickets in the listener's face at the time of speaking, this would be fine. Most of the time, I would use that.

    In the present, I would use "this" also.
