If you want to attend the U.S. Open Tennis Championships this year in Flushing, New York, and you have an American Express card, you can get first dibs on tickets thanks to an Early Access sale going on this week. You’ll be able to purchase tickets ahead of the general public, allowing you to get tickets for the games you want to see and your preferred seats.
Now through June 3, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. ET, if you hold an American Express card, you take part in the Amex Early Access sale on the Amex U.S. Open website. The general public can purchase tickets as of June 5, but you’ll have a several-day advantage over those customers, allowing you to get the seats you desire on the days you desire for the games you desire.
Tickets aren’t discounted, so there’s no financial advantage to purchasing tickets during the presale, but you do get early access before the masses can swoop in and buy tickets. The U.S. Open is a coveted sporting event to attend, and it’s not uncommon for games to completely sell out, especially for seats in the large Arthur Ashe stadium. By purchasing before June 3, you’ll be able to guarantee yourself a seat.
There are some things you need to know, however:
- If you’re heading to the U.S. Open as a group, your presale privileges only allow you 8 tickets per day for the day session and 8 tickets per day for the evening session.
- You’re also allowed 8 grounds passes, which allow you access to the side courts, but not the main stadiums.
- If you’re trying to purchase a ticket for a prime game, such as the finals, you’ll, unfortunately, be limited to 1 ticket per cardholder.
If you want to attend a session that’s in higher demand and need more than 1 ticket, consider partnering up with another Amex cardholder who has access to the presale as well.
In addition to court seats, you can also purchase access to a luxury box or suite, though these come at a much higher expense. These premium seating locations tend to sell out really quickly due to their popularity, so if you want one of these seats, it is best to purchase as soon as you can.
Make sure you get your tickets prior to June 3 if you’re an Amex cardholder that wants to attend the U.S. Open. The tennis championship is always a big hit, and you can expect lots of onsite American Express offerings such as a free bag check, access to a Centurion Suite, and free radios so you can listen in on the action.
