American Express cardholders have early access to US Open tickets this week only
In case you missed it, tickets for the U.S. Open Tennis Championships go on sale for the general public next week. It's the final Grand Slam tournament held annually in New York and the crown jewel of the American tennis scene. This year the tournament will take place from Aug. 28 to Sept. 10.
Another perk specific to Amex cardholders is happening this week, with early access to tickets ahead of the general public release June 5.
Through 11:59 p.m. EDT on June 3, Amex cardholders can purchase tickets online through Ticketmaster, the official ticketing partner of the U.S. Open. Amex customers can buy a maximum of eight tickets per day for both day and evening sessions, for 16 total session tickets per date. Additionally, customers may purchase up to eight ground admission passes per date, applicable during both early access and public sale. For early access tickets, Amex customers can only order one ticket per session for select high-demand sessions, as noted online.
Note that all sales are final, with no refunds or exchanges.
In addition to early access to tickets ahead of the general public, Amex confirmed it would offer similar perks to last year for tournamentgoers. Some perks include a complimentary bag check, access to the Centurion Suite that The Platinum Card® from American Express and Centurion cardholders can reserve ahead of time, and a lounge for other cardholders available on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you're considering getting a new Amex card, the American Express® Green Card is currently offering new cardmembers 60,000 Membership Rewards points after they spend $3,000 on purchases in the first six months of card membership. TPG’s current valuation of Membership Rewards points at 2 cents each makes this current welcome offer worth approximately $1,200.
Plus, you'll get 20% back on eligible travel and transit purchases in your first six months to earn up to $200 back, making the welcome offer worth up to $1,400.
