The Art of Ticket Re-Buying and Reselling: 7/25 Great US Open Tickets Still Available (even for sold-out weekend sessions)

US Open 2012 Tickets Sold Out Tickets Calendar
Don't Panic! I'll show you how to get tickets to "Sold Out" days

Ticket Exchange (by Tickets Now) is the key for safe exchanges. Recommended for fans who are still trying to get into sold-out sessions or even looking to shop for a better deal than the full retail price. Most importantly, these tickets are verified as genuine by Ticketmaster and reissued in your name - so someone cannot simply print out multiple copies and sell them.



TIP: For more options, check out this Ebay's Daily Listings of all tickets sold for less than $60 here. I made it an updated search, so feel free to bookmark it and check it in August for great deals.


Just don't wait too long as usually the independent sellers need a few days to mail those paper tickets to you. My advice: buy only from the sellers with good ratings and reviews!


Q: Need a different ticket? How do you "exchange" Tickets for different ones?

A: Officially, Ticketmaster will not let you refund nor exchange directly back to them.

However, if someone decides they cannot attend and wants tickets for a different date, the best way is try to resell them through Ticket Exchange and buy ones you can use with your credit. This is basically the best way you can "trade" tickets for the US Open. It is a very big marketplace.

1) After you create and login with your Ticketmaster account, go to "My US Open Account Manager" and it will show electronically what tickets you have available to be sold or transferred.


2) Select the seat that you want to sell and the price you want to sell it. After your tickets are sold, you will receive credit for most of the sale price that you set - which in turn you can use to buy other tickets that you can watch!

Setting your Ticket Price

My advice is not to set the sale price too high, if you want to get your money back fast. If you are one of the lowest prices, your tickets will get bought even faster. Do a little research on the "Buy Tickets" page to see how much they are going for, and try to beat that price by a few dollars.


Seller's Tip:
You can even set it so that if nobody buys your ticket at your price within a certain time, you can get an email notification so you can still go use them instead! Good when the weather is iffy. Also you can forward them to your friend's email (as a last minute tennis gift).




Tennis-Bargains Tip for Season Plans and Mini-Plans Holders


For those who want to see several consecutive sessions of tennis. In the past, what I have done is bought the full plan season tickets and after selling or gifting away half of my unused tickets, I had enough credit to buy a full 2nd year of season tickets! This is useful if you want to sell night tickets and just keep the day tickets, for example.

Tennis-Bargains Giveaways - Email Tickets to our Fans

TicketExchange is what I used to offer free tickets instantly to our Tennis-Bargains winners.
  • Miguel S. (Queens, NY) - last week 7/15
  • Piyush (Hoboken, NJ) - this week 7/22.
    In the example above, I just select the tickets I want to send, and just forward them to their email address. Both of them received Men's/Women's QF tickets. They just print them out and show them at the gate with their unique bar-codes and enjoy!
