In 2021, they are also offering four select sessions for the BOGO deal.
The first round of BOGO deals was July 12-15 for Amex card holders.

Very limited but probably a good price if you are definitely going on those dates. More sessions are likely going to be available *after* July 15th once the public sale starts.

Should you wait for more options? I explain how you could get a MUCH BETTER deal later.

It is better to let some people buy tickets at the full retail price first. Then you can get them much cheaper later if they find they cannot attend. Discounted tickets are coming out all summer since this is the first fan-based US Open and the event wants to test the waters.

With the rise of the new Delta-variant strains, the NYC mask and health protocols *may* change. Therefore there are no guarantees. If fans want to be more sure about the situation, it might be wise to wait until mid or late August to buy tickets based on prices on the resell market.

Another consideration is how the health of the players (Roger and Novak or even Serena and Naomi, for example) are star attractions. Whether they show up or make it through early rounds will affect prices greatly.


2021 US Open Tickets - access to them early and guaranteed

We have been monitoring ticket sales for over 15 years now and have always found the best value on US Open tickets after the General Public Sale begins on July 15 @ 9AM EST.

There are usually more choices, you will have a better idea of your travel plans to NYC by then, and the tennis events daily schedule will be available by then.

Lock in your seats before the public sale in July! Useful for getting great seats on popular days.

Can't make it to NYC? Try the Cincinnati Open (Aug 14 - 22)

Big action and stars in a smaller venue! It is also a Masters 1000 event and very family-friendly, which much cheaper cost for hotels and food.
