American Express Preferred Seating Code

Subscribe to get our handy US Open codes needed to unlock these discounts. Scroll to the bottom and sign up *before the sale* for a headstart on 2019 tickets.

Access will be open to those who have any American Express credit card (plus the promo code we will send out). Be sure you have a valid credit card before you check out.

I would consider signing up for an American Express Bonvoy Card (as in Bon Voyage). It comes with a 55K point initial sign up bonus. Plus each year, this card gives you a lot of perks, free swag and discounts at the US Open - see below. The points are enough to earn you a free night at the Sheraton Laguardia hotel that is just one train stop away. One less expense for hotels. Plus you have until 5/31/19 to register your card to get up to an additional 100K points *targeted offer*.

NEW US Open changes for 2019:
This year, the US Open is completely getting rid of the week of USTA members pre-sales! This "sale" normally came one week prior to the Amex Sale and most smart fans avoided anyway. Prices were always the same for limited seat choices.

Many fans may jump on this sale, but below I explain how to get a MUCH BETTER deal later.

It is better to let some people buy tickets at the full retail price, and then for you to get them much cheaper later if they find they cannot attend. Discounted tickets come out all summer.

2019 US Open Tickets - access to them early, 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 June 3 @ 9AM EST.

There are 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.

Tip: Here is the best to check TicketExchange pricesLock in your seats before the public sale in June! Useful for getting great seats on popular days.

3 Reasons to avoid tickets at the US Open "Pre-sales" this year:

  1. Full Retail Pricing - the relatively same quality of tickets will generally be sold cheaper in a few months. The Amex Tickets section is just a batch like normal tickets.
  2. Promo Codes = Better Prices for Promenade Seats - the Tickets offered early at full price, but wait 1 week later (early June) because this is when the Buy One, Get One free deals will appear.
  3. All popular sessions become "Sold Out" in a few minutes - Men's Semi-Final Sat and Finals Sun are nearly impossible to get. You almost ALWAYS get the message that they are "unavailable" even within the few seconds of their pre-sale starting!

    Why waste your time at the "Members Presale" trying to sit at your PC at 9AM clicking refresh for nothing?? Their ticket packages are way over-priced!
    Be smart and get our tips to stay ahead of the pack when value tickets are released!
US Open 2019 Tickets from TicketExchange, sold by Fans to Fans are already available for purchase today

So why wait if you know they will get sold out later? The Labor Day weekend or Finals Weekend are always popular, so these dates you should consider buying first.

For the weekday sessions, if you want to save some of your hard-earned money for the same tickets, read on! We want to help our fans get their US Open tickets for the dates they want, at the best price possible. It pays to be patient this year and we will explain.
