Are ticket prices too high? Should you sell and "trade" for a cheaper stadium? (Updated 07/2024)

  • July trends: Grounds passes have been selling out fast, and Ashe prices are going down only slightly
  • Stick with Ashe, if you want rain protection with the roof
  • If Armstrong or Grandstand are only slightly more expensive, buy those instead
  • Grounds Passes should be cheaper than Ashe! Eg, Tues, Sept 3 (<$100)
The later the purchase, the better the information - but risking higher prices!

If you're not picky, pick the cheapest ticket. Then just wander around the outer 17 courts from match to match!

1) Arthur Ashe Stadium (Good price = $200 for Day Sessions)

Upper vs Lower Promenade (Row letters matter!)
If you get a seat in the front with A-C row letters, those are worth at least $50 to $100 more.

Middle Rows (M-P)
The middle rows (letters near M-P) might be worth paying $20-$50 more than the cheapest.

The back rows (letters like V, W, X, Y, Z, or ZZ) often have empty seats as those people generally roam outside, take selfies of the NYC skyline, or lounge around at free perk booths.

Why are Ashe tickets the *safest* tickets in general?
Short Answer: They are the most flexible option. You get Full Access to all the courts.

Unless there is a specific player and match you want to attend, then the Arthur Ashe tickets are the safest all-around bet when buying well in advance.

US Open Tickets with prices updated daily

Ashe is typically slightly more expensive than Grounds Passes. Yet it grants you a reserved seat (very useful if it rains) and allows you into every stadium. Any Grounds Pass should cost less.

The strategy is to roam anywhere, knowing you have reserved your seat in Ashe when you want to see your favorite star player play.

The top-seeded fan-favorite players will almost always play there exclusively and often at night.

Free US Open Tips and promo codes for new fans

The trick is if you decide to get the cheapest Arthur Ashe tickets up in the upper promenade, you DON'T have to stay all day in the nosebleeds section!  Instead, I recommend getting up and checking out the US Open campus outside!

US Open: How to save on US Open Tickets, Meals, Souvenirs (Part 2 of 3)

How to avoid overpriced items at the US Open

I know that each time I come back to the US Open, it seems like EVERYTHING is more expensive*

A: How to Save on Tennis Tickets, Meals, Souvenirs

As full disclosure for my personal opinion and review, I do not get paid a DIME by USTA nor the US Open to write my reviews. Big sporting events like to price-gouge unsuspecting tourists, so read this first before spending money at the US Open.

Read US Open Preview: new stadium layout and Ashe roof. Our first-hand accounts of the US Open and new things to check out (Part 1 of 3)

I am just like you, an annual ticket member and paying patron fan that buys US Open and US Open Shop products every year. We literally pay their USTA and US Open salary but sometimes we the fans get treated like unwelcome guests?!

US Open Guest Services will rob you - yes, literally rob you
US Open will rob you blind if you let them...

"Robin Hood of Tennis" - Tennis-Bargains
Maybe it is because I take pride in helping you all save money on US Open tickets and get more value from them. It seems that USTA and particularly the Media Credential staff are particular prejudice toward anyone who may cut into their corporate bottom line.

Ticket Upsell if you buy at the box office
From personal experience, I was once a Mini-Plan holder. Now, every year they even try to charge me too much for US Open ticket plans every year if I ever want to renew - NO THANKS and please stop calling! Used car salesman tactics don't work with me.

The box office and ticket booth staff are offering the exact same deals as online. Nothing special there - I found out you cannot even get Loge seats the first year you buy a FULL Plan!

Instead on TicketExchange you can get those same qualities Loge seats instantly. Example: I just found one $150 Loge Ticket for Labor Day (Row B!) on 9/1/16. Let the other ticket subscribers make the mistake, not you. Learn from us.

Check prices FIRST at TicketExchange for last minute deals!

Sold by Fans to Fans.  Cut out the Box Office...
the ticket counter and sales reps there are not your friends when they try to sell you the worst seats at the highest prices. Don't let them get away with it!

Compared to them who offer no useful tips/info about where to sit, and they get paid a salary to rip fans off?? No thanks.

How to Save Money on Food and Beverages at US Open

Ummm - don't buy inside unless desperate or need to lighten your wallet?

Drink Prices: $3.50 for water to $12 beer.
Tip: You're allowed to bring factory-sealed beverages in (or just an empty plastic clear water bottle to refill at one of the many fountains near the restrooms).

Food and Beverages are wayyyy over-priced - eat outside instead!

Restaurant chains galore

$17+ Crepes this year! Wow, and it's Not even a full meal.
I saw Many ball kids are getting pizza from Neapolitan. So maybe that's an ok try?

Typical US Open Food and Prices! I got an over-priced and under-cooked chicken*
Tip: Save $5.50, Bring in a sealed plastic bottle (Water or Gatorade)

Instead, I recommend going just outside the East Gates.
$9 for a whole meal! Great Eats! Much cheaper*

US Open Souvenirs - Buy online right AFTER the US Open.  50%+ Off*

I know, I's tempting, right? I need to buy something for my friend/family member back home. Hint: don't buy the junk and the hype. Unless it's really quality stuff, you can get it much cheaper online. Plus you have to lug it around everywhere.

Better yet, just wait a little bit after the US Open is over and they sell the clothes/hats/etc at pennies to the dollar...50%+ off every year.

If you have to shop, and rather not carry all of it around. Get it at with promo code USTAM344 to save $15 off $50.

Yeah it used to be a straight $15 OFF but USTA is greedy like that after I started ordering towels for $5 net :-P Probably if I didn't share the code as a referral, I could have kept using it.

Oh well, better to give than to receive :)
