2 US Open Ticket Tips: why it's better to buy tickets as a pair

Always consider buying Two tickets instead of just One.
Even if you don't need both, yet...Why?
Go watch the US Open with a Friend
One of the ball kid's proud mom got an extra ticket from Tennis-Bargains last year to watch her son!

Invite a tennis friend!
Tennis is always more fun when you bring your buddy :)
We are giving away US Open tickets in pairs. Enter for a chance to win.

One Pair is almost always better than 2 Single Tickets...
  • It is much easier to resell when needed.
  • For some reason, if you cannot attend and need to get rid of the tickets.
  • In most cases, selling (or trading) a pair of tickets is MUCH easier than selling a single*
Greater Value when re-selling a pair of unused tickets
  • The biggest marketplace for US Open tickets will get the quickest buyer and best price. Otherwise, you must hope you get lucky on Craigslist or eBay with legitimate tickets.
  • Market research has shown that the sales price of 2 seats sold TOGETHER is usually higher than selling 2 single tickets apart, even in the same row.

Problems with One Single Seat (Gap Seats or Splits)

  • Think about going to a movie theater.  If you see a "one-seat gap" between two couples, it is a bit awkward and often that seat will stay empty.
  • Also the US Open and the movie cinema both want to minimize "wasted" empty seats.

    Strategy for selling your Extra Seat if you end up with one extra single
  • Sell it online at TicketExchange.
  • This is a very easy and safe way to recoup your cost.
  • There are other places you can post, but often the most hassle-free way is to just input your Ticketmaster barcode.
They guarantee the transaction and deposit your money straight to a bank account. Much easier than standing outside an hour before a game to try to unload a ticket!

Buyer's Tips with BOGO (Buy One, Get One Ticket Deals)
  • When you purchase 2-for-1 tickets, you are already getting 50% off the box office price.
  • For the same standard price, you get 2 tickets instead of 1. So think of it as a way to lower your final price of your own seat.
  • When listing your discounted seat, you're essentially sharing the savings. It allows the next person to purchase the resold seat below retail price. Share the savings*
