My husband is a tennis fanatic (he was a Division One player in college and still plays several times a week). We’ve attended the US Open countless times and made it to Roland Garros, the Australian Open, the Rotterdam Open, the Laver Cup, and other tournaments around the world. The US Open was the home tournament for us for many years living in the NYC/NJ area. American Express always offered cardholders perks, but these seem to be getting better each year.

American Express US Open

This year, American Express cardholders (attending the US Open) get some nice benefits from August 28th through September 6th onsite.

US Open Centurion Lounge

Centurion Lounge

Holders of The Platinum Card® from American Express and the Centurion Card are eligible to enter the Centurion Lounge. This is handled by making reservations through Resy. Seats are limited to two for Platinum® Cardholders and four for those with the Centurion Card. The Centurion Lounge offers:

  • Curated Dishes by Michael Solomonov and Cedric Vongerichten, Centurion Lounge and Global Dining Access by Resy Chef Partners
  • Curated cocktails and wine offerings
  • Travel-themed activities

Reservations opened on August 7th for people with Centurion Cards and on August 10th for those with The Platinum Card® from American Express. Most days/times seem sold out, but there is a waitlist at the lounge.

Amex Offers US Open

Amex Offer

American Express holders can get $10 back as a statement credit when they spend $100 or more at participating merchants at the US Open.

Card Member Lounge

Not to be confused with the Centurion Lounge above, the Card Member Lounge is open to all American Express cardmembers. It’s located on the 2nd level of the American Express US Open Fan Experience. The air-conditioned space features snacks and drinks and provides phone chargers. Each cardholder can bring two guests with them.

American Express Radios

American Express Radios

All cardmembers can show their card to receive a complimentary radio tuned to ESPN. This way they can listen to one match while watching another. Limit one per card. I’ve gotten several when I’ve been with guests by showing multiple American Express cards.

Free Souvenirs

American Express US Consumer cardmembers can claim a free digital collectible inside the Amex® Fan Experience.

Anthony’s Take: The US Open is a great time whether you’re an avid tennis fan or a casual watcher. American Express ups the experience with lounge access, discounts, and free swag.

Anthony’s Credit Card Pick: The Platinum Card® from American Express is my go-to for booking airfare from the airlines to earn 5x points (up to $500,000 per calendar year). The card has an annual fee of $695, but it provides many travel benefits and will always be my go-to for lounge access (both Delta Sky Clubs® and Centurion Lounges) and taking advantage of all that the Fine Hotels & Resorts program offers.
