Amex Curated Experiences for US Open Tennis Championships
American Express has announced new on-site and off-site experiences to welcome tennis fans back to the US Open Tennis Championships. The credit card issuer is unveiling a series of unique experiences for Card Members and tennis fans, including first ever pop-up tennis courts along the Hudson river and fan favorites on the tournament grounds, including complimentary bag check, the American Express Radio and access to a new outdoor Amex Patio, the Centurion Suite, along with the Card Member Lounge.
The Company is also offering a one-time statement credit for purchases made with enrolled, eligible Cards at participating merchants at the tournament and opening a second American Express Shop, a contactless shopping experience.
Tennis Courts at Pier 76 in New York City
American Express will bring the energy of the US Open outside of the tournament grounds with the opening of the first-ever American Express Courts at Pier 76 in New York City. Between August 23 and 31, Card Members and tennis fans will have the ability to book one of six new pop-up tennis courts alongside spectacular views of the Hudson River. Players can also enjoy food and drinks at the on-site open air lounge.
Five of the six courts will be available to pre-book for American Express Card Members via Go.Amex/Courts, with the sixth court available on a first-come-first-serve basis. A $5.00 court booking reservation fee is required and proceeds will be donated by Universe, the ticketing platform, to the USTA Foundations’ Excellence Team program, supporting youth tennis in underserved communities across the country.
The Centurion Suite
American Express is also bringing its signature Centurion Lounge to life at the US Open Centurion Suite through a 60-minute bookable dining experience. Platinum Card® Members will enjoy delicious bites from chefs Ignacio Mattos and Cédric Vongerichten, the executive chefs of the Centurion Lounges at John F. Kennedy International and LaGuardia Airports. Additionally, Card Members can sip on cocktails developed exclusively by Centurion Lounge Mixologist, Jim Meehan. Card Members can book their spot in the Centurion Suite through Resy.
Amex Patio & Lounge
American Express is returning to the US Open with a new lounge experience, the Amex Patio. Located near Court 17, the Amex Patio will be an open-air space for American Express Card Members to relax and recharge, enjoy misting fans and take in the shade in between tennis matches. This experience complements the newly located Card Member Lounge on the 2nd floor of Louis Armstrong Stadium.
This lounge will be open to all American Express Card Members and up to two guests, where they will be able to retreat from the hot summer sun with lounge seating and be able to purchase food and beverages, including the US Open signature beverage, the frozen Honey Deuce.
American Express Card Members will get a one-time statement credit of $20 when they spend $100 or more with their enrolled, eligible Card at participating merchants onsite.
