The US Open begins August 29 in Flushing, New York. Chase customers can register here to reserve a free spot at Chase’s Lounge for access to air-conditioning and complimentary snacks and beverages during the world class tennis matches.

To be clear, you still have to purchase tickets to the US Open– this free reservation at the Chase Lounge is solely for entrance to the lounge. But with temperatures in New York climbing that time of year and pricey drinks, a lounge with air conditioning and refreshments would no doubt be appreciated. Just make sure you register ahead of time as spots are limited.

How to Get a Free Spot in the Chase Lounge

1. Register here by inputting the Chase customer service number in the New User Login boxes. That’s the only verification of being a chase customer that is needed.

2. You’ll be given 19 different time slots to choose from. You can reserve spots for up to four people total in any session that has availability. The four spots don’t all have to be reserved for the same time, you can spread them across different sessions (or even book a spot for yourself in four different sessions if you wish).

FYI, Mark Jackson commented on this One Mile At a Time Post that last year the Chase Lounge was only serving alcoholic beverages during the evening sessions.

3. You should receive a confirmation that looks like this once you pick your sessions. The first bullet point in the confirmation suggests printing or taking a screenshot to facilitate an easier check-in process when you arrive.

SPG Moments Packages for US Open Tickets

SPG Moments offer one-of-a-kind musical, sporting, or cultural experiences to Starwood Preferred Guest members.

While you should normally save your Starpoints for transferring to an airline partner, SPG occasionally offers incredible value through Moments by SPG. In December of 2014, Scott won two tickets to a Capital Cities concert in Buenos Aires that came with a chance to meet the band and a cocktail reception for only 6,000 SPG Starpoints through an SPG Moments auction.

SPG is offering Moments by SPG packages for the US Open as Starwood is a sponsor.

Most of the bidding for these packages start at above 50,000 Starpoints (which I value at 2.5 cents each, so more than $1,250). But if you’re a big tennis fan, one of these packages could be worth it to you. Before buying one of these packages, just make sure to compare the cash price of the ticket outright out with your valuation of the amount of Starpoints required to make sure you’re getting a deal.

A lof of the prime US Open tickets are already sold out, so in that case an SPG Moments package could be very appealing for you tennis fans that didn’t plan ahead.
