After my vacation three years ago to New York City to watch tennis at the U.S. Open, I wrote a series of blog posts on how to save $1,011.64 on vacation. (To see those posts, click on the links below. The tips aren’t limited to attending a tennis match in New York City.)
The tickets to get in to three days of tennis matches were among my biggest expenses on that trip since I can always find ways to save on the cost of transportation, meals and lodging. I didn’t find a way to get the tickets for less, however.
But I did today receive an e-mail about a sweepstakes giving two free tickets to the U.S. Open’s first day session.
The Emirates Airline U.S. Open Series sweepstakes runs through Aug. 4 and you can only enter once. You have to agree to receive a newsletter from the sponsor and e-mails from PlayTennis.com but you can unsubscribe later. The grand prize is two tickets worth $198 total. Based on ticket prices when I went, I’m guessing the winning seats aren’t courtside but could still be pretty decent.
Another 100 winners will get an EAUSOS-branded product like a luggage tag, coaster, notebook or tumbler worth $8, according to the official rules.
