What is American Express Entertainment?
Buy tickets first and get preferred seating by simply being a cardmember.
How do I use American Express Experiences?
All you need is an eligible American Express card and a Ticketmaster account. As of this writing, only the The Amex EveryDay® Credit Card and The Amex EveryDay® Preferred Credit Card don’t have this feature listed. Once you have the two, here’s how to use the program:
- Go to the ticketmaster.com/americanexpress website or the global.americanexpress.com/entertainment/home.
- Search for the event you wish to visit or browse for available offers.
- If eligible, on the Ticketmaster site under “Type” select the American Express preferred seating option.
- Purchase the tickets with your Amex card or pay with points.
How do I pay with points?
To pay with points, you need to call 800-AXP-EARN. The value of points when redeemed at Ticketmaster is 0.5 cents each, meaning you need 10,000 membership reward points to redeem for a $50 ticket. This is a low value, considering you can get 1 cent per point for other redemption options.
