Are you a sports fan? Or do you enjoy fine dining experiences? With the Chase Sapphire Reserve card, you have access to purchase tickets to VIP events ranging from exclusive dinners with famous chefs to popular professional sporting events.
And these cardholder experiences are available to all cards in the Chase Sapphire lineup, including the Chase Sapphire (no longer available to new applicants), Sapphire Preferred, and Sapphire Reserve.
You can even use Chase Ultimate Rewards points to purchase tickets to some events. But this is probably not a good deal for most folks!
I’ll explain how you can use your Chase Sapphire card to get to these exclusive events!
Chase Sapphire Exclusive Events
With any of the Chase Sapphire cards, you can purchase tickets to special VIP events.
For example, a recent list of events included a private dinner series with famous chefs for folks in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and San Francisco.
Past events included attending the Emmy Awards in Los Angeles.
Chase updates the list of events periodically. But a limited number of tickets are available to most events. So you’ll have to act quickly if you see an event you’d like to attend.
For example, there were multiple packages to attend the Emmy Awards. But most were sold out.
And tickets are not cheap! The lowest price I found for Emmy Award tickets was $450 per person. You could also use Chase Ultimate Rewards points, but I wouldn’t recommend it. Because you’ll only get 1 cent per point, which is not a good deal compared to other ways to redeem Chase Ultimate Rewards points.
Madison Square Garden Tickets
Besides VIP events, you can also use a Chase Sapphire card to get preferred seating when you purchase tickets for concerts or shows located at venues owned by the Madison Square Garden company. This includes:
- Beacon Theatre
- Madison Square Garden
- Radio City Music Hall
- The Chicago Theatre
- The Forum
- The Theater at MSG
So you can purchase tickets with preferred seating to the Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes, which is located at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
Tickets for Chase cardholders are available to hundreds of other events too like concerts and sporting events.
With the Sapphire Reserve or other Chase Sapphire branded cards like Chase Sapphire Preferred, you can purchase tickets to events like professional golf tournaments or exclusive private dinners with famous chefs.
But ticket quantities to most events are extremely limited and sell out quickly. I’d recommend visiting the Chase Sapphire events site periodically to see if there are any events you might be interested in attending.
