Try American Express Concierge
If you have access to using Amex’s Concierge service, give them a call on Tuesday and inquire about tickets to Hamilton. Simply call the number on the back of your American Express Platinum or Centurion card. The Concierge service had worked for me many times, including the time I brought my family to New York City and we purchased tickets to Hamilton and got 3rd Row Orchestra Seats for $199, while the people next to us paid $1,000 each by buying them after-market.
NOTE: Reader Sean reported “Called AMEX Platinum Concierge and they said they aren’t able to help with Hamilton day of sales because of the digital waiting room” In the past, I’ve gotten tickets from Amex even on the 1st day of the sales, but as always, things could very well have changed. If anyone heard differently, please share.
Don’t throw away your shot
If you’ve been meaning to watch Hamilton, and have been putting it off due to the absurd ticket prices that are way over face value, this is your chance to get tickets at face value when the next block of seats go on sale for Hamilton in Chicago.
