SALT LAKE CITY — American Express is now the Official Payments Partner for the Jazz and Vivint Arena. Also, the multi-year partnership assigns American Express as the Official Payment Systems Provider for all events at the arena. 

In a release from the Jazz, it says the new partnership will serve to create an unforgettable customer experience at the 18,206-seat downtown facility. 

“This partnership allows us to create unique opportunities and unforgettable experiences that far exceed fans’ expectations while attending live sports and entertainment events,” said Chris Barney, chief commercial officer for the Utah Jazz.

Furthermore, the release says American Express Card Members get exclusive perks with the new partnership. For instance, card members can access tickets and merchandise before the general public. Also, Vivint has two dedicated entrances for card members, located at doors two and eight. Specially designed private experiences are another perk for card members. 

In 2023, the arena will debut a contactless American Express Shop. The shop will sell food, beverages and merchandise, some from Utah’s small businesses.

The store will function by allowing card members to tap their card upon entering the shop. Then, sensors inside the store identify the weight of each item selected from the shelves and automatically charges customers for items when they exit the store. 

Card members can also upgrade their seats to a close-up NBA experience at every regular season home game. 

In 1979, Salt Lake City was named home to the Jazz; founded as the eighteenth member of the NBA.
