Re: Credit cards with airport lounge access?

Are you talking about full lounge access or a couple of day passes per year? Also what airlines were you referring to?

Re: Credit cards with airport lounge access?

If you are really just interested in airport lounge access, google Priority Pass. Essentially, it is the same program Amex uses for their platinum. Depending on how often you plan on using it, it may be a cheaper alternative to the Amex Plat card's annual fee.

In my wallet: Amex PRG & Zync, Amex BCE (19.2k), Chase Freedom (5k), PSECU Visa/PSL (20k)
Current Scores: Equifax: 738 (Fako) TransUnion: 721 (Fico) Experian: 717 (Fico)

My Surpass actaully came with Priority pass. They also waived the $75 AF on the card for the first year, as well. Even though that is not advertised.

Both, best value relative to the annual fee. I know the Citi Dividend World Elite MC offers these perks with no fee, but it is upgrade only.

Interested in a card that provides the benefits by offsetting the cost with merchant fee's and a fair AF.
