Delta Selling Lounge Access on Groupon

Delta is selling lounge access on Groupon: $25 for a single visit pass, $89 for a five-visit punch card. The passes expire after six months. And don’t forget you can earn points and cash back for Groupon purchases.

Expires Apr 30, 2012. Limit 3 per person, may buy multiple as gifts. Not valid until 10/28/11. Must be 21 or older or be accompanied by guardian. Valid only when traveling same-day on any airline. Guest passes not included.

United is straight up selling access to walk-ins for $19. So I don’t really consider this an amazing, Groupon-worthy deal. But it’s still notable, since Delta normally sells one-day passes for $50. Which strikes me as sorta crazy pricing, since the lounges aren’t that great, although some of them do have showers. I could imagine passengers in LAX terminals 5, 6, 7, and 8 heading over to the Skyclub for a $25 shower.

  1. I finally experienced an over-crowded SkyClub this weekend, at DTW. For about 1.5 hour Saturday afternoon, there were about 100 people with no seat at the center club. Delta needs to get this under control. If I had obtained access to the club via a paid international business class ticket, I would have been pretty upset.

  2. Are these single visit our single day use? Groupon says single visit but refers/links to Delta’s single-day website info. Will they be good at multiple sky clubs on the same day during connections?

  3. Got my answer from Groupon – it’s a 1 visit pass so no luck if you have more than 1 Sky Club on your trip.

  4. The thing I don’t like about these passes is it’s valid for solo admission only: I like to “treat” family, colleagues, friends to lounge access, and it’s not economic to do it under this system.
