EASY FREEBIE: Choose an Airport Lounge Pass ($40 Value)

I receive compensation for content and many links on this blog. Citibank is an advertising partner of this site, as is American Express, Chase, Barclays and Capital One. Any opinions expressed in this post are my own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by my advertising partners. I do not write about all credit cards that are available -- instead focusing on miles, points, and cash back (and currencies that can be converted into the same). Terms apply to the offers and benefits listed on this page.

I use my Citi Prestige Card and my to get into airport lounges.

But through October 31 you can buy an airport lounge pass from LoungeBuddy using the special Visa link and you’ll get up to $40 back on your one-time purchase.

If you don’t already have lounge access, or you’re traveling on an airline or through an airport where you don’t have lounge access, this is a fantastic freebie.

The offer does say ‘while supplies last’ so it’s possible they end the promotion early. You have to select the time you’re going to use the lounge and make your purchase in advance, so you cannot buy a pass now and just use it in the future.

Many lounges will be completely free under this offer, and some that are priced more than $40 will cost the increment over $40 that they usually charge (a $47 lounge will cost you $7).

In Seattle, for instance, you can use this at Alaska Airlines Boardrooms or at The Club lounge. At Washington Dulles, Lufthansa’s business class lounge.

  1. That was fast! “Thank you for visiting our offer. This promotion has ended and is unavailable for redemption.”

    Thanks though!

  2. Clearly you get a kickback or wouldn’t promote an expired offer. Typically I don’t get pissed off because your articles are free and provide a service, but this article with it’s long list of lounges seems like a copy and paste job rather than any due diligence on your part.

  3. When I pre-scheduled this post for a time I wasn’t going to be online the deal was live. I did not expect it to end so quickly. So sorry – was totally surprised it went this quickly, I figured with Visa involved and a published end date that it would last longer than it did.

    And no – contra AB’s suggestion – I do not get anything for it.

  4. Just wanted to say that I was fortunate to get this deal. I had to speak to support and while talking to them, they told me that the response on this promo was beyond incredible — so much so that it seemed like it surprised Visa as well.

    Sometimes great deals don’t last long!
