LoungeBuddy recently launched a new promotion, offering a $10 credit to new customers who use a referral link or code towards their first airport club lounge booking. Considering day passes to airport club lounges cost upwards of $50, this presents a pretty significant saving. If you’re scoffing at the idea of paying for airport club lounge access, it can actually be worth it if you find yourself traveling in coach on a long layover, without lounge access through any other means.
Currently, LoungeBuddy sells day passes to 41 airport lounges throughout the U.S., Europe, and South America. Several Alaska Airlines Board Rooms and the Star Alliance lounge in Buenos Aires are included on the list. While the selection isn’t huge, more lounges will surely be added as LoungeBuddy grows. In the mean time, the app continues to be incredibly useful for tracking which airport lounge you have access to based on airline elite status, credit card benefits, etc. Simply enter the airport of your choice and your options are displayed, along with photos and reviews. Conveniently, LoungeBuddy is available on both iTunes and Android.
Regardless of whether or not you think you’ll ever purchase a day pass through LoungeBuddy, it doesn’t hurt to add the $10 credit to your account. You may at some point experience a long flight delay, in which case you’ll appreciate the ability to get a comfortable place to relax, eat, and use wifi at a $10 discount. Adding the $10 credit to your account and redeeming it is fairly straightforward and explained on this page.
If you use my LoungeBuddy referral link or code (ptchaser), you’ll get $10 off and I’ll receive $5 cash when you purchase a day pass. I know, I won’t quit my
nonexistent day job over this.
