Update: Today is the final day to use your AMEX issued Priority Pass card at airport restaurants.
I’ve taken advantage of this benefit at Tel Aviv’s Schmoozy Bar for free bottles of kosher wine:
And Cleveland’s Bar Symon for free bottles of beer and snacks:
Luckily I’ll still be able to take advantage of this on my Chase Sapphire Reserve and Ritz Carlton card!
What are your favorite Priority Pass airport restaurants?
Originally posted on 5/28:
- Centurion lounge access
- Delta SkyClub lounge access
- Priority Pass lounge membership
- Airspace lounge access
- Escape lounge access
Once upon a time, Priority Pass included access to airlines lounges like United. That fell by the wayside, but over the past few years Priority Pass has made up for airline club losses by adding airport restaurants to their portfolio. Typically you can get a $28 credit for yourself and each of your guests. You can lookup participating restaurants and lounges on their site.
In Cleveland I stop at Bar Symon and pickup a to-go bag full of beer, granola bars, drinks, chips, and fruit for free thanks to my Priority Pass card.
In Tel Aviv you can get a 100 Shekel credit at Schmoozy Bar instead of going to the overcrowded Dan lounge.
Sadly, starting on 8/1, Priority Pass memberships issued by all AMEX cards will no longer allow restaurant credits, though they will continue to work at traditional lounges.
This is certainly a devaluation of the Priority Pass program offered by AMEX cards. In Cleveland I can still access the Airspace Lounge, but in Fort Lauderdale for example there are no lounges other than the $28 credit you can get at Kafe Kalik.
