I got mine through Western back in the late 1970's. Cost me $250. Delta wanted to take it away when they merged since they didn't offer a Lifetime membership. Offered me three years free. I said BS and with several other SLC flyers threatened to sue. "You bought the assets of Western and the liabilities. If you consider us a liability, so be it." Anyway it never came to that, they saw our point.

At the same time I bought lifetime memberships in American, United, Northwest, TWA and Pan Am clubs as well. I flew a lot back then. Total cost for all of them was around $2500 IIRC. Going on 40+ years, I can still use three of them!
