We just visited 4 countries and used this program for the 1st time. I used loungeexpert.com to look in advance where the lounges were and cross-referenced the airline webpages to be sure about day passes. Loungeexpert did help with locations, times and some pictures.

Just got AMEX Plat. and obviously get lounge access as part of it but am doing domestic leg of MegaDO leaving from ORD-LAX-SFO-IAH-ORD and need to meet the minimum spend.

Say I get 1 lounge pass at every departure and arrival airport. 8 passes x $50 is $400. Would I have any issue mailing them all in at once and getting reimbursed?

Figure with the 2 month free trial for $2.95, this is an easy way to clear $600 in lounge passes.

Theoretically, yes that works, but there are reports just a couple posts above yours that the $2.95 offer doesn't work anymore. You can try to sign up and see what happens.

There's the $19.95 offer but there been a delay in getting the membership. You need to be a member during the visit to get reimbursed.

Customer Service inquiries, please call 1-800-365-4357.
What did it cost that way?

TIA

$9.66 total for a two-month trial for three accounts. I am sure they will auto charge if I do not cancel before the two months expire.

Thank you


It is then 199 for the year. I was looking for a more reasonable offer like the 29 or 59 after the first two months.

It probably is worth the 199 with all the skypasses but I dont fly that many connections

Ceres, et al:

This is the link for $19.99 for one year: https://subscription.timeinc.com/sto...l?link=1005217

Is this the one you are trying that is no longer working?

And just want to confirm - you attempt to buy it from that link, it claims to go through, but then you never see a credit card charge and you can never log in directly to the skyguide website?

And frustrating because now they have my credit card information.

Just a new data point. I signed up via https://subscription.timeinc.com/sto...l?link=1005217 about 10 days ago. I received no confirmation email or charge to my Amex - and just figured it didn't go through as others reported. Today, I just received a welcome email with my membership number.
