philemer's PP card arrived 20 days following approval of CSR. Others have reported an even quicker delivery. Yes, it comes via USPS.
Authorized User will receive their own PP card.

The PP Select membership offered through the CSR now includes digital pass access. Sign up in advance here: https://www.prioritypass.com/chasedmc
Note: Some lounges may not accept the digital pass. Make sure to check the PP lounge directory details for the specific lounge you plan on visiting.

Select only means the pass was courtesy of a credit card company. There are Priority Pass Select cards such as the Amex Hilton Surpass that charge $27 for everyone including the holder of the Amex card itself.

I don't remember reading anything definitive about free in the welcome letter you're referring to. Perhaps I need to read that again.

OK I re-read it and it states, "You and your accompanying guests may visit participating lounges as often as you wish during your membership year"

I can also use the Priority Pass Select Membership that came with my Amex Hilton Surpass under these exact same terms. However that version will incur a $27 charge for me and a $27 charge for my guests as often as I wish during my membership year.

Not saying that support staff have not made a mistake before, but looking forward to some real life experiences since Chase left their letter open to interpretation. - LOL!

I found it strange that my PP card issued through Chase has an expiration date in 2017. My other PP cards (through Citi Prestige and AMEX Platinum) expire in 2-3 years. I'm not sure if this means Chase is trying out the partnership with Priority Pass by seeing what happens in one year or if their contract renewal is on a yearly basis.

The one from the Ritz Card came with a 2018 expiration date.

(That should provide some fuel to the "CSR card will be devalued" folks in the Demise of the Amex thread.)

WOuldn't surprise me if they eliminated this benefit after the first year or two.

Same thing with the GE credit. I won't be able to use that until 2018.

Do note that some Priority Pass lounges do not allow guests as a matter of lounge policy. For example, the Avianca lounge at SJU is one of them: https://loungereview.com/lounges/avi...al-lounge-sju/

Well, PP's website for the lounge says
Conditions
Children under 12 years are admitted free - Dress code applicable (shirts and shoes required for entry) - Non-smoking.
Loopholes man(<12yr) . Doesn't explicitly say no guests?

Question about Priority Pass. Today I finally went in and activated my membership. I didn't get any email or anything about how to use.

Do I get something in the mail in a week or two confirming my enrollment? I have a flight next Tuesday I'd like to use the PP on ....

PP will send you a card and letter with a PIN. You need the PIN to register the card/number/digital card and use the app. You may be able to get them to give you the PP number and pin over the phone once you have your full cc #. I'm not sure about that. Maybe someone else can shed light? In my experience (with two other PP accounts), it took several weeks to get the PP card.

Have there been any data points on how long it takes to receive the priority pass in the mail? I requested mine on August 23rd and haven't received the card yet. (there was also an address issue with my card when it was first sent so I am asking to see if I should request a replacement priority pass card)

If your SO is using your second card, but the ID doesn't match, the merchant could report your card stolen and cause some trouble for your SO. I don't think you really want to do that.
Also, if you want to use the Priority Pass benefit, they will definitely ask for an ID.

I requested my PP card early afternoon of 22nd, so I like to think I was one of the first people to do so; still nothing. Hoping I get it here soon.

I don't have the ability to edit the wiki, but I think it would be worth adding the following:

Priority Pass Select
As soon as the account shows up online:
1. Click on Go To Ultimate Rewards.
2. Scroll down to the very bottom left and click on "Card Benefits"
3. Activate Membership to request card.
4. Card will take 1-2 weeks and can't be expedited, but members have reported success in charging the lounge access to the card and requesting a refund from Customer Service.

Duplicate Card (in lieu of AU card)
1. If you receive the plastic card, wait for the metal card to arrive automatically.
2. If you receive the metal card, send SM to request plastic card for use with overseas merchants that require a card imprint.
3. DO NOT request a replacement card (especially under any pretense that the card was lost or misplaced).

Got my Priority Pass Select pack today - very pleased to see it states "You and your accompanying guests may visit participating lounges as often as you wish during your membership year.". It does have a footnote with the usual "Access and length of stay may be restricted due to space constraints".
