I knew I was holding out on a club membership for good reason

The link from Twitter does not appear to be working:

Hmmm, now I have to decide if it's worth upgrading from Gold to Platinum. $450 is a lot for a credit card.

If you travel multiple airlines(AA, CO, DL) or go through a US hub now that they are part of the program it is well worth the cost, as you are getting 4 different airline clubs for a cheap price when you factor that into the cost of the card.

This agreement is unique in that Card members can access US Airways Club locations regardless of which airline they are flying that day.

So in the other instances, you must be flying the airlines that day (AA, CO, DL), but not US. So this provides some additional value if you fly thru those airports, but necessarily the airline. Not bad.

Awesome new!!

I held out on renewing my US Air lounge membership last year and regretted it when I was at the airport. Last flight I considered just buying it but thank goodness!

+1 Amex & US ^

Does this include all of the lounges in PHX? I know that Priority Pass only got access to the US Club on the B Concourse. It sure would be nice to use the ones on A. Guess I will try it out when I am at the airport tomorrow.

EDIT - Nevermind. I checked the link and it lists all three clubs in PHX. Should have read that first before posting.

While this is a nice option for many, the loss of access to UA clubs (and CO clubs when flying UA or US) make this less attractive to me, especially given the elite discounts on US club membership.

I think I have most of the other plat benefits through my normal (much lower fee) Amex products.

I had been holding out on a renewal so I could qualify for miles toward status if they had such a promo later in the year that would put me over the top in my requal for CP. But thanks to the HSJ promo I will hit CP that way and thanks to this new perk of the AMEX I will get my club membership as well. Sometimes life makes up for all of the times it dumps on you I guess.

very interesting that this doesn't require a US Airways ticket. Not that US Airways has a large club presence outside of its hubs. Nice for me, however, since the only lounge at my home airport (BDL) is US. Probably nothing special though.

I obviously don't know what deal US and AMEX made but by not requiring a US same day ticket more people will be able to take advantage of the benefit and if AMEX pays on a usage fee US stands to make more money.

Point of Clarification:

Access is to US CLUBS.... not the PHL Envoy Departure Lounge which is not a US Airways Club.

can you use the Envoy Departure Lounge if you are Chairman and also have a club membership? Flying domestic on US?

No. You have to be flying internationally and be in Envoy or be *Gold.
