The other option is of course to hang out at the front the the lounge and bum an entry!

I often will guest in total strangers-no skin off my back!

you might find one nice guy here and there to guest you in but most people hate being asked

as far as swiping the card they are very strict on that but as far as flying on the airline whose lounge you wish to enter they never asked me once for a boarding pass or any flight info I just give them the card and my ID

Weird, when I was using my AMEX Plat for Continental President's club access they would always ask for my boarding pass!

When I travel with someone that is using his Continental Presidents club membership they always ask him for his boarding pass, But in 8 months of me traveling every week using the Amex Plat they never asked me for my boarding pass

???
That's totally and completely bizarre, I have never ever been asked for a BP with my PC membership., and was always asked for my BP with the AMEX Plat. 
Why would they ask for a BP with a PC membership if it's not required?

$375 although they have a promo now $75 off, they used to have a additional promo 5000 EQM"s + the $75 off could be you can still get it I think it was targeted though

Nice, I think I am going to go for it. It's basically the same as the amex plat, right?
