PRIORITY PASS
« on: May 10, 2011, 01:06:59 AM »
Does anyone know if you cancel your amex platinum and you already got the priority access pass, Does the priority access  still work to get into lounges like the platinum card still works until the card expires? or do they stop allowing access when you cancel the platinum card?

Interesting. let me show you a back-and-forth email that I had with Priority pass. I Wrote as follows:
"To whom it may concern at the Priority Pass center.
I知 now enrolled in the prestige membership level, thru my American express platinum card.
Since I知 taking into consideration to close my Amex credit card in a few weeks, I壇 like to know if I値l still stay
enrolled un your program.
Sincerely,
Sice Incomer"
They replied:
"Thank you for your inquiry. The membership would remain active until the expiration date on
April 05, 2014. Please let us know if we may be of further assistance.
Sincerely,

I replied back to be sure:
"And just to be sure, will I stay enrolled in my current status, that is free of charge, or will I be billed if I close the card in
the end?
Thanks
Side incomer".
Tehy replied:
"Your membership has already been paid for by your American Express card. You will not be
billed at the expiration of the membership. The only time there is a charge is when you take a
guest to the lounge. The fee per guest is a $27.00 charge.

I had already received my priority pass, i then cancelled, and about a week later got a letter stating that my status has been discontinued. i can however retain that status by paying them the $300 something in fees.

could it be that it will only stay active if you've been a member for some time (like 30 days or so)? cuz i canceled literally like a week after getting my card...

I don't think the airlines can check to see if the card is active.  And how will they charge you $27 if they have no active card to charge it to? (Catch 22-if it is active they shouldn't be charging anything!)
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I believe they sent it, just saying it doesn't sound enforceable.
YMMV.

I used it this week, they swiped it I had to sign a receipt with my name on it, I'm not sure why.
Is it possible that PP card is automatically linked to the Amex card to charge $27 for a guest?
I asked them if I can bring in a guest for free they said sure, then they swiped it,
