Title: PRIORITY PASS
Post by: yechezkel 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?

A friend got a letter from priority pass after canceling his pat card, saying that his priority pass card has also been canceled.

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.
Iím now enrolled in the prestige membership level, thru my American express platinum card.
Since Iím taking into consideration to close my Amex credit card in a few weeks, Iíd like to know if Iíll 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.

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

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!)

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,

I have had a priority pass card for the last 2-3 years and used it many times. every lounge is a little different. let me try to break it down.
Every lounge will take your card information and make you sign (I say take because some of them still do a imprint and some swipe. Some lounges even if the card is inactive (not expired but actually canceled) will just assume there is something wrong and take down the card number manually, others will deny you entry although this is rare. If you leave the Priority pass card active and cancel the credit card associated with the card it will still work although once priority pas sees you accessed a lounge they will send you a email or letter in the mail asking you to update you cc.

I also received letter from ppass saying I recently canceled my plat amex and I should please call them to "discuss subscription arrangements" as my membership is no longer active. But I assume its YMMV in terms of getting into various lounges with the card and as its been said - it isnt linked to any credit card so whats the worst that will happen? another letter?

i just cancelled my platinum card, i tried logging into my priority pass account w/o any luck so i called them and was told tht my account has been suspended, she wasn't sure why but suggested it might be since the credit card on file  is inactive, and i should call back during reg. business hours......

Dear XXXXX: thanks for your Priority Pass enquiry, since this membership is a benefit of your American Express credit card, your Priority Pass membership will be cancelled as well.

If you have further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you

Sorry, no. Priority pass has nothing to do with amex platinum. Amex just pays for the membership as they also do with global entry.

In the future you can call up priority pass or you cc companys and tell them your overseas and they will mail you another card to the overseas address. GL and have a safe trip.

Just a few days ago I tried using my PP card to enter the Dan lounge in Ben Gurion. They swiped it, had me sign something, and allowed me in!
Since I was worried about it being against Halacha (the PP account was closed); I promptly left the lounge (which was overcrowded anyway).
Will I get a bill somehow? Can anyone explain what happened?

The swipe isn't checking if it's valid.  My guess is they might send you a bill but don't have any way to enforce it.

But was your Priority Pass a "Select" card that you got as a benefit from the Platinum card?

Since you had the Priority Pass prior to AMEX Platinum promotion, it may (and seems to) have a different SOP as far as linked credit cards.

I used my Priority Pass Select at BOS Terminal A P Club yesterday, and at reception was told that I'd need to call Priority Pass and ask for a new card, as "Select" wasn't being granted access after 9/30. I thought all Priority Pass CO access was being removed... seems like maybe only the AMEX Platinum perk "Select" level?
Title: Re: PRIORITY PASS
Post by: sammy-in-ny on August 24, 2011, 03:33:50 PM
(not just trying to up my posts#... different topic)

Posts in this thread have talked about (1) using Priority Pass Select tied to an active AMEX Platinum card, and (2) using Priority Pass Select tied to a canceled AMEX Platinum card. I don't see any discussion about using Priority Pass Select tied to a different credit card, where the change from AMEX Plat to the new CC was done before Plat was canceled.

Perhaps the issue about the canceled Priority Pass cards is due to the fact that the credit card attached is canceled, not specifically that the AMEX Platinum credit card attached is canceled?

Just a thought. Of course, this doesn't explain what Mocha experienced (http://www.dansdeals.com/forums/index.php?topic=7238.msg115414#msg115414).

Yes that is correct. I was told the same at the Red Carpet lounge at SAN.

This is from the Priority Pass website;
Note: Members holding a Priority Pass Select membership card and Priority Pass cardholders in the U.S. that receive their membership through a U.S. financial institution will not be allowed access to this Lounge effective 01OCT2011.

This could be the case. As i mentioned in a previous post, my wife and I successfully accessed a lounge with my PP card after receiving the letter that it was no longer valid due to my cancellation of the amex plat card. However several days ago I received a letter (which I have attached) asking me to update my credit card as amex has declined the $27 charge for my guest (my wife). So I called PP because even though they have no way of charging me the $27 I don't like to have a unpaid bills...anywhere. When I spoke with the rep at PP she took my amex gold card # to pay the bill and said I should contact amex to update the account not realizing that I no longer have the plat. So as of now I will assume that I can continue using the PP for my wife and I and when I get the bill in the mail two months later I can just call>pay>repeat.

Post by: NateOren on August 09, 2012, 07:11:20 AM
I know this is an old thread, but I checked it out before a recent flight and I am sure others still do as well.

I tried using the card in 2 airports, CDG and DUB. In CDG, they still have the old swiper where they get an imprint of the card, of course, it worked.
In Dublin, they have a really new facility and swiped the card into their database and of course, I was asked to leave.

I got the card when I signed up for Amesx Plat. I cancelled Amex and got the letter stating that the card was cancelled.

Title: New LGA lounge added for PRIORITY PASS members: Maple Leaf Lounge LGA
Post by: eliteflyer on November 07, 2012, 11:54:10 AM
This is great for Amex Platinum members who were bummed over no longer being able to access CO/United. Now, you can access the Maple Leaf Lounge at LGA. It's just outside the CO gates, and last I was there they had complimentary Glenlivet 15. Also, they are set to remodel the lounge (formerly a Continental Presidents Club) this Winter.

I basically asked them this exact question for a friend who was thinking of signing up for a card that gives PP, but would be flying out prior to receiving the PP card in the mail.

They answered that the PP number for the digital in-app card is available 48 hours after getting the Amex card, i.e. no need to wait for the physical PP card to come.  They dodged my repeated attempts to ask whether they'd do a one-time entry fee refund.

I have PP membership from an Amex Hilton Ascend card. The PP card says it expires in October 2019. If I downgrade from the Ascend to the regular no-AF Amex Hilton which does not include PP membership, will this immediately cancel my PP membership? Or will it still be valid until 10/19?
In my experience itís been canceled after I downgraded, but Iím not sure how long it takes to be canceled.

PP is increasing chargeable lounge visits to $32 as of Oct 1st.

On the 1st October 2018 we will be increasing the fee for chargeable lounge visits to US$32 per visit per person. Any complimentary visits included as a part of your membership will not be affected by this fee increase.

It has been over 10 years since we have increased our visit fees and during this time we have done all we can to absorb the rising costs of providing airport lounge access to our Members. We have unfortunately reached the point where we need to make an adjustment to our prices to maintain the quality offering of Priority Pass.

During these past 10 years, we have been committed to growing our network and bringing our Members the best global airport lounge access program. We are proud that our Members can now access over 1200 lounges worldwide, as well as the recently introduced dining, spa and relaxation experiences which are supported by a 24x7 multilingual Membership Services team. Our latest Priority Pass app was developed to respond to the evolving needs of travelers around the world, using leading edge technology to enhance our Membersí travel experiences.

Raising our fees ensures we can maintain the quality offering of Priority Pass and continue to invest in both the growth of offerings available to Members (weíve some exciting announcements to make soon!) and the quality experience offered. Should you have any queries, you can find answers to most questions in our online FAQ section.

Today I went into the app to get the digital pass to enter the lounge, but it said it had expired, so I pulled up the pass via WhatsApp as I have send it to a friend a while ago, she scanned the barcode and I went into the lounge, I called priority pass and they told me that chase cut off the card, but I still was able to go into Dan's lounge and then to schmoozy, the best part is as I don't have an account linked to the card I can swipe whatever I want, I brought in 4 people to the lounge and nothing happened, I even swiped them at both, at Dan and at schmoozy, so far it's workin

Not sure what your asking, but the way it works is you get yourself into the lounge and two guests when you present your card and they swipe/scan it, and if you go to a different lounge you again get to go in with you and two guests when they swipe/scan your card.
You say: Hi, me and two guests, here's my pass.

I traveled with a group of friends thru KBP and I made sure we should have enough PP cards to cover all of us, one of them brought his wife's card and it worked like a charm, but if it worked in KBP doesn't necessarily mean it will work in a  normal westernized country, cause I think they usually match the card with the boarding pass
Title: Re: PRIORITY PASS
Post by: yelped on October 16, 2018, 10:07:47 PM
Not so sure they actually check to see if it matches. It seems they care about just having a boarding pass. Some lounges will ask for ID, too, though, in my experience.

Most PP lounges I have been to asked for 3 things: BP, ID and PP.

There are exceptions (Plaza Premium YYZ did not ask for ID for example), though the norm is that they ask for all 3 IME.

+1
Although more than 1 time was I not asked for ID.
IIRC KAL lounge LAX asked more my PP and BP, while they asked for ID from the guest.
And the AS lounge there asked for just my flight number instead of my BP when I said I was arriving.

After receiving a Chase Reserve card I applied for Priority Pass membership.
I received 2 Priority Pass memberships cards in the mail recently.
I thought it was odd, but shrugged it off.
Recently when I traveled I used one of these cards to enter a lounge.
Today I called PP to find out why I have 2 different cards.
They told me one is from Chase and one is from Amex.
However, I cancelled my Amex card years ago!
It turns out I had used the PP associated with my Amex on my recent trip.

Will I be billed somehow for this?
If not, what can I do to "right the ship" (since I unknowingly used a PP card associated with a cancelled Amex account)?
Does it help that I currently have a valid PP membership from Chase which I could have just as easily used (but made an innocent mistake)?

Not really. I just have 2 separate cards for Amex and chase. I'd guess, that nothing will happen if you closed your account years ago. If they do try to charge it back to you, you can try to fight it by asking them why the card was not deactivated. I find it really odd that a card would still be active that long.

I have a PP from an AU on a CSR. The au card was closed a few months ago.

I just used the PP to access a lounge, they swiped the pp card, looked a little confused, and then told me to just go inside (I don't know what came up on his screen but I didn't sign or show boarding pass).
