I'm not so good at reading websites.
What does this do? Does it get you into lots of lounges free? Because I like lounges and free.

And I should mention, I have 100 posts. I got my hundreth with this particular gem, which went unnoticed until now: http://www.dansdeals.com/forums/index.php?topic=6491.0;message=73955

By enrolling in Priority Pass Select, you acknowledge and agree that American Express will verify your Card account number and provide updated Card account information to Priority Pass from time to time.

Does this mean that there are chances that it won't work with canceled cards?

This "prestige" benefit normally costs $399!
 
The disadvantage of course is that you are explictly allowing them to check the validity of your AMEX Platinum card, so they probably will do that, and therefore you cannot use a cancelled card.
 
and yes, it does cost $27 per visitor.
 
The DAN lounge in TLV is included   :) 
 
 
Standard Membership    This low cost plan is designed for the traveler who wants the security of access when needed with a low annual fee - just US$99. After a visit to a participating lounge a fee of just US$27 per person, per visit is charged to the memberís designated payment card.
Annual Fee: US$99   
Member Visit Fee: US$27   
Guest Visit Fee: US$27       
 
Standard Plus Membership    This plan incorporates Standard Membership with 10 member lounge visits included - for an annual fee of just US$249. After the free visits have been used, each visit is charged at US$27 per visit to the member's designated payment card.
Annual Fee: US$249   
Member Visit Fee: 10 Visits FREE - then US$27   
Guest Visit Fee: US$27 

Prestige Membership    Designed for the frequent traveler who would prefer to make a one-off payment to gain access to lounges. For as little as US$399 free access to all the participating lounges in the program is available as often as required.
Annual Fee: US$399
Member Visit Fee:  All visits FREE
Guest Visit Fee: US$27

not necessarily. i had a free 'standard' membership courtesy of another banks 'wanabe' plat card. it's still active and hasn't billed $99 close to a year after that card CLOSED. not sure priority pass actually verifies

in any case it doesn't get checked at the door, the question is wether Priority pass will 'notice' and close your account in general

Rumor has it Global Entry is now free for Plats (and Black as well). This is both for primary and additional cardholders. Anyone have an Amex link with the juicy details?

Can PP benefit be enrolled in by AUs or only primary cardholders?
