Priority Pass has previously launched their Black Friday offer that for this year offers up to 50% off paid memberships until December 6, 2021.
Priority Pass allows members to access more than 1,300 lounges worldwide and now also dine at a number of various airport restaurants.
The paid Priority Pass options are often overlooked in favor of the many credit that come with PP memberships these days but it could be worthwhile to have another look at it for those outside the relevant markets.
You can access this offer on Priority Pass website here.
SAVE UP TO 50% ON MEMBERSHIP
Rediscover the joy of travel
As restrictions start to ease and travel returns, you might be looking to book your next trip, for business or leisure. Enhance your journey with all the benefits of a Priority Pass membership. Join Priority Pass this Black Friday to save up to 50%.
1300+ Airport lounges and travel experiencesPriority Pass membership gives you access to over 1300 lounges in more than 600 cities across 148 countries, regardless of airline or class of travel. Choose from our three membership plans, designed to suit your travel needs.
These are the offers available under the Black Friday campaign:
In my opinion, we can disregard the Standard membership. You would be charged $32 for each visit and would have to pay $49 for the basic annual membership as well. It makes zero sense.
The Standard Plus membership includes 10 visits for $194 so that’s $19.40 per visit which is acceptable depending on how often you travel without lounge access. What I don’t like about having such a small amount of visits available is that each time when there’s just a little time I’m thinking about “is it really worth burning a visit now” rather than just go and swipe the card.
The Prestige membership comes with a whopping $429 charge and that’s certainly a lot higher than it was in the past. It has unlimited visits but charges guests $32 like all the other memberships. I think this is a ridiculous price. The Prestige membership doesn’t even have a discount attached under this campaign. What’s the point?
Keep in mind that for around the same price as the Prestige membership you can already get most premium credit cards such as the Capital One Venture X ($395), Citi Prestige ($495), Chase Sapphire Reserve ($550), and Amex Platinum ($695). Even international markets have Priority Pass readily available for various financial products.
I do like my Priority Pass and if unable to get it through the credit card I would probably be enticed to pay for the Standard membership to have a backup throughout the year.
It really depends on your travel pattern and the airlines you’re flying. For example, Lufthansa has closed many lounges in Germany that have now reopened as Priority Pass participating lounges. You won’t have access unless you’re a Priority Pass member or pay at the door. With a high flight frequency out of airports such as Nuremberg or Cologne, it might be worthwhile to just get a Priority Pass even in the unlimited version.
The Black Friday promotion to purchase a Priority Pass membership with up to 50% discount (for the smallest, most useless membership). Interested customers could purchase the PP outright without having to get a credit card first.
The mid-range membership called Standard Plus is a decent deal for the occasional user as one lounge visit would cost $19.40 if fully utilized. This campaign runs until December 6th unless they extend it.
