Airport lounges are the best way to relax, get work done or simply avoid crowded terminals before a flight. LoungeBuddy is a service that connects passengers to lounges all over the world that can be accessed for a fee (per visit). LoungeBuddy has teamed up with Visa to give passengers $40 off a one-time lounge pass to any lounge that LoungeBuddy sells access to —in many cases this will make the pass free. To redeem this discount, simply select the lounge you’d like to visit and pay with any Visa card — the discount will be applied automatically.

This promotion is great for those who don’t already have airport lounge access through elite status or through services like Priority Pass, which comes free with the Citi Prestige card and the Platinum Card from American Express. You can access any of LoungeBuddy’s wide range of lounges — from the Hawaiian Airlines Plumeria Lounge in Honolulu (HNL) to the Plaza Premium Lounge in Siem Reap, Cambodia (REP).

Note that you can only purchase one pass per customer, and the offer is only available through this promotional page — not through LoungeBuddy’s mobile app. You must purchase your pass by October 31 (or while supplies last) to receive the discount.

The Platinum Card® from American Express

While this premium card has one of the highest annual fees on the market, it has several valuable perks that could make it worthwhile, depending on your travel patterns. These include a $200 annual airline rebate, lounge access, free Hilton Gold status and free Starwood Preferred Guest Gold status.
