While your wallet could be thick on a day-to-day basis, stuffing in your Priority Pass card can be the final knockout in making your wallet too heavy to carry. Luckily, for some cardholders, you can download the Priority Pass app and display your membership card directly from your screen — no more worrying about having your card at check-in.

Unfortunately, not all cards are extended this convenient perk. Currently, the three cards that do have access to this feature are the Platinum Card from American Express, its business version and the Citi Prestige Card.

Two fantastic cards have also recently been announced, both of which include a Priority Pass Select membership, but neither allows you to access with the mobile app. The revamped Ritz-Carlton Rewards Card and the Chase Sapphire Reserve Card both give you a membership, but neither offers digital access. Although this may be a small inconvenience, the perks of the Ritz-Carlton Card, and the 100,000-point sign-up bonus for the Chase Sapphire Reserve Card, may quickly outweigh the need to carry the card.

For a complete comparison of the cards that offer digital Priority Pass access, check out TPG Contributor Lori Zaino’s post.

Have you tried out the digital Priority Pass card?

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.
