Airport Lounge Perks Compared: Chase Sapphire Reserve, AMEX Platinum, Citi Prestige

Wondering what’s the best card for airport lounges?

Spending time in airport lounges can save you money and make your airport experience more enjoyable.  Because many lounges have free Wi-Fi, snacks, drinks (including alcohol), and comfortable seats to relax.

To access lounges you typically need elite status with an airline or a Business Class or First Class ticket.  Some lounges give you access if you purchase a day pass.

But with any AMEX Platinum (personal card, business card, or Mercedes-Benz card), the Citi Prestige Card, or Chase Sapphire Reserve, you can enter 900+ lounges throughout the world for free with Priority Pass Select.
