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, or Chase Sapphire Reserve, you can enter 900+ lounges throughout the world for free with Priority Pass Select.
Use the Priority Pass for Access to 900+ Lounges, Including the Virgin America Loft Lounge in Los Angeles. It’s an Amazing Place to Watch Planes Land. Million Mile Secrets Team Member Keith Spotted a Qantas A380 Landing!
I’ll explain which card has the best airport lounge perks for your situation!

Million Mile Secrets reader, Prabha, sent an question via email:
With the Chase Freedom Unlimited card, when can I transfer the sign-up bonus of 15,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points to airline partners like United Airlines instead of redeeming for $150 cash back?
Great question, Prabha!
Earning transferable points like Chase Ultimate Rewards points is the trick to travel flexibility! And often times, you can get more value for your points by transferring to airline and hotel partners instead of redeeming for cash back.
But to transfer Chase points to travel partners from no annual fee cards like the Freedom or Freedom Unlimited, you’ll need to have another eligible Chase card, like the Chase Sapphire Preferred.
Otherwise, the points you earn with the Freedom Unlimited can only be redeemed for 1 cent each for cash back or towards travel.
The Sign-Up Bonus With the Freedom Unlimited Can Be Worth More When You Have a 2nd Chase Ultimate Rewards Card! For Example, You Can Get a Free Night at the Hyatt Centric Santa Barbara Hotel, Which Can Cost $200+!
I’ll explain when Chase Ultimate Rewards points can be transferred to airline and hotels partners for Big Travel!

If you’ve been considering the Chase Fairmont card, you have very little time left to apply.
Via Reddit, the Chase Fairmont is being discontinued. They’re officially NO longer accepting applications for the card, and the last known application link was taken down this afternoon. But Frequent Miler reports there’s still a working link!
I doubt the link will last long. So you’ll have to move fast if you’re interested!
This card is NOT affected by the Chase “5/24 rule”, so even folks who have applied for more than 5 cards from any bank (excluding certain business cards) in the past 24 months can be approved.
We don’t earn a commission on this card, but we’ll always let you know about important changes to our miles & points hobby!

Surprise! Via Doctor of Credit, many folks report receiving 10,000 free Alaska Airlines miles in their Alaska Airlines account over the weekend.
This appears to be tied to a new promotion launched by Alaska Airlines for members of Virgin America’s frequent flyer program who did NOT have an Alaska Airlines account, but were recently assigned one by Alaska Airlines.
But folks on Flyertalk say they’ve received 10,000 Alaska Airlines miles even if they’re already members of both airlines’ frequent flyer programs.
