Folks are reporting that starting today, October 2, 2017, you will no longer be able to buyAMEX Centurion Lounge day passes! So if you don’t have an AMEX credit card granting you access to the Centurion Lounges, you will NOT be allowed in.
Before today, anyone with an AMEX credit card could purchase a day pass into any AMEX Centurion Lounge for $50 per person. But to the imaginable delight of folks with Centurion Lounge access from credit cards, this will no longer be an option!
So AMEX is doing this to prevent crowding in their lounges, and to give folks with their premium credit cards a better experience. If you have a credit card that grants Centurion Lounge access, you’re probably happy to hear this! But if you do NOT, your lounge options just got smaller.
With these cards, the lounge policies will remain the same. You can bring 2 guests with these cards. And you can purchase day passes for more guests if you like.
For folks who don’t have AMEX Platinum credit cards, you can no longer buy access to AMEX Centurion Lounges for $50 per day.
This may be disappoints news for some. But why buy access, when you can apply for cards that give you access for free? 😉
How do you feel about this policy change?
