INSIDER SECRET: Many of the best credit cards with airport lounge access come with a Priority Pass Select membership that allows you to bring two guests for free into airport lounges, which is a perk that even the most expensive ($429) paid Priority Pass membership doesn’t have.
One of the best perks of Priority Pass is that you can use it in restaurants associated with a lounge. Bambuza at Seattle-Tacoma airport was recently added to the list of U.S. restaurants in the Priority Pass network. Below is the full list.
If you have a Priority Pass membership associated with an Amex card you won’t have access to Priority Pass restaurants. So you’ll need a membership from a card like these:
- Chase Sapphire Reserve®
- U.S. Bank Altitude Reserve Visa Infinite Card (four free entries per year for you and one guest)
- Citi Prestige® Card
Bambuza is located in Seattle-Tacoma’s North Satellite on the concourse level. It is open from 4:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. daily.
With your Priority Pass membership and a valid same-day boarding pass, you’re entitled to $28 worth of food and drinks, but the credit won’t cover the tip and it doesn’t apply to to-go or “grab-and-go” orders. Also, you can get the credit for one additional guest (in addition to the cardholder), which means you can get up to $56 off your bill.

Cards that come with Priority Pass membership
Link: What to know to be sure you get into Priority Pass lounges
Certain cards include a Priority Pass membership which gives cardholders access to airport lounges worldwide. In many cases, you’re allowed two free guests or immediate family as well. So getting a Priority Pass membership as a credit card perk is a much better deal than paying for it outright because even the top-tier paid membership doesn’t come with free guests:
The Chase Sapphire Reserve comes with a Priority Pass Select membership and you can bring two guests with you for free. So even with the Sapphire Reserve’s $550 annual fee it’s a much better deal, especially when you consider that the card comes with an annual $300 travel credit and slew of other perks including top-notch travel coverages. Take a look at our Chase Sapphire Reserve review for more details.
