American Express Platinum Card Now Gives Two Guests Free Access To Priority Pass Lounges
The American Express Platinum card has just announced a number of significant benefits (and an increase to the annual fee to $550). This card also comes with a Priority Pass membership, Priority Pass memberships from credit card issuers vary with some giving unlimited guest access and some giving no guest access.
Previously the American Express Platinum card allowed you to bring guests, but you were charged $27 per guest. On February 21st this benefit was improved and you’re now allowed to bring two guests with you free of charge. I’ve confirmed this benefit change, but I’m unsure why it wasn’t communicated to cardholders and why it wasn’t mentioned in the recent list of benefit additions.
