UPDATE: Chase is discontinuing their membership with the Lounge Club program and therefore this benefit is going away. You have until the expiration date on the card to visit the lounge for free.
I was actually doing a massive cleanup of my apartment this past weekend and throwing away millions of papers that I do not need. Amongst that was the Chase Ink Bold packet I received when I applied for the card. I quickly went through it and realized there is nothing I need and in the garbage it went. However, I did manage to rip out one important page that detailed the complimentary airport lounge access you get with the card. A benefit I totally forgot about to be quite honest.
While I enjoy airport lounge access it is not something I’d ever pay for. With the card you receive two free visits to participating club lounges each year you have the card. I believe your one year time spam starts the day you create the account (anyone who has experience with this, please comment below). After your two visits a year you can pay $27 per person to enter a participating club.
Now, you actually need to enroll in the program. Just showing your card at the lounge will not do much. To do this go to www.loungeclub.com/inkcard. Enter invitation code “CHASEINK” and click Activate. Click the “Join Now” tab at the top of the page and then the “Enroll” button mid-way down. Enter your information and create a username/password for yourself. You will then receive an email with your membership email. My confirmation email ended up in my spam folder, so make sure to check there as well if it doesn’t arrive.
You will have access to over 350 airport lounges worldwide. On the Lounge Club site you can search lounges in the airport location you are in. It will give you all details you need, such as location within the airport, hours, any other conditions, and lounge facilities.
