If you have a Chase Ink credit card, you probably already received a letter in your mailbox explaining that Chase is ending the Lounge Club membership for Ink from Chase customers. While any negative changes to a credit card benefit is unfortunate, this is by no means one of the best aspects of the card so I am not really disappointed. In my experience, I actually have yet to even use the yearly lounge access that comes with the card!
I have two different Chase Ink credit cards – a Bold and a Plus. The Bold card I’ve had for quite some time and registered for the Lounge Club membership program awhile back. The lounge club associated with that card is still valid until the expiration date which I believe for me is August. Although Chase Ink is getting rid of this partnership, your card is still valid until the expiration date, so make sure to check it out on the card they sent you at some point over the past year.
For the Plus card, I recently applied and apparently never even enrolled the card in the program. The letter I received for that card told me that I have until April 30, 2015 to enroll my card into the program and will then have an entire year to use the lounge access. I guess it was a good think I forgot to enroll as it extended the expiration date for me a few months. Although, still not sure if I will even use it!
For those that have yet to enroll you card, simply go to www.loungeclub.com/inkcard and use the invitation code chaseink. You will then need to enter your credit card number, but you will not be charged for anything. Ultimately, with the lounge membership card through this partnership program, you are given two complimentary visits and then the credit card on file will be charged for any subsequent visits.
I personally do not find that there are too many convenient lounges to visit for my travel. You can check out all the participating lounges here. You can also learn more about this benefit and some of the FAQs here.
