Getting Your Priority Pass for Airport Lounges with Chase Sapphire Reserve Credit Card

One of the perks of the popular Chase Sapphire Reserve credit card is a Priority Pass Select membership. This membership gives you unlimited access to participating airport lounges plus you are able to bring your guests with you as well! There is no fee for you or your guests at these lounges, although the individual lounge is able to limit the number of guests you bring in.

While this is a nice perk to have in your back pocket, it is important to know how you actually get access to the participating lounges. I have a few friends that have just showed up to the lounge, presented their Chase Sapphire Reserve card, and assumed they’d be let right in. Unfortunately, that is not the case! Once you are approved for the Chase Sapphire Reserve card, you need to manually request your Priority Pass Select pass. The card is not automatically sent to you in the mail and you must physically present the card at a participating airport lounge.

To request your Priority Pass Select card…

  • Log into your Chase account online and find the “Card Benefits” link. In the old site, click on “Go to Ultimate Rewards” first –> “Use Points” –> “Card Benefits”. In the new site, click on “Things you can do” –> “Card Benefits”

  • In the “Airport Lounge Access” benefit description, click “Activate now.”

Your Priority Pass Select membership with then be activated! You’ll probably receive the card in the mail within a week or so.

Things to know about Priority Pass Select membership…

There are approximately 1,000+ airport lounges where you can gain access with this membership card. You can search for all the participating lounges here. Unfortunately, they are not present in every terminal in every airport. On the Priority Pass site, you’ll be able to access terminal locations, hours, and any restrictions. For example, at Boston Logan Airport, the Air France lounge allows Priority Pass members, but you are limited to a 3 hour stay. I am not sure if that is actually enforced, but it is good to find out what lounges are accessible to you during your trip.

  1. This was covered extensively already by other bloggers last summer – is there a reason why you’re regurgitating this information now?

      • That’s a bit cocky to assume that your readers do not read any of the other travel blogs. Do you honestly believe that to be the case?

        Will tomorrow’s article be announcing the Chase Sapphire Reserve card’s perks? LOL

          • ^^^^THIS!^^^^

            I love your blog, and yes, I read some of the same things here that are on other blogs. How can you not report about a card that is this great! I honestly do not understand why there are so many idiots that feel the need to comment when they have absolutely nothing to offer. Maybe Linda would like to tell all of the cable news stations that she only wants to hear a news story on one of them, not all of them.

            ***Rolls eyes***

          • Linda Olsen if you do not find information posted on this site useful please get lost and stop attacking others who provide helpful info. Most of us read blogs from various sites. Have you gotten nothing better to do. How sad.
