Groupon is offering extremely discounted day passes to select Delta Sky Clubs:
- For $25, you get a one-visit pass (a $50 value)
- For $89, you get a five-pass punch card (a $250 value) –> $17.80 per pass!
These passes expire April 30, 2012, so you have half a year to use them. You may purchase up to 3 per person, but as many as you desire as gifts for others. The passes are not valid until October 30, 2011, so if you plan on using them for travel this week, do not purchase this deal. Also, this deal lasts until Friday October 28, or until sold-out. Like many other good, national Groupon deals I have seen, my assumption is that this one will sell out quickly — do not hesitate.
The best part of this deal is that these passes can be used when traveling same day on any airline, you do not need to be flying Delta to use the Delta Sky Club Lounge with these passes.
Unfortunately one-day passes are only accepted at select locations (click here to view specific terminal location), including: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago O’Hare, Cincinnati, Dallas, Detroit, Ft. Lauderdale, Honolulu, Indianapolis, Jackson, Los Angeles, Manila (Philippines), Memphis, Miami, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Nashville, Newark, New Orleans, New York JFK, New York LGA, Orlando, Philadelphia, Portland, Raleigh-Durham, Salt Lake City, San Diego, Santiago (Chile), Sao Paulo (Brazil), Seattle/Tacoma, Tampa, Tokyo (Japan – Narita), Washington, DC, West Palm Beach
Update #1: After writing this post, I read on View from the Wing that United is selling access to their club lounge to walk-ins for $19. However, it is not clear how long this will last and if all club lounges are participating. Additionally, it does not state if you can be flying any airline, or if it is limited to just United passengers.
Update #2: A reader commented letting me know that with the Delta American Express Credit Card, you can purchase one-day Sky Club Lounge access passes at the door for $25.
