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.

Key Links:

  • Chase Sapphire Reserve: 50,000 Chase Ultimate Reward points after you spend $4,000 on the card within the first three months.

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

i just joined chase sapphire–as a big promo was offered in late 2016/early 2017. i didn’t realize i needed a specific priority pass card–this posting (even though repeated somewhere else?) was exactly what i needed when i needed it. a lot of things change in a few months–so finding one dated early 2017 was perfect. thank you.

Many lounges accept a digital ID, provided by the Priority Pass app (iOS only for now).

I find this article very helpful..we just got the reserve card and my friends are traveling to China and was able to bring friends into many China airport lounges.. one of the attendance told her its subject to your bank if you have to pay for the extra guests she brings in.. I refer this article to her; it should be free of charge as the card membership says.. “you can bring your guests”.. but didn’t specify how many… T he article stated, its the discretion of the lounge to allow # of guests you bring in, but its free.… Read more »

I found the comments thread to be more entertaining than the actual article.
