Through December 31, 2012, Alaska Airlines is offering 5,000 bonus miles plus 2,500 bonus miles donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation for any new Board Room membership. The bonus miles will be deposited into the Mileage Plan member’s account before January 31, 2013.
The membership fees are as follows:
Personally I find the American Express Platinum card to be a much better value for lounge access. The card comes with Priority Pass, which gets you free Board Room access. The catch is that it’s only free for one person, while each additional guest is $27. Meanwhile a club membership allows you free guests.
That being said, I don’t even really find visiting the Seattle Board Rooms worthwhile anymore. It’s consistently overcrowded to the point that there aren’t any open seats, so I’ve started just hanging out in the central concourse area, or cutting my arrival at the airport really close.
