Keep reading to find out how you can win a $200 Visa gift card courtesy of LoungeBuddy.
LoungeBuddy is an innovative app that — as the name suggests — is all about the airport lounge experience. It’s location based so can automatically tell which airport you’re at, and will show you the lounges nearby, along with their amenities, hours, ways to gain access, and user generated reviews.
If you load your preferences such as amenities you’re looking for and lounge memberships/status/tickets you hold, it will even automatically recommend a lounge for you. While I know most of the lounges I have access to in my everyday travels, I do sometimes find myself looking up lounges at airports I haven’t visited yet, and this app is great for that.
LoungeBuddy is launching their Android app today, and to celebrate they’re running a giveaway in conjunction with Cathay Pacific:
From May 1st through the 31st, those who use LoungeBuddy can enter to win the “Escape to Hong Kong” sweepstakes, where the prize consists of:
Flight to Hong Kong: Two (2) round-trip premium economy tickets from any Cathay Pacific gateway in North America to Hong Kong.
Airport Lounge Access: Receive full access for you and your guest to the highly-acclaimed Cathay Pacific lounges on your trip. In addition, get a private, guided tour of Cathay Pacific’s lounges at HKG.
Elite Status: After traveling like an Elite, officially become one by being granted Marco Polo Silver status. Forget mileage-runs and mile redemption tricks. The winner will be granted Marco Polo Silver status, which includes perks like access to Cathay Pacific Business Class and Dragonair lounges on eligible trips, priority on waitlists, and priority baggage handling.
Anyway, I have no financial relationship with them and am in no way being compensated for this post, though they did offer to give away a $200 Visa gift card to one lucky reader of mine.
To enter to win, simply leave a comment below letting me know what your favorite airport lounge amenity is, whether it’s common (wifi, showers, etc.) or something unique. You can enter once between now and 11:59PM PT on Saturday, May 3, 2014. At that point I’ll randomly pick a winner, so be sure you’re using a valid email address when leaving a comment.
Thanks to LoungeBuddy for the giveaway, and if you haven’t already checked them out, download their app in the App Store.
For giggles I might as well share a few of my favorite lounge amenities:
I love the complimentary hour-long full body massage you receive as a first class passenger in the Thai Airways First Class Lounge & Spa Bangkok:
I love the shower rooms/cabanas at the Cathay Pacific “The Wing” First Class Lounge Hong Kong:
I also love the “water bar” at the Lufthansa First Class Terminal Frankfurt, with over 40 types of water:
And in terms of simpler amenities, I love the pancake machine in the Alaska Airlines Board Room:
Curious to hear what your favorite lounge amenities are!
