Keep reading to find out how you can win a $100 in airport lounge credit 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 adding new functionality to their app, whereby you can directly purchase lounge access from your phone:
For the first time ever, US travelers will now be able to use LoungeBuddy to purchase instant airport lounge access from their iPhone with just a few simple taps.
No memberships, elite statuses or premium seat purchases are required.
Instant lounge bookings will be available in 20 of the busiest airports throughout the world, including major hubs in the United States like Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW), Atlanta (ATL), Seattle (SEA), Philadelphia (PHL) and Los Angeles (LAX). LoungeBuddy will continue to roll this functionality out to more partner locations within the US, Europe, Canada, Asia and Australia.
At present, lounge bookings can be made at seven airports in the US, and over a dozen in the UK using the iPhone version of the app. Functionality will be rolling out to Android users at a later date.
The Alaska Airlines Board Room (and pancakes) can now be accessed through LoungeBuddy
To celebrate, LoungeBuddy is giving all readers $10 in credit using the code “onemileatatime“ — just enter that code in the account section of the app to receive the credit.
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 $100 in credit to two readers of mine. They offered me $100 in credit as well, but I’m throwing that into the pot for one of you guys to claim, so there’s $300 up for grabs!
To enter to win, simply comment using the widget below telling me your favorite airport lounge. You can earn extra entries by visiting the One Mile At A Time or LoungeBuddy Facebook pages, or following either of us on Twitter.
You can enter between now and 11:59PM ET on Saturday, December 20th, 2014. At that point I’ll randomly pick three winners, so be sure you’re using a valid email address and tracking your entries. In order to use LoungeBuddy credit you must have LoungeBuddy on your iPhone and be on iOS7 or later.
Thanks to LoungeBuddy for the giveaway, and if you haven’t already checked them out, download their app in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.
