As I mentioned last week, I got a new Business Platinum Card® from American Express OPEN and today I already received my Priority Pass membership card in the mail. This is great news because now I have another way to access Priority Pass lounges including the best happy hour lounge in Atlanta, The Club At ATL, in Concourse F of the International Terminal. See another review here of The Club At ATL.

Bottom Line

You can gain access to Priority Pass Select for free by being a cardholder of The Platinum Card® from American Express or The Business Platinum Card® from American Express OPEN. Remember that you need to ask Amex to register you for Priority Pass after you receive your Amex card. My card just came which is great because now I have access to over 700 airport VIP lounges worldwide! This is another great benefit of being an Amex platinum cardholder!

  1. This benefit does not apply to American Express Platinum members for some countries, such as Brazil. Even paying the same annual fee as in USA, we are not allowed to enjoy this and other benefits.

    I’m very disappointed with American Express regarding this.

  2. True, Marcos. Not only that, but we also don’t get the 40,000 bonus points for becoming a member. Seems very unfair and why not “cheap”. After all R$1200.00 for an annual fee should entitle us, card holders, to a few exta benefits. The card only covers CDW, on car rentals, outside of Brazil. Also, when you try to book a hotel, car rental of flight on their site, the price is consistently and absurdly higher than traditional sites. It has saddly come to a point where there really isn’t much difference between the benefits offered by the Gold and the Platinum cards. It has become almost a matter of status, only. Status, I must add, which is hardly ever recognized in Brazil where 95% of the time I am asked: “Credit or debit?”, an allusion to the general ignorance.
