Buying a airport lounge membership just got a tiny bit more cost-effective with this week’s offer from US Airways. The carrier has put up a discount valid through 18 November 2012 which will waive the $50 initiation fee and discount the annual fee. A one year membership is only $400 rather than the normal $500 for a Dividend Miles member without elite status. In addition, joining during this promo period will earn members 5,000 Preferred Qualifying Miles towards elite status. The promo code for these benefits is 5KPQM.
While not the most generous offer US has had for their lounge membership it is the one available this year. And it isn’t completely horrible, though still more than I’d generally pay for a lounge membership.
