Priority Pass members have a new restaurant and tap house to check out at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport—Bar Symon, where comfort food is on the menu. Members can now get a $28 credit for food and beverages, which in this restaurant might mean chowing down on everything from Pierogi and Kielbasa to Lola fries and burgers.
How does the credit work? Frist things first, you have to be a Priority Pass member. You can either pay for a membership or get a credit card, like Chase Sapphire Reserve or the American Express Platinum card, which offers it as part of their benefits package.
As long as you’re a member, you get $28 off your bill. If it goes over that amount, you owe the difference. What about bringing a guest along? You can also get a credit for one guest as long as you register them ahead of time. In this case, they will get a credit for $56.
Credit cards offering Priority Pass
If you pay to join Priority Pass, which also includes airport lounge access, it will run you anywhere from $99 to $399, depending on the package you get. The less expensive packages don’t include free lounge access. Instead, you’ll be charged a $27 fee per visit.
In the end, going with a credit card that offers Priority Pass as a benefit may be the way to go because it’ll cost you nothing and there are no fees for lounge access.
Some of the credit cards that offer Priority Pass include Chase Sapphire Reserve, the latinum Card from America Express and the Business Platinum card from American Express OPEN.
In addition to getting access to Priority Pass Select lounges, people with the American Express Platinum card also get access to other lounges, including The Centurion Lounge, The International American Express lounges and Delta Sky Club.
They can also earn 60,000 bonus points with a $5,000 spend during the first three months of having the card. Flights booked directly with airlines or through Amex Travel earn five points per dollar.
The Business Platinum card from American Express OPEN also comes with the same lounge access, but small business owners and independent contractors can earn 75,000 points if they can spend a total of $20,000 during the first three months of having the card.
With the Chase Sapphire Reserve, you’ll also get access to Priority Pass Select lounges. Cardholders also earn a 50,000 bonus points with a $4,000 spend over the first three months and triple points when spending on travel and eating out.
