Credit Cards which offer Free Airport Lounge Access (updated April 19, 2021)

It has been over 2 years since our last update of this post. Quite a few changes were made since then, such as the re-branding of all the Aeroplan c-branded cards with American Express, CIBC and TD. Furthermore, there are some additional options from BMO and RBC. So this post is due for an update!

Keep in mind that post only list cards that offer free lounge access, not cards who provide a Priority Pass membership, but require a fee for each entry.
