  1. Great post. Thank you for the easy to read table. Could I make a critical suggestion? Could you make the table in three columns. CREDIT CARD / LOUNGE ACCESS / LOUNGE FEE

    I find when looking at the credit card, and reading the fine print, it often isn’t exactly clear as to how much it costs to use the lounge. What good is it to have access to a lounge if it costs $50 to go in. I find it is a big reason for getting/keeping a credit card. Thanks again.

  2. Hey Matt,

    Just trying to confirm something. Does the Amex platinum & business platinum Priority Pass come with free guest privileges? Over the last 4 years i have been bringing in guests for free, but as of now I cant find anything online confirming this still exists. Thanks

    1. As far as I am concerned, you can still bring a guest. Check out footnote 5 in the AMEX card page.
