You know those fancy airport lounges that you have to be either a celebrity, or millionaire to get in to? Well, there are other ways for the average joe, like me, to get into those exclusive clubs, and to paraphrase Groucho Marx... that's exactly where I need to be! Here are three ways:
(A) Pay the hefty price of hundreds of dollars per year, in addition to having enough frequent flier miles to qualify.
(B) Sneak in, pretending to be someone important and 'how dare the lady at the desk not remember him coming through an hour ago'. Yes, Mr. you-know-who-you-are. I am calling YOU out!
(C) Consdier taking out a platinum American Express card. Yes, they too have a yearly fee, but if you need one of those big credit cards (they begin limits at $25K), then you may as well make your money work for you. Those cards (the PLATINUM ONLY) are universally accepted at the airports many clubs. Once you are inside, free food, beverages and wifi await.
