Heathrow Rewards is giving away two one-year passes to ALL of the Plaza Premium lounges in the airport.

Most importantly, because you cannot get access via Lounge Club or Priority Pass, is the new Plaza Premium lounge in Terminal 5.   You will also be able to get into their other facilities – T2 departures, T2 arrivals, T3 arrivals, T4 departures and T4 arrivals.

The winner will get unlimited visits until 31st March 2019.  Unfortunately no guests are allowed.

You can enter via this page of the Heathrow Rewards website (log-in required).  The closing date is the end of March.

PS.  Remember that you CAN access the Terminal 5 Plaza Premium lounge with an American Express Platinum charge card, even though it is not in Priority Pass.  Simply show your card at the entrance.  You can also bring in a guest.

Getting airport lounge access via a UK credit card

As a reminder, here are the three options to get FREE airport lounge access via a credit or charge card:

The Platinum Card from American Express

Two free Priority Pass cards (one for you, one for your supplementary Platinum cardholder, each admitting two – so a family of four gets in free) giving access to every lounge in the Priority Pass network – search it here.  You also get access to Plaza Premium, Delta and Eurostar lounges.  Our American Express Platinum review is here.

American Express Preferred Rewards Gold

You get a Lounge Club card loaded with two free visits to any Lounge Club network lounge – see the list here.  The list is slightly shorter than the Priority Pass list, but not by much.  Additional visits are charged at £20 per person.  You get two more free visits for every year you keep the card.  No annual fee in Year 1.  Full details are in our American Express Preferred Rewards Gold review here.

HSBC Premier World Elite Mastercard

You get a free LoungeKey card allowing you access to any property in the LoungeKey network.  Guests are charged at £20 although regular travellers will find it cheaper to pay £60 for a supplementary credit card (adults only, of course).  The card has an annual fee of £195 and there are strict financial requirements to become a HSBC Premier customer.  Full details are in my HSBC Premier World Elite Mastercard review.
