Groupon offering 50% off a Priority Pass lounge card

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

If you have been thinking of purchasing a Priority Pass airport lounge access card, Groupon has a long-running deal.  You will find it here.

It is a little fiddly.  You pay Groupon £6 for a voucher.  

Groupon Priority Pass deal

The voucher entitles you to:

  • 50% discount on Standard Membership (usually £69, pay £20 per visit)
  • 50% discount on Standard Membership with first visit included (price not shown)
  • 25% discount on Standard Plus Membership with ten visits included, £20 thereafter (usually £189)

The discount is clearly not 50% since you are also paying £6 for the voucher.  You will make a saving, however.  This is one way of keeping hold of a Priority Pass if you are cancelling your American Express Platinum charge card, which comes with two free Priority Pass cards.  None of the paid versions of Prority Pass are actually as good as the Amex version, oddly, which gives unlimited free visits for the cardholder and a guest.
