Those United day passes can't get you in Star Alliance Lounges internationally. For those who fly Stay Alliance knows that non US based lounges are the best. I.e. Turkey airline CIP lounge, SK lounges, TG lounges, etc. are unbelievable. Rain showers, massages, etc.
IF you are a Star Alliance flyer, what does Amex Plat gives you that United Club card doesnt?
Remember, United Club gets you in over 900+ lounges worldwide PLUS free guest!
Amex Plat = Priority pass SELECT (no united lounges) so less than 600 lounges, and you have to pay $27 to get your guests in, how bad does that look when you pay for your guest to go in when you already pay $450 for a card.
I actually have the Amex Plat, but I can't justify it anymore because I'm a Star Alliance flyer. However, for the non *A flyer, the Amex Plat is still an awesome deal!
But like I previously said, If *A members have *Gold, the Amex Plat is better because you get both Priority pass Select and free *A lounges. Of course if you don't wanna pay anything, just stick with the *A lounges and not pay for the Amex Plat.
