[Updated to notate changed terms - 04-Dec-12] Introduction The Skyguide Executive Privilege Club is a good way for those who fly less frequently to get airport lounge access without paying for lounge memberships or expensive credit cards. For as little as $19.99 per year, Skyguide Club will reimburse you for up to 12 airport club/lounge day passes. At $50 each, that's $600 of reimbursements for less than $20! The following information is from my personal experiences signing up, getting reimbursed, calling to resolve issues, and canceling memberships. As they say, YMMV. How Does It Work? First, you sign up for an annual membership using one of the links below. Then, you pay for day passes at the airport lounge of your choice (or online ahead of time) and submit the receipts to SkyGuide Club via certified mail. Reimbursement checks usually arrive in about a month. Why Is This a Good Deal? It works for many domestic and international lounges including those operated by United, AA, Alaska Airlines, Aeromexico, Air Canada, Virgin America, Delta, US Airways, and Servisair (non-airline). A number of the covered lounges are not covered by credit card programs or Priority Pass. You don't need to be flying on the airline that operates the lounge, so you can pick your favorite lounge at the airport. If you run into trouble, they have telephone customer service with nice agents. They also provide reimbursement of health club passes (12 per year at $25)! What's The Catch? Only 12 reimbursements per year. Limited to one per month as of January 1, 2013. Some signup links will auto-renew you at higher rate after your first year (to get around this, you can turn off auto-renewal online). The lounge you visit may need to be on their list, available here (can someone confirm if "unlisted" lounges are still eligible?): http://www.skyguideclub.com/?Obj=LoungeAndGym You must send your receipts individually via certified mail. The receipts/passes must be in your name -- no paying for family members or friends. They sell your personal information: http://lists.the-dma.org/market?page=research/datacard&id=214431, http://lists.the-dma.org/market?page=research/datacard&id=312300 How Do I Sign Up? The sign up links below are from various sources, and may include extra "perks" such as companion passes or restaurant.com gift certificates. I have verified the links personally (or through family/friends), and they should work even if they say they are expired. $19.99 per year with no auto-renew (may take 1-2 weeks for enrollment to go through): https://subscription.timeinc.com/storefront/site/cy-fb0811.html?link=1005217 $2.99 for the first two months, $29.95 for the first year, auto-renew at $89.95 (may not be working): https://secure.customersvc.com/servlet/Show?WESPAGE=OrderPages/amex/cy/1110/order_1501.jsp What are the Official Terms? See the SkyGuide site: http://www.skyguideclub.com/?Obj=LoungeAndGym What's an Airport Lounge/Club? Many airlines have private clubs, usually located in the "hub" airports they serve. They usually serve basic snacks and complimentary alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, along with access to a private service desk to resolve flight issues. Some offer showers. Be aware that not all clubs/lounges offer day passes, especially those operated by non-US airlines.

Remember/bookmark this URL: https://secure.customersvc.com/servlet/Show?WESPAGE=am/home.jsp&MSRSMAG=CY . If you sign up using one of the customersvc.com links above, you can go to this URL immediately after registering (in the same browser window) and it will show you your member number and other account information. There may be a slight delay if you use one of the timeinc.com links. This URL can also be used to cancel your membership (for a refund) or stop auto-renewal. Use the "cancel" link for both. If you use a customersvc.com signup link, your membership will start immediately. You can even sign up when you're at the entrance to the lounge! There may be a delay if you use a timeinc.com link. Buy your passes online ahead of your trip if you don't want the hassle at the lounge entrance. Be sure to save a printed copy so you can send it in. Because your membership isn't tied to any specific credit card, you can use day pass purchases to meet minimum spend requirements across multiple cards or accumulate points/miles. Please don't abuse the program or commit fraud by purchasing passes for others or reselling passes. You'll just ruin it for everyone else. What if Something Goes Wrong? If you don't send in a proper dated receipt that says "day pass" or "one time pass" on it, you probably won't be reimbursed (or hear anything back, for that matter). You can call them and try to fight it, but it's likely you'll be turned down. They'll play by the rules if you play by the rules. If you decide you want to cancel, even mid-term, they'll send you a full refund. In my experience, it was really simple to cancel online, and the refund check arrived quickly. There are reports of people sending receipts through normal (non-certified) mail, and they have been "lost". Others report that using standard USPS mail isn't a problem. Keep copies of your paperwork, and be prepared to call if your request is "lost". Who Are You? I'm just a random guy. I've been a member of Skyguide Club off-and-on for a few years, and most of my family/friends are also members. The information above is from my experiences signing up, getting reimbursed, calling to resolve issues, and canceling memberships. As they say, YMMV. For all I know, all of the information posted above is wrong. Where Can I Find More Reviews?

If anyone has received the $29.99 membership lately, please post. As of January, 2013, pass reimbursement will be limited to one per calendar month. This actually matches the terms and conditions from a couple of years ago, but is quite a bit more restrictive than the "12 per month" terms used in 2012.
