Giveaway: Win One of Ten $100 LoungeBuddy Credits

The Flight Deal Team flies mostly oneworld carriers so we know which lounges to use at oneworld hubs in London, Hong Kong, Dallas, JFK, Los Angeles and Tokyo. However, when we are visiting non-oneworld hubs, LoungeBuddy is our go-to app to find which lounge we have access to. For example, when we were transiting through Portland earlier this month, LoungeBuddy was able to tell which Priority Pass lounge we’re able to use – the Alaska Boardroom. The ability to get a drink, get work done and get out of the cacophony of the airport terminal are huge for us.

Last week, LoungeBuddy introduced new functionality allowing iPhone and iPad users to buy instant lounge access at 7 airports in the United States (Anchorage, Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Portland and Seattle) and 19 airports in the United Kingdom with more to come. Not only will the app tell you all the amenities and access methods, you will be able to buy access from participating lounges directly from the app.


At the moment, instant in-app lounge purchase is only available for iPhone and iPad users. LoungeBuddy plans on introducing this feature to their Android app in the future. To help LoungeBuddy promote this new functionality, we are giving away TEN $100 LoungeBuddy credits that you can use to buy lounge access at participating lounges. In addition, everyone is a winner by just entering “tfdentry” in the app to get $10 free credit toward their first lounge visit. Please note that we are not being compensated. We simply just think LoungeBuddy is a nice travel app to have.

There are two ways to enter the TEN $100 LoungeBuddy credit giveaway:

For iPhone and iPad users:

  • Step 1: Download the LoungeBuddy app for iPhone or iPad. Unfortunately, while the LoungeBuddy app is available for Android, the Android version does not yet let you purchase day passes.
  • Step 2: After installing LoungeBuddy, make sure you add an email address to your profile; otherwise we can’t contact you if you win!
  • Step 3: In the app, navigate to the Settings screen, tap the ‘Payment’ tab, and enter the code ‘tfdentry’. This will instantly give you $10 worth of free credit towards your first lounge visit when purchasing with LoungeBuddy. You can only receive $10 of free credit once, so if you enter similar contests elsewhere, the code above will not give you another $10 of free credit.
  • Please note: LoungeBuddy’s in-app booking functionality is available on iOS. In order to use LoungeBuddy credit, you must have the most recent version of the LoungeBuddy App installed on your iPhone or iPad. The credit can be used at any of their participating partner locations. See LoungeBuddy’s Promotional Code Policy for terms and conditions.

For Android users:

As mentioned above, the in-app purchase of day passes is not yet available for Android users. However, you still can enter this giveaway. Simply enter your email address at the LoungeBuddy giveaway page. Just a caveat on this – the winning credit code will work only on our iOS app. If you are an Android user and you win, you can choose to gift the credit to a friend or family member that has an iOS device.

Terms of the Giveaway:

  • Enter before December 28th, 2014 at 11:59PM EST simply by:
    • 1) downloading the LoungeBuddy app for iPhone or iPad and entering a valid email address in your profile; use code “tfdentry” on the Payment” tab on the Settings screen or;
    • 2) if you are an Android user, enter your email address at the LoungeBuddy giveaway page.
  • Winners will be selected on December 29th, 2014 at 11:59PM EST and notified by December 30th.

    Now I understand why LoungeBuddy made some bad design choices in recent releases, such as adding too much white space at the top, making the font smaller and smaller, and removing the sort of having ‘free’ lounges (lounges which I have access to) at the top for easier access. They wanted to make the lounges that they are selling more prominent, and maybe look like the only option available at that particular airport.

    I guess that is brilliant on their part, but it is too bad that the app is decidedly less useful for many of us. It is too bad that they did not do something less obtrusive like banner ads to turn a profit. Yes, I actually said banner ads would be preferable if I could get the old layout and sort choices back.

    Bill, thanks so much for your comments and being a long time LoungeBuddy member!

    Over the past 15 months, LoungeBuddy has worked hard grow our lounge base to cover over 600 global airports and expand our reach to make our product available to all travelers worldwide at no cost. We’ve continued to update the product to include requested features such as supporting international credit cards that provide lounge access, distance and currency localization, and the ability to save trips, along with support for Concur.

    In addition, we’ve worked hard to ensure that the product is not filled with annoying banner ads while still offering an ever growing list of features. We’re excited to be entering a new stage in LoungeBuddy’s history making it possible for all travelers to be able to instantly access an airport oasis in a few simple taps. To make this functionality available, we spent a great deal of time adjusting the UI and holding focus groups throughout the process to create the best possible product for all travelers.

    We are committed to continually improving the product and appreciate your feedback as well as the feedback from the hundreds of thousands of other loyal LoungeBuddy members.

    You mentioned that the font continues to get smaller. If you go into your Apple Settings, you can actually increase the font size for our App as well as other apps that support this functionality. If you have any other questions or comments, don’t hesitate to reach out to us directly at support loungebuddy com.
