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:
- Winners will be selected on December 29th, 2014 at 11:59PM EST and notified by December 30th.
