Chase Sapphire Reserve® Priority Pass membership gives you access to over 1,000 airport lounges worldwide. To be specific, it’s a Priority Pass Select membership, which means you and your guests get unlimited free visits. Priority Pass Select airport lounges offer free Wi-Fi, snacks and beverages, along with more comfortable seating and other amenities that vary by lounge. This built-in Sapphire Reserve benefit is a $399-per-year value.
In order to redeem your free Chase Sapphire Reserve Priority Pass membership and start enjoying the lounge benefits, you’ll need to do a one-time “activation” to have your Priority Pass card sent to you. Don’t worry, this won’t cost you any money and is very easy to do.
Here’s how to activate Chase Sapphire Reserve Priority Pass:
- Log into your Chase online account.
- Click on the tab that says “Chase Ultimate Rewards.”
- Click on “Card Benefits.”
- Find “Airport Lounge Access” and click “Activate Now” at the bottom.
Follow those steps, and you’ll get membership cards for you and any authorized users on your Sapphire Reserve account within 2-3 weeks by mail. Once you have your Priority Pass membership card, you’ll need to show it, along with a same-day boarding pass, to get into a Priority Pass lounge.
You may also be able to bring guests traveling with you. There’s no limit set by Priority Pass, but individual lounges have the right to make their own rules. Authorized users have their own memberships and aren’t considered guests.
