Sapphire Reserve users can set up a digital priority pass
Airport lounges help you unload, but if you rely on your premium credit card for access, you can Strings attached can complain to you. Forget about bringing your lounge membership card to the airport and you may have to say goodbye to free wifi and kiss goodbye to those free cocktails.
Chase Sapphire Reserve® Cardholders can now avoid that hassle while unloading their wallets at the same time by setting up a Priority Pass digital membership card on their phone. The Chase Sapphire Reserve® already offers a free Priority Pass Select membership, which gives you access to more than 1,000 airport lounges worldwide. However, you have to activate the program separately and until recently you also had to carry the physical card with you to access the lounges.
Register your digital membership at this link. You will need your Priority Pass membership number and the expiration date. Both can be found on your physical card, which you should receive in the mail after registering for the program. If you don’t know your information or can’t find your card, contact a Chase representative.
After entering your card details using the link above, you will need to create a Priority Pass account with an email address and password. Then download the Priority Pass app on your mobile phone and log in with the account you created. You can access your digital membership card in the app by clicking the icon in the top left or the menu button in the top right and selecting “My Digital Card”.
Some quick precautions: The Priority Pass app states that “the majority” of their lounges will accept the digital membership card, but some will require you to show your physical card. If you have multiple Priority Pass memberships, you cannot link them to one login. Instead, the app notes that you need to set up separate accounts and passwords for each membership.
Still if you are one Chase Sapphire Reserve® Cardholders looking for one less thing to remember when rushing to the airport. This new feature could be worth it.
