Getting Into the Lounge Without Your Membership Card

By  | 

Last week I discovered the day before my next round of flights that I had lost my new United Club Membership Card and wasn’t sure how to gain access to the US Airways Lounge. After taking the complimentary lounge pass I got with my US Airways MasterCard, she’d mentioned that if I just present email proof of membership, that would work.

So this Friday I went armed with a printout of my Welcome email, but fully prepared for whoever was manning the desk this time to tell me it wasn’t sufficient.

It was! I had neglected to hand her my ID or Mileage Plus number with the email proof, but as soon as I did, they entered it in and I was good to go!

So if you do lose your card, get email proof of membership and you should be fine getting into allied lounges in the interim.
