This past weekend, I happened to have some spare time while in downtown San Francisco waiting for a dinner meeting, so I decided to go to Westfield Shopping Mall at Powell. When I got to the fourth floor, I stopped in my tracks staring at what were signs for an exclusive V.I.P. Club Lounge for Chase United Explorer credit card holders to be opened November 23, 2012!
Earlier this year, I had opened a Chase United Explorer credit card and had subsequently closed and consolidated my older (and discontinued) United MileagePlus Select Visa card in favor of the sign-up 65k United Miles sign-up promo. (That’s more than enough for a roundtrip economy flight from U.S. to Europe or Asia!)
Naturally, I was pretty excited to see a new perk of my Chase United Explorer card which I could actually use without having to fly Star Alliance! (I have found that I really haven’t had a chance to really maximize my numerous airport lounge passes since I typically fly domestic short-hauls with JetBlue or Virgin America.)
I couldn’t find anymore details about the V.I.P. lounge, but I’m definitely looking forward to checking it out when it opens on November 23. (The opening day is the day AFTER Black Friday, by the way. So it sounds like a great opportunity to escape the post-Black Friday shopping madness that Westfield will be consumed in.)
i’ll have more details and a review coming in late November.
