Update: The giveaway is closed. Congrats to the winners of all 7 passes. (Two more were generously donated in the comments.)

Generous reader Sam has donated five lounge passes that expire in the next few months for me to give away to three lucky readers. I’ve divided them up, so the prizes are:

  • One American Airlines Admirals Club lounge pass that expires 12/31/2013
  • Two American Airlines Admirals Club lounge passes that expire 12/31/2013
  • Two United Club lounge passes that expire 1/31/2014

If you have some upcoming travel–no, we can’t get them to you by Thanksgiving :(–and can use some lounge access to make it smoother, enter to win one of the three prizes by leaving a comment that indicates which prize you want.

Again, your options are:

  • 1 AA pass
  • 2 AA passes
  • 2 United passes

Here are the Admirals Club locations and United Club locations to check whether you’ll be able to use a pass on your next trip.

I’ll pick a winner for each prize early Wednesday morning, email the winners, and get the winners’ addresses to Sam.

If you don’t win, you can always get lounge access worldwide with The Platinum Card® from American Express. (For more info on the lounge-access benefit, the $500 in statement credits in the first 12 months, and the card’s other benefits, see Get the Most out of Your American Express Platinum Card.
