Wells Fargo Propel World American Express (airline credit)
I am considering this card and wanted to ask if anyone has experience with their “Up to $100 per year in reimbursements toward incidental airline charges”
The terms seem to indicate it would work for lounge access. I have a couple 3+ hour layovers in Chicago and Miami, and wanted to know if I could just pay for lounge access of my choice (any recommendations?) and if that would be reimbursed. And when paying for lounge access in Chicago, would it apply for the same lounge in Miami, or is it “per entry” not “per day”?
Sorry, never stayed in a loyalty lounge before…
[USER=1876]@Mongolianhippo[/USER], what lounge are you looking at?
I would say that the lounge costs get reimbursed.
I looked up the actual text from the WF website and this is what it says:
[SIZE=2]”Each Wells Fargo Propel World American Express® Card Account will be eligible to receive credit totaling up to $100 per year for airline qualifying charges. Qualifying charges are domestic or international airline transactions (excluding ticket purchases) that are processed by retailers or airlines under the merchant code for American Express in the categories of airlines and air carriers. Wells Fargo does not have the ability to control how a retailer or airline chooses to classify their business and purchases made at retailers or airlines that do not process transactions using these codes for American Express will not qualify for credits. Cardholder is responsible for alerting Wells Fargo within 90 days of the transaction to receive credit for any qualifying charges that did not automatically post to your statement. Certain limitations and restrictions apply; please see the [URL=’https://www.wellsfargo.com/credit-cards/propelworld/terms/#airlinebenefit’]Airline Benefit Addendum[/URL] to Consumer Credit Card Customer Agreement and Disclosure Statement for further details.”[/SIZE]
[SIZE=4]I do not know of lounge passes that allow multiple entries at different locations on the same day.[/SIZE]

The best one with food.
You might be disappointed in domestic US lounges…

Fortunately my expectations are completely blank and waiting to be influenced.
So on my original question, anyone have personal experience with this?
I don’t have any experience with the card, or know anyone who has it (it’s not great for travel rewards for what my circles are interested in), but in reading the T&Cs you should have no problem being reimbursed for airline lounges. 3rd party lounges might be different.
That being said, what the others have said about domestic lounges being spartan is true. American sells one-day passes that should be good at both airports, but you’re going to find cubed cheese, carrots/celery, and maybe a soup.
Alright, thanks guys! I know it’s not the best travel card, but I suspect I’m currently “maxed out” with the major banks, and having a very long history with Wells Fargo, thought I might still get approved for this one.
Update: Just applied online for this card, got the “approved” screen, then got the follow-up email saying it’s actually “pending.” Already off to a great start with Wells Fargo…
My wife just applied for this card yesterday, got “pending,” called today, and they said they recieved FIVE applications from her. Which is ridiculous since I saw her click “submit” once. Already off to a great start with Wells Fargo…
