If you have a United Club Card or Presidential Plus Credit Card from Chase, be ready for a small surprise when you next visit a club.

Effective April 1, United stopped offering a $3 discount on premium wine and liquor in United Clubs when you pay with a United Club or Presidential Plus credit card.

That discount has been around for almost 10 years, dating back to the Continental days when the Presidential Plus card was first launched.

It was nice deal, letting you get a glass of decent wines like Stags Leap Artemis for about $12 – which is a good deal outside of home for wine that retails at the store for over $40 a bottle.

Earlier this year, United started offering free prosecco in all of its clubs, for all guests.

And last week it announced its Newark airport hub clubs would finally start renovations this year.

But it looks like with the gives, there has been a take in the form of a lost discount.

This comes after the annual fee on the United Club card was raised for new cardholders to $450 a year, from $395.

Still, United’s wine prices and selections are generally better than what you’ll see at Delta and American’s clubs, where they are often selling wine with the heavy markups you’d see at an airport bar.
