Members of the United Club lounges are getting notices from United telling them the annual membership fee will increase starting in 2013. Right now it costs up to $475 per year (less if you are an elite Premier level flyer), or $395 if you take the United MileagePlus Club credit card, which confers full membership.
We don’t think the credit card fee will be going up, but…how high could the regular membership fee go?
$500 or more? Maybe, at least for ‘general’ members of MileagePlus. Premiers will keep their discounts, but at more expensive prices (Premier 1K members today pay just $375).
So to lock in current pricing you have two options…
Either way, not sure we expect any changes to the amenities of the clubs, or even the level of crowding with the new higher fee. Though we hear a number of them will be getting renovated over the next few years, so perhaps we’re chipping in for that…
