Sign Up for the Right Credit Card

Get a premium-level charge card that allows you to use an airline’s VIP lounge. Some cards require you to have a same-day ticket on the corresponding airline. Annual elite card fees range from $150 to $450. Examples include the American Express Platinum Card* and the Ameriprise World Elite MasterCard.

Good Strategy For: Charge card users who would benefit from the other business- and travel-related amenities associated with a premium card.
