20% Discount on Priority Pass First Year Membership Fee
I visited the Priority Pass website but there was no discount on offer. I did not join immediately and instead went on to surf some other websites. I was surprised to see some Google Ads on those websites that announced this 20% discount. I have given below the Priority Pass link that offers discounted membership but in case this link does not work please follow the same process that I did. Visit Priority Pass website, surf a few of their pages and just leave. Later while visiting some other website you are likely to see a Priority Pass advertisement about the 20% discount. That of course, if you have not disabled tracking by advertisers in your browser. Anyway, this is the link:

Which Membership Level to Choose
I personally believe that the Standard membership of 99 USD is useless because even if you do not have a lounge program membership, an airport lounge may allow you entry at 27 USD. So why pay 99 USD per year to Priority Pass for nothing. Take either the Standard Plus or Prestige membership that come at a first year discounted charges of 199 USD and 319 USD respectively.
Find a Credit Card that Brings You Free Priority Pass
The Citibank Prestige Credit Card is a high value credit card requiring payment of an annual fee but offers Prestige level Priority Pass membership offering unlimited free lounge visits. Some Diners Club card variants also have the same feature. Check with your bank but it is better to avoid the credit cards that just give you the useless Standard Priority Pass membership.
How to Find an Airport Lounge
The easiest way is to download the Priority Pass App on your smartphone. This free App has a country-wise list of airport lounges and also gives details of the facilities at each of the lounges. No login is required to access the Priority Pass App.
