Yeah I got an email saying the unlimited worldwide lounge is changing to 8 times per year. I also don't fly that much so not going to affect me too much. But I do sometimes pop in there for an apple or a couple of bottles of water etc and now i have to bloody keep count how many times I have been during the year because if I accidentally go 9 times they are not going to deny me entry but there will just be a nice $210 charge on my card later. Expensive apple.
I have the priority not really through any conscious choice, but was given it when I bought my apartment and got a mortgage through SCB 10 years ago. I wouldn't pay for it or actively chase it. But it does have some benefits. One is they give me a few thousand Asia miles per month based on my savings/investments/mortage balance etc, another is I have a dedicated guy I can call that gives me 0.003 spread on FX exchange instead of 0.005 that they offer through the FX app on my phone, another is I can save $4 every time I go to starbucks (free upgrades). Not much else I use I think. Oh wait, every time I buy managed funds the front load fee I negotiated down to 1% instead of 3.5% through their online banking platform. Not sure this last one is a priority thing or just something I happened to get after pestering them a few times.
