    (Rant) Standard Chartered Priority Visa - the last straw Starbucks...

    Limited priority pass and now NO STARBUCKS

    F this

    So the card has been going downhill. Before even Amex cut the priority pass benefit, the SCB Priority card

    1) restricted the priority pass lounge visits to 8 per year and
    2) you had to keep track yourself - WTF who keeps track?!? and
    3) the HK priority pass lounges are now slums.

    and NOW - I go to Starbucks and the upsize your drink order is no longer in effect.

    F this

    Perhaps consider getting your coffee from a slightly less pro-CCP place

    Paxbritannia and jimbo like this.

    I now only use that card to get cheap HKIA car transfers. Otherwise that card stays at home.

    SCB Priority banking product itself is very inferior.

    Yea i just found that out. This card just crossed the border to completely useless.

    Fyi, Starbucks this year teamed up with UnionPay

    I am now able to use my hsbc diamond union pay card for free size upgrades.
