I hold an SBI prime card for 2 years. Priority pass which came with it has expired now.
Now SBI claims that this feature of the card is only for 2 years and now membership is payable and I have to contact priority pass to get it renewed.
I haven’t been able to find this 2 year in terms and conditions on sbicard website. But I got the same response even from the nodal officer desk.

Has anybody experienced that?

So after 2 years no lounge access on this card.
Is it mentioned somewhere bro?

Edit: Finally I got the details :

https://www.sbicard.com/en/faq/complimentary-pr...

When can I apply? Can I apply for the membership multiple times?

You can apply for Priority Pass membership anytime during the validity of your credit card. Priority Pass membership worth USD99 is given complimentary only once and it is valid for 2 years.

Useless people. They should have put this information on the card features page.

yes SBI priority pass is only valid for 2 years compared to HDFC which issues it for 3 years and for yes bank PP is issued with 5 years validity.

But does other banks renew PP cards or not?
SBI says its free only for 2 years. You have to directly pay PP to renew it.

they haven’t mentioned on SBI prime cc details webpage or might be hidden beautifully that I completely missed it.

Is this case with Yesbank PP?

Priority pass is only needed for lounge access outside India. In India you can use your card to get access. So you should get priority pass issued only before international tour as it comes with 1-2 years validity.
