If you are anything like us, you often walk right on by the door to an airline lounge and attempt to find a seat near an outlet somewhere by your gate. Airline lounges aren’t particularly cheap, and if you aren’t a member or have access through a credit card or otherwise, one day passes typically run about $50.

If you are popular enough, however, you may be able to receive a one day pass to an American Airlines Admirals Lounge. The airline has joined forces with social media influence measuring site Klout, giving highly ranked users a reward. Users with a Klout score higher than 55 automatically receive a one day pass to the Admirals Club, while those less popular users are entered for a chance to win a one day pass. One winner will also win an annual membership to the Admirals Club, which currently sells for $500.

This promotion is similar to a Klout Perk offered by Cathay Pacific at San Francisco, where users with a ranking of 40 or higher gain access to their lounge.

So, are you popular enough to gain free entry to the Admirals Club? Sign up and find out! Don’t worry, we’ll still talk to you if you aren’t popular.
