I wasn’t expecting this, but after a few check-ins I’ve already become Mayor of the Eurostar St. Pancras Lounge on Foursquare. I guess that’s what happens when you commute frequently on the London-Paris route. The only glitch is that … there are actually 5 different venues on Foursquare called Eurostar Lounge Something! I guess I’ll have to remember check-in on all 5.
Now I am obviously trying to become Mayor of the Paris lounge too, but it looks harder, someone else’s already there, but in 2 weeks I am planning to get more check-ins and steal the title.
No, this is not serious.
Update: the location has been removed from Foursquare, most likely there was a duplicate, so I’ve been dumped. But I’m on a good track and should grab a new mayorship soon.
(why am I doing this? To see if anything happens…)
Thank you for your post. I would like to ask you if using the American Express Platinum card still grants me access to the Eurostar lounge? I haven’t travelled for a year, and the last time I did, I managed to get into the Paris lounge by showing my AMEX platinum card. Is this still true? Your advice please. Sang
I think Amex Platinum still works, I can ask directly next time I’m there in a couple of weeks.
