The social rating site partners with the airline company to give their users real-world perks.
Users of social rating tool Klout will be glad to know that they can use their Klout scores to actually score some real perks such as VIP access to the American Airlines Admiral Clubs even if they’re not a passenger of the airline for that day.
Klout users with a score of over 55 will have access to nearly 40 American Airlines Admiral Club lounges in worldwide locations including London, Tokyo, New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.
To avail oneself of the perk, Klout users will need to go to a page on the American Airlines website and sync their Klout account. Users with a score above 55 will gain a free one-day pass to the Admiral Club. Those whose scores don’t quite make it get to enter a drawing for free entry to the VIP lounge. One winner will win free access to the exclusive club for a whole year.
This new partnership with the airlines is part of Klout’s perks program. Klout has already partnered with other brands and companies such as Nike, Sony, Disney, Microsoft, Audi, Gilt, Cirque du Soleil, and many others to bring real-world perks to its users.
