    For what it's worth, anybody holding any Santander plastic has access to a new "Sala VIP" above the On Time Café in front of gates 24-27. I don't know if ANY Santander entity will work or if it has to be Santander Chile (though only Santander Rio really looks different), but it could be worth a try. 20% off food and drink if you pay with a Santander card, even debit. I've asked for more details but haven't received any yet (guests, etc.).

    I'm trying it out for the first time this Friday evening, I'll let y'all know if it's anything good (or worth switching banks over!). Here's the body of the email:

    Nuevo VIP Santander, Terminal Nacional Aeropuerto Arturo Merino Benítez,
    ubicado en el 2º PISO de Café On Time, frente a las puertas 24-27.
    • Acceso liberado presentando su Tarjeta de Crédito o Débito (Redcompra)
    Santander.
    • Única vista panorámica del aeropuerto.
    • Confortables y modernos espacios de espera.
    • WI-FI, TV Cable y Cajero Automático.
    • Restaurante, bar y cafetería con un 20% de descuento sobre el total de la
    cuenta, pagando solo con Tarjetas Santander.
    Abierto las 24 horas del día, todos los días del año.
    • Lugar exclusivo para clientes del Banco Santander (excluye Banefe)

    I don't think so, because the PP club (Pacific Lounges - smoking and non) are still there. This is in addition to the PP club.

    OK, then I will try to crash this place with one of my Fancy Banco Santander Credit Cards.... I wonder if they will verify if these are issued in Chile... mine are obviously issued on the Right Side of the Andes..... :cool:

    I think the logos are much the same on both sides of the cordillera, so I wouldn't think you'd have a problem. As I mentioned, it's only Santander in Brazil that I think has a significantly different logo.

    When in the South, the only orientation is to the South, of course, so your reference to Chile is quite correct - the RIGHT side of the Andes!

    Ok, first time here, and the dirt is:

    NOT a typical Sala VIP, but above everything else so a good view.

    Any Santander plastic from ANY Santander in the world is accepted.

    You HAVE to pay with the Santander card.

    Pacific Club is a better alternative for the entry fee of CLP6990 if you plan to drink and eat, though the Santander VIP has better selection of food (it's a restaurant)

    Overall, if you're looking for the "VIP experience" the Pac Club is a better option; Santander VIP is just OK.

    What kind of food does the domestic Pacific Club have? I don't think I've ever been given anything more than a medialuna, some mani, or a few cookies?

    The Pac Lounge nacional had some sandwiches (based on time of day, not always) and the typical sweet stuff. The fumadoes Pac Lounge had maní and booze.

    VERY important distinction - this is just a VIP "area" for an airport restaurant sponsored by the bank, so NADA is free except the WiFi. It's not very nice, either - for the price of some wine and a sandwich I think you're better off paying for the Pac Club (which I ended up doing).
