    Was going to cancel my card before my annual fee posts. Will that also cancel my club membership that extends a bit after? I'm thinking yes so I'm going to plan some international jaunts prior to this.

    A good question that I suspect that someone at United can respond to. I'd like to think that, since you don't use your United credit card to access the United lounges, but rather use your United Club membership card (that was sent to you separately), the date on the Club card is what matters.

    Your UC membership will be good up to the expiration date printed on your membership card even if you cancel the UC visa card before that date. The membership simply won't be renewed when the time comes if you'd canceled the UC card.

    My card has an expiration date of Sept 30, 2014. I got it via the Club Visa, which renews in May (or in my case, won't renew).

    On united.com, on the My Account page I see the same Sept 30 date under travel options as a non-auto-renewing subscription to United Club. But, under Travel Bank it shows that I am a united club member since 5/2x/2013 (actually, should be 2012) and that my membership expires 5/2x/2014.

    Will be interesting to see whether they accept the card for an extra three months. Don't they swipe it?

    They will go by the expiration date on your current membership card and not with what is under Travel Bank, which even has incorrect info about when you became a member...
