Depends on how much you drink :!: and eat vs. the prices outside the lounge. Not to mention hassle free banda ancha access and other amenities and a more tranquil preflight experience. The agents (assuming you are flying on the metal of the airline lounge you are in) can also work miracles if needed. The $50 AA one (buy it online and there is no IVA) is quite worth it for me for the previous reasons at SCL and the coffee and relaxation at DFW (included in the one-day pass SCL purchase) before boarding the flight to LAX.
