In many cases, airport parking is a mess, too expensive, or otherwise not worth it. But not with The Parking Spot.

At the 21 airports where The Parking Spot operates (see all 21 here; Charlotte, NC, will be #22 and SLC, UT, will be #23 in 2018), leaving your car in safe hands at one of The Parking Spot’s 38 facilities while you travel costs (typically) under $13 a day (based on The Parking Spot’s national average). Check-in and check-out are stress-free by design, and free shuttles run from the facility to the airport 24 hours, seven days a week. And now, The Parking Spot’s rewards program is more robust than it’s ever been.

The Spot Club—The Parking Spot’s frequent parker program—crossed the million-member mark in 2016, allowing loyal guests to earn points toward free parking. The Parking Spot has now introduced a tiered structure that means more perks and savings for its members. The three new tiers are, listed from least to most:

  • Silver
  • Gold
  • Platinum

At least one free parking day is now guaranteed to all tiered members, every year. And it’s free to join. You move from a general Spot Club member to Silver to Gold to Platinum by using the Parking Spot, as with most loyalty programs. Here’s more on the perks that come with membership on each tier:

All members

  • Free reservations (no reservation fee)
  • Ticketless entry and exit to more quickly get on your way
  • One free day of parking in as few as 7 paid days


  • One free day of parking on your Spot Club anniversary date
  • 15% discount on car care services where available


  • One free day of parking on your Spot Club anniversary date
  • 20% discount on car care services where available
  • Priority customer service
  • Ability to use points for one free basic car wash per year


  • One free day of parking on your Spot Club anniversary date
  • 25% discount on car care services where available
  • Premium customer service
  • Premium parking area upgrades
  • Ability to use points for one free basic car wash per year
  • Ability to redeem up to 500 points per year with airline partners

If you don’t take a car to the airport, and/or you don’t leave your car near the airport while you’re gone, well, this is good if not unimportant news. But if you’re the type to see airport parking anywhere in your future, keep in mind that The Parking Spot’s Spot Club is free to join. And as I always say about airline and hotel loyalty programs, you should always sign up (so long as sign-up is free) and take the free points. Points accrue—in this case as your car waits for you to return while you’re away—and points, eventually, mean free stuff.

Happy parking!
