Several Chase cards now come with Platinum status from off-airport parking provider The Parking Spot, along with enough points for a free day and 20% off of your first booking.

According to MilesTalk, eligible cards include the British Airways, Iberia, and Aer Lingus co-brands, the Chase Sapphire family (legacy Sapphire, Preferred, Reserve, and the J.P. Morgan Reserve) and legacy cards (but not current product offerings) with Southwest and United.

I expect this is largely The Parking Spot paying Chase to market to its customers. Since most people aren’t going to do off-airport parking on a one day trip, one free day is just a discount on a bill for a longer parking stay. And 20% off is a simple way to get discount but discounts abound. This comes just weeks after Chase added Peleton benefits to its Sapphire cards.

  1. Hmmm…I have had a Chase Sapphire Reserve card ever since it was launched and I have a Parking Spot account I use regularly at CLT. But I can’t seem to link the accounts. When I enter my e-mail address on the launch page, I receive the following error message, “The offer you are attempting to access is not available.” Anyone else having this problem? Any suggestions? (I’ve already sent a request via the Parking Spot’s “Help and Support” widget and will post any response I receive.)

  2. LOL, if you fly from LAX, you do park off-airport for a 1 day trip. In-airport parking is $40 and half the parking lots are unavailable for the people mover construction.

  3. Big deal! I live in Charlotte and the daily garage is $10 a day. No way am I parking off airport to save a few dollars a day.

    Have the CSR but will never use this benefit.

  4. I also use the Parking Spot at CLT. I have my employer discount and AAA already linked. I wonder if there is a limit to how many accounts you have linked.

  5. @Jim F. Same issue here. I have 3 of the eligible cards and have had a Parking Spot account since the week it opened in CLT. Got the same message.

    @AC: There actually can be quite a difference between CLT Daily and Parking Spot, especially for longer trips. The Parking Spot often offers discounts, promos, and free nights; many times I’ve parked for $5 per day or less and have accumulated about 5-10 free nights per year. That really adds up when you have quite a few trips lasting 5-10 days each as I do. And it’s a world of difference better than the similarly priced long-term parking at CLT: designated space , reserved spot in advance, track everything in an app, account statements available online for expense reports, shuttle comes directly to your car, free bottles of water, friendly employees, and the short ride to the terminal is just as fast as it is for the long-term bus since their property is immediately adjacent to the airport. I’ve tried both many times; Parking Spot is superior in every respect.

  6. I linked my accounts yesterday. Used to be at LGA, JFK and EWR but now down to just EWR so its a little less useful. But offsite is usually cheaper than onsite and with all the construction its easier to do offsite vs dragging your bags around those large airports so when we can start to normally travel again I’ll use the benefit – why not. I logged into their site and it is showing I am a Platinum member now for the Parking Spot.

  7. You have to click through the email Chase sent in order to successfully sign up and have your account reflect Platinum. It looks to be a unique link. It was buried near the bottom of an email I received on 11/12 with the subject: “Enrollment pending: Joshua, your card is eligible for these deals from Chase”.
