When I wrote about the return of Milepoint’s Premium offer, it was natural to focus on the headline offers — Hilton Gold status, United miles, and even National Car Rental status.
There are a suite of discounts and offers beyond that, they won’t all be useful to everyone but there’s opportunity to get value out of many of them. I use Expertflyer.com for instance, and there’s a 20% discount on a year’s subscription. Similarly there’s a discount on the KVS Tool which I also use extensively in searching flights, availability, awards, seat maps, Visa rules, maximum permitted mileage, minimum connection times and more.
Commenter Gene has an eagle eye for the value of one of those benefits — a free parking day at The Parking Spot.
@Gary — Is the Parking Spot coupon good an unlimited number of times? The T&C say “per visit”, which sounds too good to be true.
When you subscribe to Milepoint Premium you’ll receive access to a coupon for a free parking day. There’s no minimum stay restriction, it is valid even on one day’s parking. And it isn’t a single use code, you should be able to print out the coupon several times or save it on your smart phone.
If I lived next to a Parking Spot I would give up the expensive parking spot I have in my building. Hah.
This is how the Parking Spot describes their off-airport parking:
Our lots are spacious, fully-fenced, well lit, and open 24 hours a day 7 days a week. We offer: friendly shuttles every 5-7 minutes, earn free parking with The Spot Club, luggage assistance, complimentary newspaper & chilled bottled water.
Here’s a list of Parking Spot locations. (The coupon isn’t valid at On-Airport Valet at DFW Airport.)
My favorite one is at Los Angeles International Airport on Sepulveda — right next to the In ‘n Out Burger at the edge of a runway where you can sit outside and watch planes land. Savvy frequent flyers with long LAX layovers have been known to take the Parking Spot bus to the Sepulveda location as a way of getting to and from In ‘n Out for free.
