The Parking Spot Relaunches the Spot Club Rewards Program
The simplified rewards program offers new benefits, better rewards, and elevated status levels
CHICAGO (February 21, 2020) – The Parking Spot, the nation’s leader in airport parking with 37 locations at 22 major airports, announced today that it has revamped its travel rewards program, the Spot Club. With over one million members, the Spot Club allows travelers to earn free days of parking, discounts on car care services, and premium parking options.
The 2020 updates simplify the program for guests so they can engage more easily and earn more rewards. New benefits include guaranteed spaces for Platinum members, bonus points for members with elite status, and changing the qualifying criteria from stays to days.
“By making these improvements, we are putting customer feedback into action and demonstrating our continued commitment to providing each guest the best possible experience,” said Lauren Rocklin, SVP of Marketing at The Parking Spot. “The new Spot Club will not only offer a simplified experience to our loyal guests, but also an opportunity for new customers to get the most out of their travel experience.”
Keeping track of rewards and points will be easier than ever with a new member dashboard that tracks progress towards elite status, as well as displays points and free days earned. Once those points build up, customers can take advantage of the new locked-in award rates, which take the guesswork out of how many points it takes to earn a free day of parking.
To further simplify and enhance the program, the elite program now offers two levels of status instead of three – Gold and Platinum. All members who previously had Silver status were automatically elevated to Gold status for the 2020 program year.
