The Parking Spot Review and Giveaway: Win One Week of Free Airport Parking!

As some of you know, I recently traveled to Atlanta for a blogging conference. Well, during my trip I had an opportunity to try out The Parking Spot at Denver International Airport and I'm excited to be able to share that experience with you in this review!

Pretty much every time I travel to the airport or even have to drop someone off at the airport I get sick to my stomach. I don't know what it is, but I suspect some sort of travel anxiety or something. Who knows! :) Whatever it is, I actually welcomed the opportunity to try parking "off site" during this trip.

My flight left super early, so I was a little nervous about finding the place and if they would be up and running at the crack of dawn. Well, I was pleased to find out that not only were they up and running, but there was even a real person waiting to greet me at the entrance. She helped me to get checked in (which was super simple) and directed me where to park. By the time I got out of my car there was already a shuttle waiting for me, so I thought that was pretty awesome. The driver than made sure to write where I was parked on a little card that he gave me and of we went to the airport.

Once I returned from my trip it was also a very easy process. Their shuttles are bright yellow with big black spots, so they are pretty difficult to miss. Once I got in the shuttle the driver asked me for the card that I was provided with when I arrived and before I knew it he was dropping me off right in front of my car! The whole process was very nice and actually did help to reduce some of my travel anxiety.

I actually didn't know this but I guess The Parking Spot is the nation's largest near-airport parking operator. They have parking and shuttle service at 22 airports around the country in distinctive spotted shuttles. The Parking Spot Network includes Parking Spot branded facilities at Atlanta Hartsfield, Austin Bergstrom, Buffalo - Niagara, Dallas Fort Worth, Dallas Love Field, Denver International, Houston Hobby, Houston George Bush Intercontinental, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Memphis, Nashville, Newark, New York JFK, Oklahoma City Will Rogers, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix Sky Harbor, Pittsburgh, Port Columbus, and Lambert -St. Louis. Wowie...that is quite the list! :)

The Parking Spot is also now offering travelers up to 25 percent off parking as part of its "More Spots, More Savings" national promotion. They also have a generous loyalty program called The Spot Club that earns travelers a free day after just seven days of paid parking.

The Parking Spot has also provided me with an exclusive giveaway opportunity to share with all of you awesome Bargain Blessings readers! I will be giving away one week of FREE parking at a Parking Spot lot in your area!

We usually drive and do off-airport parking, and we’ve been using The Parking Spot since we moved here 2.5 years ago! We’re even “The Spot Club” members!

We have parked in the Pikes Peak lot previously, but most of the time we just have someone take us to the airport. It’s a lot less loading and unloading that way. Not sure what we’re doing this year. It’s our first time flying with our baby!

We live so far that we always pay to park, and it gets expensive! Not to mention traveling with multiple carseats is always an adventure;). So I hope to win!!

We usually drive to the airport and shuttle from a far away lot to the terminals!

If we are traveling as a family (which is very infrequent sadly!) out of DIA we have used off-site parking. Since my last three trips home have been for funerals, I have had my husband drive me and whatever children are accompanying me. This is the first year (in February!) that we’ll be taking a family vaca for SO long! Winning this would help out SO much!!

When I fly, driving is often a hassle because of the parking situation. Sometimes we have a friend or family member drive us, others we use a limo service that is also rather like public transportation because it holds several passengers.

I usually park off site at a lot and take a shuttle. The last time I was pregnant and got sick on the shuttle :( I am hoping for a better experience

For those in metro Denver, RTD offers ‘express’ (limited stops) bus service at around $10 OW (half price for seniors & kids) from many locations. For us, it takes the same amount of time as driving, and has been very reliable; the downside is that the return trip is not always conveniently timed, but I always check the schedule so I’m aware of departure times. Check it out–if you can get to a Park-n-Ride or stop, it’s very convenient and cost-effective, http://www3.rtd-denver.com/schedules/getRouteList.action?routeType=9

I usually drive myself to the airport. I’d much rather have someone drop me off though.

We tried parking spot the last time we flew and had a great experience with them.

When traveling, my family and I used to have a friend or family member drop us off/pick us up to save money on parking. However, we recently located to The Denver area and that is no longer an option for us. When we fly out in Dec we will have to pay for parking. It would be so awesome to win this!

When I travel, I have done both. For shorter trips I prefer to park at the airport because it makes it a lot easier and cheaper, especially during the holidays! Christmas is the most hectic time to travel for me.

We don’t fly all that often, and depending on the length of the trip we sometimes park and sometimes get someone to drop us off. We’ll be flying in December and I think we’re going to have to pay for parking- unless we win! Now that we have 3 kids (and 3 carseats and a stroller and a million bags!) it’s so much more complicated!
