We’re giving away free parking all summer long with an Apple Pay exclusive offer!
When you book a parking spot and pre-pay with Apple Pay, you’ll be automatically entered to win $250 in SpotHero parking credits. Each week this summer, we’ll choose two lucky winners and deposit $250 of parking credit into their SpotHero accounts.
The free parking sweepstakes begins June 30 and continues through September 1, 2016. Winners will be drawn at random every Thursday from the pool of qualified entrants. One entry is allowed per person. See below for the official rules and additional details on how to enter.
