DFW airport joins Thanks Again Rewards

While at the airport yesterday, I noticed a sign that said I can get miles for parking/eating/shopping at DFW through Thanks Again Rewards. Anyone have experience with this program at either DFW or other airports?

Given how frequently I change cards I never bothered. I also rarely spend money at airports but with the decline in on board meals maybe I'll try it.

Yes, I never spend money at food establishments (especially given my AC membership) but I do always park at the airport.

It's always a connection point for me so only food.

Thanks again has to be the most confusing program ever. Their website looks like it was made in 2001. I signed up a year ago but never put too much stock in it.

Agreed on the program confusion and amateur website.

This is the same program that SEA uses, and believe or not the website has been improved, as has the program. IIRC you used to have to spend $100 before receiving 100 miles. Now it's 1 mile/$, with a bonus of 5000 miles if you reach $1000 spend in a quarter.

Here is the first issue I have run into. I use my tolltag to autocharge my CC when I park at DFW. So the charge shows up on the credit card as the Tollway Authority & not DFW parking. This a problem?

Yes, same here, no TA points when using the tolltag.

For me, the 50 or so TA points I would typically get for parking aren't worth the hassle of bagging the tag and waiting at the booths for the ticket and to pay. Others may feel differently, of course.
