Ok, I'm neither a cell phone neophyte, or a newbie to Chicago and lower Wacker/Water St. I drive into Chicago, on odd hours, to complete a professional obligation. Been spending $18 to $45 to park. Referred to Spot Hero.' This is where the hero ends! Looked up a value @ $14 to park on Saturday, couldn't find the friggin parking lot. Spent 20 minutes looking for the lot. Went to my usual Saturday parking lot, cost $18. Now to get a refund. They know I didn't use their service. Called Spot Hero's exceptional customer service number, apparently I need a receipt for the lot I used, to get the refund. Hell do I know where that is, those receipts are like toilet paper... who gives a rats ass about a receipt that is non tax deductible. But thru their POLICY, no receipt no refund. Ok, so for $4, I open my on line CC account, apparently the billing statement hasn't hit my CC Account three days later. They know I didn't use the spot. They insist on a receipt... per their corporate policy! Dear friggin god..... NO SPOT HERO HERE, IT'S MORE LIKE A SPOT ZERO! This is what you have to go thru to save $4 friggin.
Absolutely saves you $$ over garage charges
I've always thought parking at DC was a rip off and expensive. I've found great rates with this app and it was so easy to use. It offered many more parking lots than another app I tried depending on the hours you specify. And because you can specify hours, sometimes you pay cheaper and not pay the whole day rate. I can plan my next trip to DC much better now that I am not too concerned with parking because of this app. It's a real hero!
Directions that the app gave me lead me nowhere remotely close to where the spot was supposed to be, never ended up finding the parking garage, had to pay to park somewhere else, and there is no way to get a refund so I effectively payed double to park in the city. I have a friend that swears by this app, but I would think twice before using it again.
