You can earn frequent flier miles by flying, and now you can earn them by flying from BWI.
BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport says it is the first airport in the region to partner with the Thanks Again program that lets travelers earn miles or hotel points by spending money at the airport. Members earn 1 mile for every dollar they spend on parking, eating or shopping at BWI, and two hotel points for every dollar spent.
The program lets members tie their Thanks Again accounts to the airline or hotel of their choice.
It requires use of a registered credit card.
Thanks Again LLC, founded in 2004, has partnerships with more than 170 U.S. airports currently, as well as 25,000 retailers. It says it has more than 100 million active members.
