Good afternoon everyone. ParkMobile is an app (iOS or Google) to pay for parking and it is very popular in the San Francisco Bay Area. A few days ago, I received an email from ParkMobile with details of a promotion they are running with MasterCard. If you add a new MasterCard credit card to your ParkMobile account, you will get a $5 Starbucks gift card (I’m not sure if it is a physical gift card or an eGC) after you pay for a parking session. The details of the promo do not specify the minimum parking price to qualifying for the $5 Starbucks gift card.
I added my Citi Double Cash Credit Card and dragged the card to the top of the list to set it as my default payment method. I then paid for parking – luckily there were lots of ParkMobile zones available nearby.
I made sure to pay with my linked Citi Double Cash Credit Card to trigger the bonus.
Even though I completed the promo requirements on 11/29, I just received the success email today (12/4). According to the email, I will receive an email within 3 business days with my $5 Starbucks gift card.
A few days later, I received the $5 Starbucks gift card email. I added the Starbucks eGC to my Starbucks app and transferred the balance to my Starbucks Gold Card.
I have not received the $5 Starbucks gift card yet, but it should arrive soon. If you have any questions about the ParkMobile promo, please leave a comment below. Have a great day everyone!
