Areas USA, a leading provider of food and beverage and retail services in the travel industry, is launching the Thanks Again Traveler Loyalty and Engagement program system-wide. As a result, travelers patronizing Areas USA concepts can securely and automatically earn airline miles, hotel points or other popular consumer rewards of their choice when shopping or dining with registered debit and credit cards.

Guests conveniently and securely enroll in the Thanks Again program for free at http://www.thanksagain.com/areas and earn incremental miles or points when shopping or dining at airport stores operated by Areas USA nationwide including within Chicago O’Hare International (ORD), Los Angeles International (LAX), Reagan Washington National (DCA) and Boston Logan International (BOS). The seamless loyalty program also extends to non-airport retail locations operated by Areas USA – eight Florida Turnpike Service Plazas, two Maryland I-95 Travel Plazas (Chesapeake House, Maryland House) and Dover Downs Hotel & Casino.

As an added bonus, enrolled travelers earn double miles/points when shopping or dining at Areas USA concepts within airports that have previously launched Thanks Again in concessions. This pertains to Areas stores throughout Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International (ATL), Newark Liberty International (EWR) and Miami International (MIA).

Marc Ellis, Thanks Again CEO, commented, “Thanks Again is excited to directly partner with Areas USA, a renowned concessions operator. There is great synergy between our two companies since both Areas and Thanks Again strive to better engage airport travelers and motivate consumers to spend more as they travel.”

“We are so proud to partner with Thanks Again to recognize our loyal Guests with sought-after rewards such as airline miles and hotel points,” said Xavier Rabell, CEO of Areas USA, Inc. “This is one example of our innovative approach to show our ongoing commitment to bringing the very best products and services to our guests.”
