  • Step 3Upload a copy of your boarding pass, parking receipt or dining receipt using our handy online forms

We’ll verify your upload and credit your Tailfin Rewards account with points for each upload. Be sure to read the Rules + Fine Print section at the bottom of the page for full details, but here’s a summary of what you’ll earn:

Earning Rewards

  • You could earn vouchers for free beverages, dining at the airport, and free parking, plus for each reward threshold you reach, you’ll automatically earn entries into a drawing for frequent flyer miles on your favorite airline that serves RST

5.    EARNING REWARDS

a.     Automatic Rewards.

i.     All Participants who collect enough points during the Earning Period to reach the Reward Thresholds listed below will automatically be awarded the following reward(s):

1.    10 points = One (1) entry into a drawing for 50,000 frequent flyer miles (approximate cash value of $1500)

One winner will be awarded 50,000 frequent flyer miles on their choice of airline that serves RST at the time of the drawing (currently American Airlines or Delta Air Lines). Winner will be notified via email and/or phone and will have three (3) days to claim the reward. In the event the winner cannot be reached before the end of the three day period, another winner may be selected at random.

b.    Limited Supply Rewards.

i.     Additionally, a limited number of Participants who reach each reward threshold first during the Earning Period will receive the associated Limited Supply Reward(s) listed below:

1.    First 500 Participants to reach 25 points = Free beverage voucher

2.    First 250 Participants to reach 65 points = Free beverage voucher; one (1) day free parking voucher

3.    First 100 Participants to reach 120 points = Free beverage voucher, two (2) days free parking voucher

ii.     Limited Supply Rewards are provided on a first-come, first-served basis to Participants who reach each reward threshold first, as determined by the timestamp on the upload forms submitted by Participants. Even if a Participant is not among the first pre-determined number of Participants for one threshold, they may continue earning points to surpass other Participants and reach higher thresholds first. For example, a Participant may be the 501st person to reach the 25-point threshold (and therefore not receive the free beverage voucher), but could still be one of the first 250 to reach the 65-point threshold and receive the rewards for that level.

iii.     Limited Supply Rewards will be issued to Participants via email using the address provided by the Participant at the time of enrollment.
