Yep, Remote (North or South) is easily the cheapest. Doubt any off-airport services can beat it.

If you're worried about spring storm hail damage, I suggest the next level in (think it's called express?). $10/day for uncovered (waste of money, imho), but $12/day for covered parking.

Then, of course, you could use terminal parking, for the bargain basement price of $19/day. :rolleyes:

There's also a bunch of hotels in the area, that will let you park for free, if you spend the night before you fly out, in their hotel. I've used that before, and had no problems.

Unless the hotel provides a parking sticker; you should be able to park as if you were attending some conference.
Walk in your a travel bag; hit the restroom and head back out to the shuttle.
Reverse the sequence on return - catch the hotel shuttle at the airport terminal.
worse that can happen is you get called out by the front desk or they place a warning sticker on your car. I do not think that they would authorize towing for a short time visit.

But for $10-12 / day; why take the chance.

Why not take a cab / get a friend to drop you off?
Above makes sense if you have a friend that can burn an hour each way for you.

Thirded for north/south remote. I usually do north remote since I live north of the airport.

I've been to multi-day conventions held at the Grand Hyatt near Terminal D and didn't pay anything for parking. I wasn't staying the night, but I didn't have to get any stickers or passes to put on my dash.

The one time I did it, they had you fill out a card, with your car's info (make, model, license plate number, etc) when you checked in. Guess they checked the cars parked for more than a couple days against their list.

It's really only a good deal if you're staying away more than a week, and flying out before about 9AM, for me. I live 2 hours from DFW, and drive in. But I usually try to schedule my outgoing flights after 9, so I don't have to leave home too early in the morning.
