Taking the Metro train vs. driving and parking

Yes, it's true you can take the Metro blue line and conveniently end up at the sort-of indoor Mall of America station. However, parking is free, and you have your choice of lots based on where you'll be spending most of your time (check a map). And, if you plan on actually purchasing something, bringing it back on the train felt awkward to me. There are parking ramps on the east and west sides of the mall, and even a lot to the north. The train dumps you off on the east side only.

What do you think of this planning tip?
