From Alamo – Save Money and earn 1,000 Bonus AAdvantage Miles

alamo

I think this is the first bonus from Alamo that I’ve seen since last year:

Save Up to 30% and Earn 1,000 American Airlines AAdvantage Miles!

Normally, I’d say it’s a pretty good deal, but right now my favorite car rental promotion is the offer from Avis of 1,500 Bonus AAdvantage Miles, and a 25% discount with a 3 day rental.   It was set to expire February 28, but was just extended through June 30, 2012.

Both Alamo and Avis give you 50 AAdvantage Miles per day, so unless Alamo gives you a better price, you’ll come out ahead with the Avis offer.

Anyway, here are the details of the Alamo promotion:

Save up to 30% and earn 1000 American Airlines AAdvantage miles with a three day minimum rental on any size vehicle at participating Alamo locations in the United States and Canada. Offer valid through December 31, 2012.

Book online at alamo.com or call 1-800-462-5266. Please request I.D. Number 7015732. Be sure to provide your American Airlines AAdvantage number at the time of rental.

You can save an extra $15 if you use Coupon Code: AD7428SDR (24 hour advance reservation required).

You’ll find complete terms and conditions here.

  1. Not sure why all the bloggers like the 1,000 or 1,500 mile bonus offers on a 3 day rental. Most rental car agencies offer a free day on a 3 day rental. So, unless you are on a VERY cheap rental, the free day is going to be worth more than 1,000 or so miles.

    • @ Mark – You make a good point, an extra free day is worth far more than 1,000 miles, I’ll try to remember to mention that next time. Thanks for bringing it up!

    • Hi JA – I haven’t heard of any one day bonus offers (not even from another airline or hotel loyalty program). The 2 day offer from Avis is the shortest rental period I’ve seen that qualifies for bonus miles. Sorry. Thanks for your question (and thanks for reading)!
