Avis Preferred Customer Booth.

I just got back from vacation and I think I’m suffering from Post-Vacation Syndrome: I’m behind on reading, still working through my emails, and a little slow with updates for the blog.  That’s why I’m a little late with this news item.

    I earned 5K bonus AA miles with this promo + 250 miles for the rental (5 days) and now we have booked another rental for this weekend. Hope to get another 5K :-)

    @ Marisa – Good for you!! I’m also renting a car this weekend and was thrilled when the extended the offer. Hope those miles take you someplace fun! :-)

    FWIW, just wanted to share my experience. I did a 1 day rental twice. No bonus received. Avis customer service said the rentals had all the right rate and bonus codes but one rental was coded as non-revenue and the other was getting only the basic 50 miles per day. Avis will manually request the bonus.

    @ MichaelIP – That’s good to know. Thanks for sharing.

    I had been waiting for some miles to post from rentals on Sept 1 and 2 and finally got 50 miles to post per rental. I called Aadvantage to ask about the 3000 bonus miles per rental and when they (and I) looked for the promotion on the AA website, only the current offer came up, which began yesterday and offers a lot less points.

    I have no proof, like a screenshot, showing that the promotion was extended til Sept 15.

    Does anyone have a screen shot or other proof that shows this offer was supposed to be, or is still, good til Sept 15?

    I hate to think that my drives to LAX were only to earn 50 AA points.

    […] Big Bonus: Do this by Saturday, September 15 (that’s tomorrow!), and you can get 5,000 frequent flyer miles on American Airlines. American Airlines is offering a similar deal if you rent a car from Budget—3,000 AAdvantage bonus miles through September 15 (also tomorrow!). These offers were set to expire at the end of August but were extended. Both deals require special coupon codes. […]

    My bonuses eventually posted. Had to contact Avis and had them open an issue ticket. Got a nice surprise of 5k bonus instead of 3k for 1 day rental :)
