Through July 15, members of the American and US Airways frequent-flyer programs can earn bonuses for Avis rentals, as follows:
AAdvantage members can earn up to 7,500 bonus miles when renting from participating Avis airport locations in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean.
Mention coupon # MUAA036 to earn the bonus.
There’s also a discount of “up to 35%” when using Avis discount code K817187.
AAdvantage members normally earn 50 miles per day for Avis rentals, so 1,000 miles would amount to a 2,000 percent bonus.
US Airways bonus
Dividend Miles members can earn quintuple miles on Avis rentals of one or more days at participating airport locations in the U.S. (excluding Alaska), Canada, and Puerto Rico.
Mention coupon # MUAA048 to earn the bonus.
There’s also a discount of “up to 30%” when using Avis discount code K024334.
Dividend Miles members normally earn one mile per $1 for corporate or government rentals, two miles per $1 for consumer rentals.
Assuming a one-day leisure rental costing $50, the bonus would result in total earnings of 500 miles.
It appears the American bonus will be bigger for most rentals. The discount is bigger as well. But either way, the bonuses are well worth considering when renting a car during the promotion period.
