Via PointsCentric, you can get 2 days use of an Avis rental car to drive over a weekend for free when you sign-up for Avis First.

You’re supposed to enter a World Elite MasterCard to qualify.  But some folks report ANY MasterCard will work.

Your Next Weekend Vacation on the Road Could Be in a Free Avis Rental Car

Earlier I wrote how you also get free elite status with Avis when you sign-up!

There are some details you should know about this promotion.

Do You Qualify for the 2 Free Weekend Days?

Link:   Avis First sign-up

Link:   Avis Preferred sign-up

You get the 2 day weekend car rental by signing-up for the Avis First program with your World Elite MasterCard.  Here are 3 examples:

Note: PointsCentric says a friend was able to sign-up with a regular MasterCard to get Avis elite status.  So it might also work for the free rental!

But you can NOT sign-up for Avis First unless you’re already a US or Canadian member of Avis Preferred.  You can sign-up for Avis Preferred here.

Get New Wheels for the Weekend When You Sign-Up for Avis First

The Avis First program is intended for frequent Avis customers and isn’t open to everyone.

According to the Avis First terms, to be eligible you

…must complete 12 or more qualifying Rentals or a cumulative total of 35 or more qualifying Rental days in a calendar year on one Wizard number. All rentals must be checked out and checked in within the same calendar year to qualify.

That said, it doesn’t hurt to try anyway!

Check your email (and spam folder) for your Avis First welcome email and activate your account.  Then your weekend rental coupon should be emailed to you within 2 weeks.

You’ll pay taxes and fees on your rental car but you’ll still save money!

Bottom Line

Get a free Avis rental car (just pay taxes & fees) for 2 days over a weekend when you sign-up for Avis First with your World Elite MasterCard.  And you’ll also get elite status with Avis.

  1. FYI, I tried this with the Citi AA World Elite Mastercard, and got this response, “Our records indicate you are eligible to receive a one car upgrade where available, as an Avis First member. In order to start receiving the two free weekend day coupons, you must meet the rental requirement threshold of 12 rentals or 35 rental days in the calendar year. Once this is accomplished you will be invited to activate your account at avisfirst.com.”

  2. It asks me to enter the Wizard Number. What should I enter in this field ?

  3. From above – But you can NOT sign-up for Avis First unless you’re already a US or Canadian member of Avis Preferred. When you join Avis Preferred, you will receive a Wizard number.

  4. I tried several things including changing the saved credit card info on my Avis Preferred President’s Club account profile to match my Citi Executive/AAdvantage World Elite MasterCard number and after filling in the Avis First sign-up form, I get the message “Our records indicate you are not an Avis First member”. I guess I don’t qualify.

  5. yea i got the same message as Janet. However, then i went to try to log into the normal avis website, and it said i needed to “activate my account.” So I entered the info it asked for, and it said my info was incorrect.

    Janet, have you activated your account? Maybe do that first and you’ll have more luck. I’m unfortunately stuck till Monday when their wizard/profile customer service office opens back up

  6. Saw this in another thread:

    “When you click on the link ‘http://www.avis.com/car-rental/html/bridge/preferred/cwt/index.html’, under the ‘Continue’ button there is a link
    Already have Preferred Service? Click here and provide your Name and Avis Wizard number and you will be upgraded to AVIS FIRST within 24 hours, subject to verification.”

  7. I also went in and changed the saved credit card on file to my barclay arrival plus, which should be a mastercard elite.

  8. Enrolled avis preferred with AA master card and activited avis preferred membership but when I tried to sign you for the offer it says I am not avis first. How do we get to be avis first???

  9. I was stuck until I did what Talor said.

    I signed up for Avis Wizard 15 minutes ago, but could not get Avis First or Preferred after that.

    Then, using that link above, it asked me for my credit card. I used mine that’s one of the listed, and I was accepted. – THANK YOU FOR ENROLLING IN AVIS PREFERRED!
    You will receive a membership kit in approximately 1-2 weeks which will include your Avis Preferred member card and program information.

  10. Thank you, Taylor. (sorry for name typo)

  11. Thanks to Daraius and taylor for the clear instructions. On Sunday it was not allowing me to sign up for Avis First. Monday evening tried again and it worked.

    Hello,
    Does anyone know if this is already dead? Can’t get this..

  15. Same here. It made me a Preferred member, but when I tried to sign up for Avis First, it says I am not an Avis First member. No where did it ask for my credit card. I did log on to avis.com and updated my credit card to my Citi Prestige card.
