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.

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.

Hi, I enrolled in Avis Preferred, got my wizard number and activated the account, yet I could not get enrolled as First member. Error message : “Our records indicate that you are not an Avis First member.” the link that Taylor mentioned was not there anymore. Pls help !!!

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.
