I’ve always loved getting the mail, because you never know what new credit card offer or travel promotion or 1099 form will show up in the day’s mail.
Today, Emily received a postcard from Avis offering 1 free rental day after every 2 rentals of at least 2 days.
The “Free to Get Away” offer details say that you’ll get your free rental day certificate via email within 2 weeks of your second rental.
Both Emily and I could register for the promotion.
This is very similar to National’s One Two Free promotion which ends on January 31, 2012, though they may extend it now.
However, there are some exclusions in the terms and conditions that limit the value of the offer.
1. The terms say that the free rental days are NOT valid at Alaska, Newark, LaGuardia and JFK airports or at any metropolitan NY location. Sorry New Yorkers!
2. You can earn a maximum of 6 free rental day certificates.
3. You don’t earn credit to a free rental day if you earn airline miles or hotel points for the rental.
4. The terms say that blackout dates may apply, but doesn’t tell us what days those are.
Don’t forget to register before completing your rentals, since only rentals after registering count towards the promotion.
