Summary

“Based on a comparison to my usual booking route at Costco Travel, this Avis-Budget offer came up at $50 per day for a car rental Costco priced at $60 per day”, according to this article written by Ric Garrido of Loyalty Traveler. “Looks worth a comparison if you want to pick up 1,000 Choice Privileges points with a discount car rental rate.”

If you are a member of the Choice Privileges frequent guest loyalty program who plans on renting a car from either Avis or Budget, consider taking advantage of this offer to earn bonus Choice Privileges points while potentially saving money on car rentals — especially as this offer does not appear to have an expiration date at this time…

…but do not be surprised if your account is not credited immediately with what you earned, as 17 months elapsed — as well as a significant amount of effort on my part — before I received the points which I earned as a result of renting cars from Avis.
