Earn Amazon Gift Cards When Renting From Avis — Up to 20 Percent

When you rent a car directly with Avis at participating locations in the United States through its official channels, you can earn a rebate of ten percent in the form of a gift card from Amazon.com while simultaneously saving up to 30 percent off of base rates — and the rebate applies to time and mileage charges of completed rentals of vehicles using your Amazon benefits…

Summary

I apologize that I have not had a chance to compare rates; but I would not be surprised to find rental car rates with Avis which are less expensive — never mind considering the rental car rates offered by competing companies — and thereby potentially rendering the value of the gift cards useless. Rental car rates can be as inexplicably fickle as airfares: not all discounts are the least expensive at all times…

…but although I rarely shop at Amazon.com, the gift cards typically never expire and can be used on a wide variety of items; so this is potentially a good deal worth considering — especially when you can use coupons in conjunction with this offer for further saving money on renting cars with Avis.

    This is a good deal for expensive rentals, long-term rentals, or off-airport locations. Otherwise, it’s better to earn miles with various airline promotions.
