    This is just crazy! Avis is offering 3000 American Airlines miles per rental or 77 miles/Dollar. The more you rent, the more it goes up!
    Here’s how to get in:
    Step 1: Go to avis.com and find your closest airport
    Step 2: Enter Code: MUAA035 in the coupon code section
    Step 3: Select a subcompact for 1 day.
    Step 4: make 6 separate reservations for the same car by August 31st.
    Step 5: complete rentals and get 18,000 Points!
    I was able to find AMAZINGLY cheap rentals at the Burbank Airport. ($15.99/Day)

    Avis Rental at $26/Day For 3000 AA Points!

    If we calculate that out, for $157 (6 Rentals at $26 with taxes), I’m going to be getting 18,000 points! that’s 114 points/dollar.
    The key is to make them all separate! don’t put all 6 as consecutive days on the same reservation.
    My Recommendation is to take a friend and book 2 cars each day under your account. This expires August 31st, so rent two sub compacts per day and make the other person an additional driver! 12 rentals= 36,000 points! $312 gets you 36,000 points!
    In comparison, American Airlines charges 2.5 Cents to buy their points outright. With this, it’s less than 1 cent!
    AA Charges $29 per 1000 Miles so for 36,000, it would cost you $1,044!
    9 separate rentals gets you a saver ticket around the U.S
    12 Rentals gets you a one-way to Asia!
    This Expires August 31st! Get on it!

    And that great plan fails for me at Step 1 -- because my closest airport AVIS station charges more that $15.99 in fees for a one-day rental. :(

    Quick example: cheapest car for Saturday at SFO: $42.47 base rate prepaid. Add to that $30.97 in fees and taxes for a total of $73.44.

    And drive 20 miles to the East Bay and pay for bridge and gas six times? Ignoring completely the cost of my time. Naa, thanks.

    Best rates I see at DCA (without using codes) is $33+tax with many days in the $81+tax or higher range.

    Lol I live in Los Angeles, totally forgot about that :/
    my plan is to rent the car and park it at my dad's office which is 2 miles from the airport. Then just go and return it the next day. No additional gas costs :)
