**Update- This deal is now dead. It may still be possible to book via united.com and applying this code there. Just to be safe, I’d make a back-up refundable reservation in case Avis tries to not honor this**

Per Mr. Pickles, Avis is currently offering free weekend rentals when using the promotional code TUEA002. This gives renters two free weekend days with no minimum rental. The code is valid for rentals now through June 30, 2013 at participating locations in the U.S. This won’t last long, so if you are interested you should book now!

Using this code, I was able to book a 2 day rental in Orange County for $0.
Using this code, I was able to book a 2 day rental in Orange County for $0.

To book head on over to the Avis site and choose your dates and location. The rentals do require a Friday overnight and need to be returned by Sunday at 3pm. Be sure to enter TUEA002 in the coupon field. On the next page, select your car type ranging from compact-full size (The normal price will be quoted here), but click either “Select” or “Pay Later” and on the final screen you will see the discount applied.

I was able to find some locations where I could get the rental for $0 such as the Orange County Airport. Others have a mandatory facility fee which this doesn’t cover but the total came only to $4.50. My best advice is if you have an upcoming weekend rental is to book this now since you can always cancel. This deal will not be around long. The code is valid at corporate/participating licensee stations in the U.S. (excluding the Alaska and the New York Metro area), Canada, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. You can even enter your favorite frequent flier number to earn some miles. Please feel free to comment below on your experience.
