This afternoon, Avis sent out a blast to American Airlines AAdvantage members announcing a new promotion now through July 15th where AAdvantage members can earn up to 7,500 bonus miles for car rentals at participating Avis airport locations in the U.S., Canada, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean. Get the bonus miles by using code MUAA036.

Per the Embrace the Ride page,  the promotion will accrue the following miles:

  • Earn 1,000 AAdvantage bonus miles on rentals of 1-2 days.
  • Earn 3,000 AAdvantage bonus miles on rentals of 3-4 days.
  • Earn 5,000 AAdvantage bonus miles on rentals of 5-6 days.
  • Earn 7,500 AAdvantage bonus miles on rentals of 7 or more days. I value AA miles at 1.7 cents a piece, so 7,500 miles to me is worth ~$127.50- not a bad return, especially if you can get a cheap rental.

I made a sample booking at LAX from June 8th to June 15th and the cheapest rental is only $199.26, all taxes included. Valuing AA miles at 1.7 cents a pop ($127), thats like getting a 64% “rebate” on the rental in the form of miles- not bad! Plus, when you charge your rental on a Sapphire Preferred or BarclayCard Arrival you get 2 points per dollar, which is an additial 2.2%+ back in value.

$199 all in for 7 day rental at LAX

This is one of the more lucrative car rental promotions that I’ve seen in a while- if you find any amazing deals on rentals please share in the comments!

    Can you use this coupon code multiple times?

    I literally returned an Avis rental yesterday to SFO. I wonder if they’d credit the bonus to my account.

  • thepointsguy

    Never hurts to ask!

  • thepointsguy

    Yes

  • Christine

    If you’re planning to rent for fewer than 7 days though, I think this offer is better? http://www.aa.com/viewPromotionDetails.do?fN=aad-car-avis-world-offer.xml&_locale=en_US

    Sent them an email Bri…will report back if they Yay or Nay’d it. :)

  • rick i

    Thanks for the 7500 AA miles

  • SOLTATIO

    I take it this will only work if you make the reservation and use the car before July 15th and not if you reserve (and even prepay) a car for a date after July 15th but booked before then?

    What determines a day? Is it when the calendar changes a day? Is it 24 hours? I have a rental from Aug 1 early AM to Aug 5 early evening. Is that just 4 days? Because I’m certainly going to be charged more than just 4 days.

    MUAA004 is another great code. (www.avis.com/aacarspecials)

    The differences are:
    Max bonus is 5000
    1-2 day bonus is 1500
    Code is valid until Aug 31, 2014

  • trey

    if they charge you for 5 x daily rate (and not 4 days and 3hrs for example), it’s counted as 5 days.

  • trey

    a 3-day weekend rental at CMH came out to $58 (tax included)! that’ll get you 150 base + 3000 bonus miles or 1.8 cpm…almost 100% return!

  • Justin

    They already applied the mileage to my Dividend Miles account…darn it. Seems like they would’ve applied it if I had my AA number linked.

    Can I apply this promo to my past Avis rentals? Also thank you so much for this website — I LOVE all the tips!!!!

    One last question :-), I’m very confused on how I can use Avis Preferred to rent a car for free. my last company we used Hertz and it was very easy to use points for free rentals. We are going to LAX & will be renting a car (this will be this first time ever that I have to pay for a rental for personal use – I’ve always been able to use points ect) next week thurs – tue evening. What’s the best way I can book a rental with Avis using my FF points from either AA, Marriott or Hilton points or should I just pay cash? Thank you in advance :-)

    Are there any American Airlines coupons that are still valid? MUAA036 with 7500 max miles expired on 08/31 and MUAA004 with 5000 max miles expired on 09/30. Is there anything like this apart from MUAA070 with 1500 max miles?
