Today’s post is a round up of all the current car rental bonus offer that will earn you some extra AAdvantage Miles. But first, I want to mention how you can earn one free rental day with just one rental.

National is sponsoring a promotion and reader giveaway over at Hack My Trip.  Everyone that enters will qualify for the rent one, get one free promo, and one reader will win a Victorinox Swiss Army wheeled tote, a Victorinox garment sleeve, and one $100 AMEX Gift Card. The giveaway ends Sunday evening. Go here to enter.

The car rental companies have rolled out several new bonus AAdvantage Miles offers and discounts. Here’s a breakdown of all the current offers:

Trying to decide who’s offering the best deal depends upon how long you’re renting the car, the cost, and whether you’re looking to minimize your cost per mile, or just earn the maximize the number of miles. I like to compare offers by the number of miles I earn based of the length of time I rent a car. I actually keep a spreadsheet so I can compare them at a glance (here’s a link if you’re interested).

Avis and Budget offer the most miles for a one or two day rental.

AAdvantage Car Rental Offer 1 - 3 Days

 

Alamo looks to be the leader in the clubhouse on any rental of 3 – 6 days.  Dollar and Thrifty offer the most miles if you’re renting for 7 or more days.

AAdvantage Car Rental Offers 4 -7 Days

 

Anyway, don’t forget to enter Hack My Trip’s reader giveaway.  Good luck and have a great weekend!
