Earlier this year, I wrote about an opportunity to earn 9,000 Club Carlson points for a 3-day rental with Avis. A similar promotion is now available from their sister agency, Budget Rent-a-Car.
The promotion is quite simple. Rent a car before 31 December, 2014 for 3+ days at virtually any Budget location worldwide (except Asia) and choose Club Carlson as your miles / points earnings preference. You will receive 9,000 Club Carlson points, which is good for a free Category 1 hotel night.
To take advantage of this promotion, follow this link, which will take you to a Budget / Club Carlson webpage with the required information already filled in.
Buying 9,000 Club Carlson points would cost $63 (at the regular price of $7 per 1,000) so you’re unlikely to find it worthwhile to rent a car and park it in your garage for 3 days. But if you need to rent a car, 9,000 Club Carlson points is possibly more valuable than whatever miles you would get from your preferred airline. Just make sure you’re not paying more using this discount code than you would via your usual codes (as well as Quidco and Topcashback)
