You can get 3000 miles for Avis rentals of 1 to 2 days and 5000 miles for 3 days or longer. You need to use coupon code MUAA035 at the time of making the reservation. You do not have to use AA’s discount code to be eligible for the bonus miles, but you have to make sure that the AWD that you use IS eligible for mileage accrual. Some corporate AWD’s are not eligible for mileage accrual.

Budget American Airlines Bonus Miles – Coupon Code MUAZ025

Budget has a similar deal but for lower bonus miles. For rentals of 1 to 2 days you can get 1000 bonus AAdvantage miles and for rentals of 3 days or longer 3000 bonus miles. You need to use a coupon code MUAZ025 when making the reservation. As with Avis, you don’t have to use AA’s BCD. Just make sure that the BCD that you use IS eligible for mileage accrual.

The catch here is that there is no list of airport locations in the United States and Canada that participate to this promotion.

I have participated in the past for these promotions from both Budget and Avis. I was surprised to find out that i.e. the Budget or Avis LAX location, cannot remember which one, is not corporate owned and thus doesn’t participate to any of these. I only founded this out after the bonus miles didn’t show up. Make sure that the coupon code is on file when you make the reservation and your American Airlines frequent flier number.

The total number of miles that you earned from the rental should show on your receipt that you get at the time of return.

Conclusion

This is a great bonus miles promotion for American Airlines AAdvantage members that rent from Avis or Budget. Just make sure that the discounted rate that you are using is eligible for the miles and that the airport location that you renting from is participating.
