Today was to be the last day of earn 3,000 bonus American Airlines AAdvantage miles when renting from Avis (read the reminder post). However, the offer has been extended to September 15, 2012.
I’m incredibly tempted to continue renting cars. I’ve been renting a new car each day for the past 14 days.
My family, on the other hand, was not as excited to hear that the offer has been extended. Grumbles about two door cars instead of four doors. The horrors, can you imagine. Those poor boys had to deal with pushing up seats to get into the back while sitting in convertible Ford Mustangs. I’m surprised no one called CPS.
The additional 45,750 miles that I could earn over the next 15 days is hard to pass up. What do you think, should I keep on renting?
Thanks to Gary from View From The Wing for the heads up, who got the tip from Stephen.
