Wink The Avis Accumulator is back



From the 1st April until 30th September 2012, simply rent six times and you could earn over 50,000 Award Miles.

Maybe somebody who took part previously can summarize the experience? From what I understand miles did not always get credited properly?

It was a mess: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/flyin...highlight=avis: bad CS, 'crap excuses', miles that didn't post and rentals (that ought to qualify) were not acknowledged. *I didn't participate*

double dip

can we double dip with the 2k per rental on class C or higher rental?
seems both promo uses the same AWD number.
Fine print 'Offer may not be used in conjunction with any other coupon, promotion or mileage offer."
how would their system know which promo we're aiming for

Did anyone NOT have trouble getting miles to post last time?

From the T&C this time around (emphasis added ):

The Accumulator bonus will be awarded on the first qualifying 6 rentals made between 1st April and 30th September 2011.

Maybe they thought things were going too smoothly last year, so this year they have increased the chances of
things not working and people not getting the right number of miles

2,000 bonus Miles for Ivory members
Book for 3 days or more in a car group 'C' or above between 1st March 2012 and 30th June 2012 and you could earn 2,000 bonus Miles.
Rentals must check out between 1st March and 31st December 2012.

Well, it took a lot of my time for me to get them. A lot. And a lot of frustration, hitting walls, emails, phonecalls more emails and more phonecalls and promisses not kept. Numerous of all of them. Despite the fact that I followed all the rules to the detail. FB kicked their ... and helped me out in the end. (thanks FB)

Their system knows nothing, trust me.

So, once again. Avis never again! They can put the miles...no I better not go there...

Anyway read my posts and you'l see that I am usually on the positve side of things. Not with this, and I "might" not be the only one.

Has anyone been brave enough to begin giving this one a go this year? I managed to get everything credited for the last time, with a bit of a struggle, and am tempted to have a go again. I just fear that they will say it was a misprint, and was last year's promotion!

Are Ivory members ineligible?

I am echoing traveldealer's question. If you are just an Ivory member, are you eligible for this promotion?

Also, I booked 6 rentals through the linked website and got full credit for each rental. No hassles at all.
