Silvercar Promo Codes ... are they eligibility-verified?

So, I signed up for Silvercar just now in advance of a rental in FLL next month. Got a referral code for $25 entered into the system so I assume I'll get that after the rental (how does that come, a credit on my account? Actual cash back... if so, what form?).
I was able to find a promo code for 1 day off a 2 day rental and 2 days off a 4 day rental online, and the system accepted it and gave me a dramatically lower estimated rate on the confirmation. This was stacked with that referral code.

I also have a CSR, so could have used the Visa Infinite 20% off promo code (they dont appear to stack), but this Audi one was more lucrative in my case.

The question is... does Silvercar have any way of verifying I'm an Audi owner? Didn't appear to ask that/disclaimer in T&C on rental reservation, not sure how they would at the pickup at FLL... and for that matter... using the Visa Infinite code (if i did), couldn't you just use that code (readily available online) and not have a Visa Infinite card?
- an example is I have a Hertz discount code for Amex Platinum, that I use regularly, but never pay with my Amex PLatinum, but I get the discount/late rental return privileges.

Do you mind sharing those codes?

Is there any kind of requirements to use these codes? I don't want to show up and the price jump up since I don't own an Audo

Just updating this thread, both the MYAUDI1/2 and AUDIPB1/2 codes no longer work. Audi owners can still get a discount by logging in through the myAudi site.

It's probably a way to stop the "abuse" of discount codes by customers not being targeted. Too late. The secret is already out, haha.

I'm not sure about whether posting codes here to set off an arms race between FT and Silvercar is wise.

Nevertheless, if you are an Audi owner, booking through myaudi.com can get you better rates than using these codes. I just booked two trips and got a better deal than I would have by using the codes.

VISAINF20 no longer valid

Anyone having issues getting the VISAINF20 code to work anymore? I keep getting an error message that it expired Nov 2, and Silvercar appears to not have come up with a replacement code for Visa Infinite cardholders.

Still works for me, but it looks like they’ve updated the terms and car must be reserved and paid for with VISA Infinite card.

Non-Audi owners can sign up for the Audi Club of North America as an "Associate Member". Looks like some Silvercar perks available. I would feel better about using those 2 free day promo codes vs booking from the myaudi.com website if you're a non Audi owner.
