OMG. Absolutely brilliant. And spectacularly insane. I love it.
And an entertaining report to boot. TR Hall of Fame worthy.
Congratulations 37rentals. ^

This is impressive 37Rentals! Whilst I am not legally old enough to rent a car, I wish that I could, just to do something like this!

Truly impressive idea and congrats on the first report!

Kind Regards LL

Fascinating! Good for you!

It sounds like you lucked out a bit with the very helpful Avis agents. (Somehow I don't see this gambit working in, say, Boston if a similar mileage deal were available.) But that in no way detracts from your ingenuity and unique accomplishment. You worked for this and deserve it.

Do let us know when the miles actually post. And enjoy however you use them!

You clearly belong in this group. While others might consider your effort insane, we FTrs see it as creative, brilliant, and inspiring.
