Business Extra is a phenomenal program whereby you can earn a separate, concurrent point currency for flying American Airlines and some partner flights. Quick recap: you earn 1 point for every $5 you spend on airfare. So this deal effectively earns you the same amount as if you were to have booked $1500 in flights. SOLID! All you need to do is register for the promotion, and then rent a ONE TIME. If you’re already an Avis For Business member you can earn additional business extra points as well.
If you’re a new customer:
- you can earn a quick 300 business extra points with a single rental…

- 50 points for every rental over $150
- 100 for any rental over $200
