Amex Thrifty Double Miles

Thrifty Car Rental will award double miles to participants in most of the company’s frequent flyer programs when they rent from Thrifty and pay with an American Express card effective Sept. 1 – Oct. 31, 1998.

To receive double miles, the rental must be picked up between Sunday and Wednesday and be kept a minimum of two days.

Those paying with American Express are eligible for double miles on these partner airlines: Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, America West, Continental, Horizon Air, Reno Air and TWA. American Airlines AAdvantage members may pay via any method and still receive double miles from Thrifty.
