Avis is offering car rental cash back in the form of Amazon gift cards

Avis will begin offering free Amazon gift cards to Amazon customers who rent cars from Avis. Through the new offer, Amazon customers will be eligible to get gift cards for 10 percent of their rental cost.

Starting later this month, customers who book a rental through the Avis Alexa skill will get a gift card for 20 percent of their rental’s cost, which could be a pretty nice chunk of change, assuming you’re willing to navigate through the voice menus.

Just link your Amazon and Avis accounts on Avis’ website, and you’ll get your gift card delivered to your Amazon account’s email address within 48 hours of completing your rental. If you’re someone who already rents cars from Avis, it’s basically free money.

Avis is also offering up to 30 percent off its base rate on rentals to Amazon customers, although there are a whole lot more terms and conditions that apply to that offer than just the gift card, but if you’re already linking your account for the gift card, it’s a nice bonus.

For now, the gift card offer is only available in the US, but Avis says it’s looking to expand it to “other key markets” in the future.
