  7. How long did it take between the activation and getting the coupon?

    • It took about a week or so. I think they supposedly do some sort of verification process in which they verify the MasterCard (I saw a pending charge from Avis)

  8. Hi, thanks for sharing this. When do the 2 rental credits expire? Are luxury vehicles included? 🙂

    • I think the rental days expiration is dependent on when you activate the Avis First benefit. Mine expire 1/15.

      And only up to full size is allowed but I would think an upgrade is possible based on Avis First Status

  9. I got the Avis Preferred membership and activated with my wizard number. I could not get approved for the deal ; message :Our records indicate that you are not an Avis First member. Pls help !

    • Were you already an Avis Preferred member before seeing this deal? If you, you should email Avis First at avis.first@avis.com with the subject “MasterCard World Elite (K115600) Avis First Full Benefit Upgrade”.

      This is what I had to do and I wrote the following:
      I received the invitation and would like to upgrade from Avis Preferred to Avis First.
      Name:
      City of Residence:
      Avis Wizard Number:

      Make sure your Avis profile has a MasterCard linked though (and it does seem now you need a World Elite for the free weekend rental coupon)!

      • I also got this issue and I’m still trying to get it fixed with Avis. I had signed up with my Arrival+.

        I contacted customer service through email and got this response:
        “Recently we have renamed our program tiers and Avis First is now called Avis Preferred Plus. A review of your Wizard Number shows that your account has been now coded to the Preferred Plus program where you will still enjoy the benefits of the old Avis First Program. The difference in the systems is most likely being caused by delay in the changes being transmitted across all of our servers. We do apologize for this inconvenience.”

        However, I googled this issue and seems that people have encountered this issue in years past…

  10. FYI – I just tried calling MC to sign up for Avis first and they told me the Avis First has been suspended. She couldn’t sign me up and she doesn’t know when it will be back up. Oh well. I tried.

  12. Signed up for preferred then reply to the invitation and received no response, when i called avis they said that even though I am a avis first member I will not receive any benefits on till I do 12 rentals etc. Any advice?

    • So you had preferred and then had to do the email to Avis First requesting Avis First? Maybe I would try signing up a new account completely with a MasterCard and hopefully you’ll get the email in a few weeks with the benefits summary and free weekend code.
