(Update 8/8 – reposting as this deal is only good through Friday 8/11)

I wanted to write a quick note on a deal I saw over on Mile Nerd. Budget is offering $20 off ANY car rental if you pay by Visa Checkout

To get the deal, you can head over to – there should be a widget down in the lower left advertising the deal.  If you don’t see it, it may be that the deal has expired.

Fine print on the deal

  • Save $20 off your Prepaid Base Rate when you rent using Visa Checkout on Plus, save up to 35% with Prepay Base Rates.
  • Disclaimer: Offer valid thru 8/11/17 while supplies last. Must book at to redeem. Valid only in contiguous U.S. See full terms.
  • Valid at participating Budget locations in the Contiguous U.S.(excluding Hawaii, Alaska, U.S. Virgin Island and Puerto Rico) on all car classes.
  • Applicable only to residents of U.S. (excluding U.S. Virgin Island and Puerto Rico).
  • Dollars off applies to the time and mileage charges only

Is it worth it?

Whether it’s worth it or not depends on your situation.  One thing to note is that this does require you to pay ahead of time, which means you’re locked into the deal and can’t use something like Autoslash.  Still, I bet you can find some pretty cheap one day car rentals!
