I’ve written in the past about Silver, the innovative car rental company that’s quickly growing in the US. They have a fleet of A4s with free GPS, wifi, satellite radio, fair toll tracking, and a reasonable fuel plan.
But what makes Silver equally interesting is that as of late they’re more or less paying you to rent from them.
Silvercar is giving out gifts through December 25, 2014
I just received the following email from Silvercar:
By all counts, you guys ate up our scrumptious WACKFRIDAY deal. Demand was through the roof, and we thank you! But it’s time to take December to the next-level.
It’s time for Gifts That Don’t Suck!
You don’t need to enter a contest or use a code—get your gift just for driving Silvercar. And we’re not just talking any gift. This is a gift that does not suck. (The only guys we know who can get away with bad gifting are Joey and Chandler.)Our gifts include :
- Beats Headphones
- $100 Nordstrom gift cards
- Starbucks gift cards
- Free Silvercar!
We debated on these. We think they’re pretty awesome. Maybe next year.So don’t miss out! Simply reserve, drive, and enjoy! Everyone gets a gift! You’ll be gifted at the start of your reservation. Head on over to the Trunkshow for more details and to see how the program works. And don’t worry. This applies to existing reservations, as well.
Bonus! With our new Refer a Friend program, you and your friend both get $100 for all new customer referrals. It’s time everyone experience car rental the way it should be.
No registration is required, and every rental gets a gift, which ranges from a Starbucks gift card to a $100 Nordstrom gift card to an iPad. Silvercar’s blog has more information on the promotion. When you start your rental you’ll pick a random envelope which will determine the gift you receive.
So while we don’t know exactly how much of each prize they’re giving away, it actually seems to be a fairly decent promotion.
Combine this with $100 off your first Silvercar rental
As I’ve written about in the past, Silvercar has a generous referral program as well.
If you’re a new user, sign up using my referral code BSCHLAPPIG (or someone else’s), and make a two day rental by December 31, 2014:
- You’ll receive a code for $50 off your first rental and a $50 Visa gift card after the rental
- I’ll receive a $100 credit
