Flying Blue

Thrifty just launched two great promotions for Flying Blue members, the frequent flyer program of Air France and KLM. Flying Blue is a SkyTeam partner of Delta, which means that there are a decent amount of redemptions for any miles that you accrue, plus, Flying Blue program is a 1:1 transfer partner of all four major transferable points programs: American Express Membership Rewards, Chase Ultimate Rewards, Citi ThankYou Rewards and Starwood Preferred Guest. That means that you can move points from any of those programs over to Flying Blue if you need points for a travel redemption.

Save 10% plus Triple Flying Blue Miles

The first Thrifty promotion earns you triple miles on Flying Blue, plus an additional 10% savings on your rental. That's 150 miles earned per day (normally 50) on your rental. It's not often that you see a promotion from Thrifty that offers both a miles multiplier and and a nice discount off the rental cost. The other great thing about this promotion is that it's good not only in the United States and Canada, but in Europe as well, which is even rarer for Thrifty.

4 Flying Blue Miles per 1€ or $1 spent

The second Thrifty promotion earns you quadruple points on Flying Blue, but no discount on the base rental rate.. Renters will have to determine whether it's a better deal to get the extra mile per dollar spent, or get the 10% off discount from the previous offer. Like the previous one, it's good not only in the United States and Canada, but in Europe as well.
