  1. To Receive Points:

Registered persons receive Points by spending money for vehicle rentals at participating Budget Rent-A-Car locations only (Atlanta, Birmingham, Kansas City, Memphis, Nebraska, Utah and Wichita). Points are received for vehicle rental time and mileage as well as the purchase of coverages, accessories and gas in conjunction with vehicle rentals. Monies spent on taxes, government fees, airport fees and expense recovery charges will not qualify for receipt of Points. Points will not be awarded on rentals made by redeeming Betterway Rewards Certificates. Vehicle rentals booked with Preferred Member rates also will not qualify for receipt of Points. 

Each dollar spent on such qualifying purchases at participating Budget Rent-A-Car locations will result in receipt of one (1) Point.

Registered persons are not required to provide a promotional code or the like in order to receive Points for qualifying purchases. Points will be awarded automatically to registered persons who make qualifying purchases.

By posting a notice on the Website, Sponsor may modify the above list of Budget Rent-A-Car purchases which qualify for Points. Sponsor will provide at least (10) business days' notice prior to making any such modifications. (But, removal of a purchase from the list of qualifying purchases will not affect registered persons who already made the applicable type of purchase and received Points in accordance with these Terms.) 

Reservations qualifying for Points may be made with a participating Budget Rent-A-Car location by booking on-line through one of the participating location's websites (i.e., www.budgetatl.com, www.budgetbhm.com, www.budgetkc.com, www.budgetmemphis.com, www.budgetnebraska.com, www.budgetutah.com or www.budgetwichita.com), by phone call to participating location, or at the location itself. A registered person may also make a qualifying reservation for a participating Budget Rent-A-Car location via the national Budget Rent-A-Car website (www.budget.com) or the national Budget Rent-A-Car reservation phone number. Reservations made through a travel agent, online travel agent or other association website or other third party will NOT qualify for Points (even if made with a participating Budget Rent-A-Car location). 

  1. About Points:

After conclusion of qualifying purchase transaction (i.e., return of vehicle rental), allow approximately forty-eight (48) hours processing time for Points to be reflected as “pending” in your Program Account. “Pending” Points cannot be redeemed by registered person for Betterway Rewards Certificate (“Certificate”) unless and until they have been validated and marked as “awarded” by Sponsor.

If the underlying, qualifying purchase transaction is cancelled or voided by participating Budget Rent-A-Car location for any reason, any “pending” Points available in conjunction with such purchase transaction will be forfeited by registered person and Sponsor will have no liability relative to same.

The Point validation process will take approximately seven (7) – ten (10) business days; but, Sponsor reserves the right to take additional time to validate Points as it deems necessary in its sole discretion and without liability or further notice, so as to confirm the authenticity and legitimacy of “pending” Points. As part of the Point validation process, Sponsor reserves the right to require registered person to provide information and/or materials establishing that his/her participation in the Program is in full compliance with these Terms. This includes but is not limited to the provision of information and/or materials substantiating the manner in which registered person acquired Points. Should Sponsor determine that such additional materials/information are inadequate or defective in any way or should registered person fail to timely provide such additional materials/information upon Sponsor's request, Sponsor will deem such “pending” Points invalid, in whole or in part. In such case, Sponsor shall have no liability to such registered person in conjunction with such invalidated “pending” Points. Sponsor further reserves the right to terminate such registered person’s Program Account without further notice and/or to pursue appropriate legal remedies should Sponsor suspect that such registered person sought to defraud Sponsor in conjunction with Program participation. 

Points are valid and must be redeemed for Certificate within one (1) year of date of Points being designated as “awarded” by Sponsor; if not used by that time, Points expire and are void. IT IS THE REGISTERED PERSON’S SOLE RESPONSIBILITY TO KEEP TRACK OF THE EXPIRATION DATE OF HIS/HER (“AWARDED”) POINTS. WHILE REGISTERED PERSON MAY BE NOTIFIED IN ADVANCE OF EXPIRATION OF HIS/HER (“AWARDED”) POINTS VIA HIS/HER PROGRAM ACCOUNT OR OTHERWISE, SPONSOR DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL LIABILITY FOR (“AWARDED”) POINTS THAT HAVE EXPIRED.

Points are (and remain at all times) the property of Sponsor and are intended solely for Sponsor’s internal use in tracking registered persons’ participation in the Program. Registered persons have no property interest in Points. Points have no cash value; points can only be acquired by registered persons making qualifying Budget Rent-A-Car purchases (at participating Budget Rent-A-Car locations in Atlanta, Birmingham, Kansas City, Memphis, Nebraska, Utah and Wichita) and cannot be obtained otherwise (e.g., Points cannot be purchased directly). Any attempted sale, purchase, transfer or assignment of Points is void and of no legal effect, with all Points involved in the attempted transfer being forfeited; in addition, such actions may result in termination of registered person’s Program Account without further notice. In such case, Sponsor also reserves the right to pursue appropriate legal remedies against all persons involved in such attempted transfer of Points.

  1.  Betterway Rewards Certificates:

A registered person who is a Betterway Rewards Preferred Member can redeem every twelve (12) “awarded” Points for one dollar ($1) value on a Certificate. A registered person who is a Betterway Rewards Gold Member can redeem every ten (10) “awarded” Points for one dollar ($1) value on a Certificate. 

By posting a notice on the Website, Sponsor may modify the valuation of Points (for registered persons who are Betterway Rewards Preferred and/or Betterway Rewards Gold Members) and when “awarded” Points may be redeemed for Certificates. Sponsor will provide at least (10) business days' notice prior to making any such modification. (But, such modification of Point redemption values will not affect Certificates already issued by Sponsor.)

To redeem Points for Certificate, access your Program Account and click on the “Redeem Points” button. You will be asked to select the denomination of the Certificate you would like to redeem as well as the quantity of that particular Certificate denomination. Please note that there is a maximum of five (5) Certificates that can be applied towards any rental. Once this figure is entered, a Certificate will be created and must be printed out for future use, subject to the expiration date below. When Certificate is created, the applicable number of Points will be deducted from your Program Account. BE CAREFUL BECAUSE ONCE REDEEMED FOR A CERTIFICATE AND DEDUCTED FROM YOUR PROGRAM ACCOUNT POINT BALANCE, POINTS CANNOT BE REPLACED OR RESTORED.

Certificates are valid for one (1) year from the date of creation. If not used by the expiration date, Certificate is void and Sponsor shall not have any liability for same. IT IS THE RECIPIENT’S SOLE RESPONSIBLITY TO KEEP TRACK OF THE EXPIRATION DATE OF CERTIFICATE. RECIPIENT WILL NOT RECEIVE ANY NOTICE OR WARNING FROM SPONSOR PRIOR TO CERTIFICATE EXPIRATION.

Certificates may be used at any participating Budget Rent-A-Car location (Atlanta, Birmingham, Kansas City, Memphis, Nebraska, Utah and Wichita) for all costs associated with vehicle rental, including vehicle rental time and mileage as well as the purchase of coverages, accessories and gas, taxes, government fees, airport fees and expense recovery charges.

Certificate is valid only for registered person who originally received same by redeeming “awarded” Points from his/her Program Account and is NOT transferable. Certificates may only be redeemed in-person at participating Budget Rent-A-Car location when returning vehicle rental, with presentation of valid government-issued photo identification. Printed Certificate is required for use. Certificate is not redeemable or exchangeable for cash or credit. One-day advance reservation is required in order to use Certificate. Certificate cannot be combined with any other offer, promotion, coupon or discount, regardless of whether sponsored by participating Budget Rent-A-Car location (in Atlanta, Birmingham, Kansas City, Memphis, Nebraska, Utah and Wichita), any other Budget Rent-A-Car location or Budget Rent A Car System, Inc. Additional restrictions on use may apply as indicated on the Certificate. Certificates are good for one-time use only and must be redeemed in their entirety. No refund or change will be given if rental charges are less than the Certificate value.

If Certificate is defective or irregular, Sponsor at its sole discretion may replace such Certificate with another Certificate of equal value (i.e., for same number of “awarded” Points). But, should Sponsor decide not to replace Certificate, Sponsor shall not have any liability of any kind in conjunction therewith.
