Budget Renters Feel The Drive To Revive With Free Dunkin’ Donuts® Coffee
Parsippany, NJ Aug 15, 2005 -

The National Coffee Association says more than half of all American adults drink coffee daily.*  To stimulate its business, Budget Rent A Car System, Inc. today announced a promotion that lets customers revive with Dunkin’ Donuts® coffee, officially recognized as the Best Coffee in America.**  Budget customers will receive two pounds of Dunkin’ Donuts® coffee free after they’ve rented two times between August 15th and December 15th.   

“We’re always looking for new ways to thank customers for their business,” said Scott Deaver, executive vice president of marketing for Cendant Car Rental Group, parent of Budget.  “This is a great way to do so because there’s no limit – the more they rent, the more free coffee they earn.”

The free coffee offer is valid for U.S. residents who rent at participating Budget locations in the United States.  Customers must register for the promotion online at www.budget.com/freecoffee and complete two rentals of at least two paid rental days during the promotion period.  Customers must have a RapidRez or Fastbreak (BCN) to register and must use the RapidRez or BCN when renting.  Two pounds of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee will automatically be shipped to the customer after two qualified rentals.  Offer valid while supplies last.  For full terms and conditions, including a list of participating locations, visit www.budget.com/freecoffee.
