|Thrifty Car Rental kicks off its new partnership with United Airlines Mileage Plus by offering triple miles to Mileage Plus members, effective Sept. 7 through Nov. 20, 1999.|
Mileage Plus members who rent from Thrifty airport locations in the U.S. and Canada during this time period will receive triple miles of 150 miles per rental day.
To receive triple miles, the rental car must be picked up during the promotional period. Rentals of up to 14 days in length will be eligible for triple miles, with additional days awarded at the regular level. The offer
