One-Way Renters Will Receive a $50 American Express Reward Card

PARSIPPANY, N.J., 10-06-2008 — Waiting until after the busy summer moving season is over to relocate is one way savvy consumers save money, and now Budget Truck Rental has one more way to save exclusively for American Express® Cardmembers. Now through December 31, 2008, when customers book a one-way Budget Truck rental online and pay for it with any American Express Card, they will receive a $50 American Express branded reward card.

"At Budget Truck we are focused on helping our customers make the better move,” said Joe Ferraro, vice president of operations for Budget Truck Rental. “Our many tools and services take the guesswork out of moving, and now a $50 reward card will help offset some of the cost of moving for American Express Cardmembers."
