FREE 2-Day Car Rental

UPDATE: This deal is now dead. Only lasted a day or so. Good luck for those of you that made your reservations!
UPDATE #2: Just got an email from Avis and I guess they are canceling any reservations made with the coupon code. Not very impressed by Avis on this one.

Avis has a promo code right now for a FREE 2-day weekend car rental. You will have to pay for tax and fees (anywhere from $5-$30), which will depend on the city you rent the car in.
