“Thrifty’s partnership with SAM’S CLUB is a natural in that both companies are value-oriented and are interested in saving their customers money,” said Brian Carpenter, Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Advertising for Thrifty Car Rental. “SAM’S CLUB Business Members are smart, value-sensitive shoppers, but don’t typically have the rental volumes that allow them to take advantage of the perks that larger companies receive. Thanks to this new relationship with Thrifty, SAM’S CLUB is removing the barriers for their Business Members, offering a range of benefits and great car rental rates with no minimum financial commitment.”
