Do Penske Coupons Really Save Money?

Planning to save with a Penske promo code? 

If you’re moving long-distance, it’s natural to want the best deal. While you’re researching the cheapest rental trucks, you may be wondering if Penske® coupons can actually save enough to help you stay within your moving budget. Though they do offer discounts on rental trucks, their prices (and value) may not be the best when compared to moving services like U-Pack®. Keep reading to learn more about Penske promotions and how much you can expect to save on your move.

Penske’s online coupons and how they work 

According to the Penske website, the following discounts are available: 

  • free unlimited mileage 
  • AAA discount 
  • military discount 
  • college student discount 
  • a general 10% discount expiring July 31, 2023 

They advise that promotions are subject to change at any time, and coupons only apply to the rental rate for the truck. Costs for taxes, fees, liability coverage and fuel are not discounted. 

How do Penske truck rental discounts compare to U-Pack prices? 

U-Pack is a budget-friendly way to move without worrying about driving a rental truck. You handle packing, loading and unloading, and then we transport the moving equipment to your new home (or to one of our 239 service centers across the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico). U-Pack prices compare to rental truck rates (sometimes they’re cheaper), even without coupons! But on top of our already low prices, you can use the coupon code BLOG25 to save $25, and you’ll automatically get $25 off simply by reserving online.  

Let’s compare moving prices for a 3-bedroom home from Albuquerque, NM, to Cincinnati, OH, in August 2023.
