Hertz Users: Earn Top Tier Status with Minimal Effort!
Hertz Rent a Car is now offering a free upgrade from their Gold Plus status to their highest elite level, The Hertz Gold Plus Rewards President’s Plus. Once you upgrade, you will have President’s status for 12 months.
To take advantage, you’ll have to sign up here and use promo code 501032 . Make sure you translate the page to English, I could only find it in German. Once you translate, it’s easy enough to sign up.
You must sign up by 10/31/17 and status is good for 12 months.
Perks of the Program
- Confirmed vehicle availability with a minimum 48 hour advance reservation.
- Confirmed vehicle one-car-class upgrade
- 25% bonus on Hertz Gold Plus Rewards Points.
- 675 Rewards Points after every 15 qualifying rentals.
- Includes all the benefits of Gold service. (This is their entry level status, so there’s not too much to be excited about here except that you get to skip the line and earn points for your rentals.)
If you rent cars, this is a good deal for you. Normally you would have to complete 20 qualifying rentals a year to achieve this status and you’re getting all the perks for nothing, so that’s great. A 25% bonus on points earned goes a long way towards earning free rentals. For example, if you spend $200 on your rental, you would earn 250 points. Free days start at 550 points. Plus, you’ll get an extra 675 points after 15 rentals. Free money.
While there are discounts associated with this program, I would definitely look for a better discount code or deal when making your reservations. You should still earn the bonus on points earned, so you’ll get the best of both worlds.
Go for it if you ever rent cars. It’s a great option to have in your back pocket and it’s free!
