Instant 25 Free Hertz Gold Plus Rewards Points Just for Registering for Fall Bonus Promotion — Again

n what appears to be the exact same promotion as this one in January of 2015, you can earn double the Gold Plus Rewards Points for the first qualifying rental and triple the Gold Plus Rewards Points for every rental from Hertz thereafter now through Tuesday, December 15, 2015 during the promotion period after you first register here; and once again, you can earn 25 free Hertz Gold Plus Rewards points in seconds simply by registering for this fall promotion…

…and once again, “register for the Hertz Fall Promo here and you’ll instantly be awarded with 25 points” is what was posted over at the official Internet web site of Dan’s Deals. “25 points won’t do much (a free weekend rental day is 550 points), but it will extend the expiration of your account balance by 24 months.”

As with the other aforementioned promotion, there is no indication which proclaims that you will earn 25 free Hertz Gold Plus Rewards points for registering for the fall bonus promotion by Hertz; but I can verify that it worked again.

The terms and conditions of this promotion are as follows:

You must be a Hertz Gold Plus Rewards® member and a resident of the U.S. or Canada to earn double/triple bonus points. Member must select to receive Hertz Gold Plus Rewards points on reservation. Registration is required at HertzFallBonus.com to participate in this promotion and track your rentals. Only rentals made after the date of registration will qualify for the promotion.

Only your base rental points and President’s Circle® (25%) or Five Star® (10%) bonus will be doubled on your first qualifying rental, but tripled on the subsequent rentals thereafter. All other bonuses will not be doubled/tripled.

Valid on paid rentals picked up beginning September 8 through December 15, 2015 at participating Hertz corporate locations in the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico, USVI, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Brazil, Australia and New Zealand only. The Hertz Gold Plus Rewards program awards members one point per qualifying U.S. dollar spent or its equivalent in the currency paid for car rented. Bonus points will not be awarded on rentals accruing other Frequent Travel Program Points. Bonus points will be added to member’s account up to 10 days from the rental return and can be redeemed immediately. Only paid rentals will qualify for this promotion. Standard rental qualifications and return restrictions apply. Advance reservations required. Modifying your reservation may result in a change in your rate and/or invalidate this offer. Offer has no cash value and cannot be combined with any other bonus offer or other promotion. The minimum age for this offer is 21 and age differential charges may apply. All Hertz Gold Plus Rewards rules apply. Go to hertz.com for Gold Plus Rewards Program Terms and Conditions.

I looked at my account balance after I registered for the promotion and logged in; and sure enough, 25 Gold Plus Rewards points were added to the balance. Keep in mind that the redemption for the least amount of Gold Plus Rewards points is 550 for a free rental of a car during the weekend; so those 25 points will only get you marginally closer to that goal.

Thank you again, Dan!

  1. Jennifer says:

    DH did this last year, receiving the points, and his points expired anyway. After two calls to Hertz CS, they explained that a promo like that WIL NOT extend the expiration date — only rental activity — earning or burning — will.

  2. PM says:

    Hi Brian, does bonus point activity actually extend the expiration date? The reason I’m asking is that my points just expired yesterday without any warning. Awardwallet stated that my points were due to expire in 2017 but they still did due to no qualifying rental. I spoke to the Gold line and they said that bonus points do not extend the rental. I also had bonus points in January 2015.

    1. Brian Cohen says:

      As mentioned in the article, the bonus points supposedly do extend the expiration date, PM — at least, according to Daniel Eleff of Dan’s Deals; and he is usually correct with his information.

      I may just get to find out myself. Despite having rented from Hertz within the past two years, not all of the rentals occurred within regions recognized by Hertz Gold Plus Rewards and therefore do not count towards extending the expiration date of the points.

      Regardless, you may want to try calling the Gold line again and speak to a different agent about restoring your points, PM — and if you decide to do that, please post the outcome.

      1. PM says:

        Thanks Brian! I have sent e-mails to AwardWallet, Executive Customer service at Hertz & Hertz #1 Awards. Will post an update once I know more.

        1. Brian Cohen says:

          I am not sure where you are located, PM; but if it is at all possible, I would personally call via the telephone and speak to an agent.

          This is especially useful if you want to communicate with a supervisor.

          1. PM says:

            I’m located in Atlanta. I talked to several agents and one of them was helpful (or the bearer of bad news). I asked to speak with a supervisor and was told there wasn’t one. Let me try calling them again.

          2. PM says:

            Just called Hertz and got the same response. 🙁

            Have sent an e-mail to customer relations as per their advice. Will keep y’all updated. Keeping my fingers crossed!

          3. Brian Cohen says:

            Thank you, PM — and good luck to you!

          4. PM says:

            Just got a response from Hertz Executive Customer Service. Here’s what they said:

            “This in follow up to your email regarding your unused Gold Member points.

            We apologize about the verbiage in our policy causing your points to expire. Activity is supposed to pertain to rental movement though we understand this can be confusing. As a gesture of our concern we have gone ahead and reinstated the expired 1,396 Gold Member points.

            I recognize that this confusion may have caused you considerable frustration with Hertz. I hope that Hertz will have more opportunities to serve you better in the future. Thanks again for your loyalty.”

          5. Brian Cohen says:

            That is excellent news, PM; and thank you for the follow-up report.

            I suppose I will have to let Daniel Eleff of Dan’s Deals know that these bonus Hertz Gold Plus Rewards points do not extend the expiration date of points already in one’s account…

  3. Jim says:

    I also have the experience of finding that these promotional bonus points do not appear to count towards extending the expiration of Hertz Gold Plus Rewards points. I registered for and received such points two years ago (a survey bonus and a registration bonus similar to this one) and my Hertz points expired anyway the following year.

    1. Brian Cohen says:

      You and Jennifer both are citing similar experiences, Jim; and I thank you both for reporting them.

      I personally believe that the promotional bonuses should extend the date of expiration of the existing points — or, at least, warn members that they will not…
