Instant 25 Free Hertz Gold Plus Rewards Points Just for Registering for Spring Bonus Promotion — Or Not
A s a member of the Hertz Gold Plus Rewards frequent renter loyalty program, you can earn double points on your first qualifying car rental — then earn triple points on the remainder of your car rentals — through Thursday, June 30, 2016 in 15 countries on four continents; and the only limit of the number of bonus points you can earn is based on the number of vehicles you rent for a full day during the time that this promotion is in effect.
If you have earned elite level status with Hertz Gold Plus Rewards, your tier bonuses — ten percent for Five Star and 25 percent for President’s Circle — will also be double or tripled if the qualifications of the car rental are met. No other bonuses will be doubled or tripled.
You will also earn 200 bonus points for each item purchased during your car rental — the bonus points will not be doubled or tripled — including entertainment and fuel products such as:
- SiriusXM Satellite Radio
- Hertz NeverLost
- Fuel Purchase Option
What About Instant 25 Free Hertz Gold Plus Rewards Points Just for Registering?
As with past promotions — such as this winter promotion from January of this year — you can earn 25 bonus points simply by registering for this offer, which is required prior to the rental of your first vehicle in order to participate in this promotion; but unlike past promotions, there is this disclaimer: “Only select Hertz Gold Plus Rewards members are eligible for this offer.”
Countries in Which This Promotion is Valid
This offer is valid on paid car rentals picked up through June 30, 2016, at participating Hertz locations in:
- United States — including Puerto Rico and the United States Virgin Islands
- United Kingdom
- New Zealand
Select Terms and Conditions
You must be a legal resident of the United States and Canada who is 21 years of age or older in order to participate in this promotion; and you must select to receive Hertz Gold Plus Rewards points in your profile and on your rental car reservation. If another frequent travel loyalty program is selected in your profile instead, you will not qualify to participate in this promotion.
Any car class and rental length qualifies for this promotion — as long as it is a paid rental for a full day and earning Hertz Gold Plus Rewards points on the transaction. This offer cannot be used with Pre-Pay Rates, Tour Rates, or any other promotion other than your CDP#.
You can only use one PC# per vehicle rental if the rental qualifies for a promotion code.
If you use a corporate booking tool, you can take advantage of this promotion as long as the corporate booking tool includes your Hertz Gold Plus Rewards member number.
The Hertz Gold Plus Rewards program awards you one point per qualifying United States dollar spent — or its equivalent — in the currency paid for the vehicle you rented. Bonus points will be added to your account up to ten days from the rental return; and the points can be redeemed immediately. Only paid rentals will qualify for this promotion. Advance reservations are required. Modifying your reservation may result in a change in your rental car rate; and modifications could invalidate this offer, which has no cash value and cannot be combined with any other bonus offer or other promotion.
Other terms and conditions apply.
What apparently is also no longer unclear when comparing this year to last year is that “Hertz has updated their expiration policy to require points to be earned or redeemed on a rental every 24 months, other activity no longer qualifies”, according to what was posted over at the official Internet web site of Dan’s Deals; but the bonus Hertz Gold Plus Rewards points which I have earned simply for registering in past promotions have not expired — as of yet, anyway.
I received the e-mail message alerting me to this promotion — but does that mean that you cannot earn those 25 bonus points or participate in this promotion if you did not receive the e-mail message? The only way to find out is to try registering for this promotion, as the worst that can happen is that your participation will be denied — especially when there have been times in the past where I have qualified for promotions in which I never received an e-mail message.
