Your Chance to Win 1,000,000 Hertz Gold Plus Rewards Points Plus $10,000

The Great Gold Giveaway 2017 Sweepstakes from Hertz offers you the opportunity to win 1,000,000 Gold Plus Rewards points and $10,000.00; or you could be one of 1,100 winners of the first, second or third prizes — but you only have until Monday, December 31, 2017 at 11:59 in the evening Eastern Standard Time to enter as a participant.

Your Chance to Win 1,000,000 Hertz Gold Plus Rewards Points Plus $10,000

You are limited to one entry per person per day per Hertz Gold Plus Rewards program membership account number regardless of method of entry — and you can enter this sweepstakes two ways.

You will automatically receive one entry into the sweepstakes for each car rental completed during the sweepstakes period under your Hertz Gold Plus Rewards program membership account number. Each qualifying vehicle rental during the sweepstakes period is eligible for one entry into the sweepstakes — regardless of the duration of the rental period. All rentals must be picked up by Monday, December 31, 2017 and returned by Sunday, January 7, 2018 to be considered a qualifying vehicle rental. In the event of an overlapping vehicle rental under a single Hertz Gold Plus Rewards program account, only one of the overlapping vehicle rentals will count as an entry into the sweepstakes. You can book your car rental reservation at the official Internet web site of Hertz — although that does not seem to be required.

To enter without completing a vehicle rental, print by hand in ink on a 3″ x 5″ card your:

Full name
Complete home address with ZIP code
Home telephone number with area code
Date of birth
E-mail address — if any
Hertz Gold Plus Rewards program membership account number
