Elite Status Easier to Earn in 2021; Point Expiration Extensions For Hertz Elite Members

To celebrate the new year of 2021, you can now earn elite status sooner as a member of the Hertz Gold Plus Rewards frequent renter loyalty program — plus, the expiration of Gold Plus Rewards points has been extended through at least Friday, December 31, 2021 for Hertz Gold Plus Rewards who have already earned Five Star elite status and President’s Circle elite status.

You can earn elite status in the Hertz Gold Plus Rewards frequent renter loyalty program even easier, as you can earn:

  • President’s Circle elite status after just 15 rentals — versus 20 rentals — or $3,000.00 spent
  • Five Star elite status after 10 rentals — versus 12 rentals — or $2,000.00 spent

Additionally, the expiration of points has been paused through at least Friday, December 31, 2021 for Hertz Gold Plus Rewards members who have already earned Five Star elite status and President’s Circle elite status — or longer if those members have already completed a vehicle rental within the past six months — and will not expire as long as they rent a vehicle or redeem points until the end of the year.

Normally, you need to rent a vehicle or redeem points at least once every 18 months in order to keep  points toward free rental days and upgrades active.

Hertz automatically extended loyalty elite status to Five Star and President’s Circle members through Monday, January 31, 2022 in May of 2020.

If you are not already a member, you may join as a member of the Hertz Gold Plus Rewards frequent renter loyalty program at no cost to you.

    I’m a Hertz 5-star member (it’s status from some credit card, not earned by rentals), but I did not receive an email stating that the expiration has been extended (the points are supposed to expire in February). Is this extension posted officially somewhere? How do I know if the expiration of my points has actually been extended? Thanks!

      That is a good question, Dave.

      My experience has been that I was reminded of the expiration date of my Gold Plus Rewards points via e-mail message; but that does not mean you will get one.

      I suggest you log into your Hertz Gold Plus Rewards membership account and choose Rewards Account Activity. Find the last date of activity by clicking on the pop-up under Select a month to view your Rewards Activity and finding the month in which your last activity occurred. Then add 18 months to find out your expiration date.

      Keep in mind that activity means a Gold Plus Rewards point was either earned or redeemed on a rental.

      Of course, Hertz having the expiration date listed in plain sight would be much easier; but if that method does not work, contact Hertz by sending an e-mail message, calling them via telephone, or using their official Twitter account.

      This is probably not the answer for which you were looking; but I hope this helps…
