Save Up to 78 Percent on the Purchase of Hertz Gold Plus Rewards Points With Daily Getaways — May 29, 2019

You can save up to 78 percent on the purchase of points packages with Hertz through the Daily Getaways of Wednesday, May 29, 2019 at 1:00 in the afternoon Eastern Daylight Time — and you have three different offers from which to choose:

Save Up to 78 Percent on the Purchase of Hertz Gold Plus Rewards Points With Daily Getaways — May 29, 2019

The dates of travel are valid anytime.

Keep in mind that no more than one set of points purchased through this offer are allowed per Hertz member number. A maximum limit of three sets of points is allowed per Hertz membership number across all Hertz offers.

Points do not expire as long as you have any Hertz Gold Plus Rewards program activity during the prior 18 months. Activity is defined as a member either having earned or redeemed Hertz Gold Plus Rewards points on the rental of a vehicle.

Other terms and conditions apply with all packages.

This deal is not without controversy, as a massive devaluation occurred with the Hertz Gold Plus Rewards program with no notice or advance warning last week, with which the redemption of points towards vehicle rental rewards increased in cost by up to 81.82 percent — and the original offer was still intact until Wednesday, May 22, 2019:

  • 5,500 Gold Plus Rewards points for $280.00 — a savings of 75 percent and enough for renting a vehicle for one week
  • 13,200 Gold Plus Rewards points for $560.00 — a savings of 78 percent and enough for renting a vehicle from the Prestige Collection for one weekend
  • 16,500 Gold Plus Rewards points for $698.00 — a savings of 78 percent and enough for renting a vehicle from the Prestige Collection for one week

Summary

Although 130 packages of points are being offered, the devaluation of the Hertz Gold Plus Rewards frequent renter loyalty program was so badly mishandled that some members have been publicly vowing to never rent from Hertz again. This debacle is a textbook example of how not to implement a negative change to what is supposed to be a loyalty program.

How well the packages of points will sell is unknown at this time; but if you are not averse to purchasing Hertz Gold Plus Rewards points, this offer is still a good one — especially as the cost of renting a standard vehicle for one week decreased by $35.00 when the offer was changed.

    Apparently not enough people are angry over the devaluation. All the packages are sold out.

      I am not surprised, Andre, because the cost of one of those packages did decrease.
