Did Hertz Remove Yet Another Feature of Gold Plus Rewards With No Advance Notice or Warning?

“I’ve recently paid attention to the dollars-off redemption options. For example, 600 points for $30 off. Can be a reasonable redemption value when rates are low. If rate is $15/day, this yields two days for 600 points, versus 1500 points required under the newly-worsened reward chart. Obviously better for customer. And if Hertz corporate is concerned about redemptions on super-high-priced vehicles at peak time, this also helps protect them against that” is what veteran FlyerTalk member bedelman posted in this discussion. “Today the dollars-off redemptions are no longer appearing for me within, and also appear to be missing from…points-program. Gone for good? What a double-whammy that would be.”

When I checked, the redemption of Hertz Gold Plus Rewards points for discounts on car rentals indeed is no longer anywhere to be found at the official Internet web site of Hertz.

The following awards were not…

More Hertz Gold Plus Rewards Devaluation: Point Usage Cancellation Policy Now in Effect

The exact verbiage of the new point usage cancellation policy is as follows…

Massive Devaluation of Hertz Gold Plus Rewards 2019 With No Notice or Warning Whatsoever

“A heads up on the Hertz deal next week if you were going to cover it. In past years, this was an amazing deal and I purchased it several times. But Hertz just implemented (last day or two unannounced) one of the biggest devaluations I’ve ever seen (awards costs increased 50-67% across the board). The deal for next week is now completely inaccurate and misleading in its description (not their fault – Hertz did this completely underhandedly). As example, the 16,500 rewards now costs 25,000. The 13,200 reward doesn’t even exist as weekend rewards were eliminated. A lot of people try for that one but should be warned . . .”

That warning was posted by…

Better Deal Just Announced: $7.19 Per Day For Rental Cars Leaving Florida One Way — Spring 2019

When I first reported in this article on Friday, March 22, 2019 that “this year, the going rate is no less expensive than $14.95 per day — and that rate is only offered by Avis Rent A Car System and Budget Rent A Car System”, Hertz had not yet tossed its hat into the discounted drive-out from Florida for 2019…

…but if you are able to position yourself to rent a car from Florida and drive it out, now is the time to do so: how about a rental rate of as low as $7.19 per day for rental cars leaving Florida one way Spring 2019 to much of the eastern United States — such as Atlanta or Boston, for example?
