I have rented from Hertz Local Edition locations numerous times in recent years. In fact, I literally saved hundreds of dollars simply by strategically renting a vehicle at a Hertz Local Edition location — with virtually no inconvenience to me — instead of from the location at an airport.

I personally would not go out of my way just to attempt to win a Visa gift card — even if it is worth $500.00 — but this could be a potentially good opportunity for you if you intend to rent vehicles from Hertz Local Edition locations anyway…

…and you can also enter as a participant during the promotion period if you are willing to spend a few moments of your time — as well as the cost of a stamp, paper and an envelope — each day to mail in an entry…
