Register for the Right Hertz 550 Point Offer and Will It Double With the LDW Offer?

Hertz’s Fall 2016 promotion nets an instant 25 points (that do not extend point expiration), and 550 points for one qualifying rental pick-up by 11/13/16. 550 points is enough for 1 free weekend day. Register here.

For the 550 points, you must select to earn Hertz Gold Plus Rewards, not frequent flyer miles. The qualifying rental must not be pre-paid, must be over $25, and must be at participating locations. I have not found the location list, though the countries are here. It is a one-time bonus for this promotion.

Beware, the public link at hertzfallrewards.com is the 1-rental offer. By mail Hertz is sending a 2-rental offer for the same promotion. Once you have registered for one offer, you cannot register for the other. Pay attention!

However what may double is a seemingly targeted offer for 550 points per rental to 12/31/16 when opting for Loss Damage Waiver (LDW). There is no registration page, though the terms are here.

Netting 1,100 points (2 weekend days) for a 1-day rental is tempting. As always, compare with other rates. Hertz Gold Plus Rewards rates are often high. I usually do much better price-wise with the Hertz United rates that as a 1K I earn 2,750 United miles per rental.
