A couple weeks ago I posted about a pretty solid Hertz car rental deal where you could earn up to 2,750 bonus United miles. That was very good, but if you happen to have a need for a Hertz rental by October 15th, you can potentially earn even more United miles. I’m still out of town with my family, so apologies in advance that I haven’t been able to run as many tests with this as normal before posting, but the offer I received via email said that I can earn 5,000 bonus United miles with a Hertz two day rental and 7,500 bonus miles for a Hertz three day rental. This is in addition to the regular miles awarded based on elite status and number of days rented (see previous post on Hertz linked above for more details on that).
Even though it doesn’t say so in the terms and conditions, it is possible this is targeted to some extent so I can’t swear this will work for everyone, but I wanted to share the promotion codes and all just in case.
Terms and conditions:
Advance reservation required. To qualify for the 5,000 bonus miles offer: Rental must be for a mid-size or larger car for 2 or more days, for pickup at a participating Hertz corporate airport or off-airport location in the U.S. by October 15, 2015. Discount code (CDP) 62455, promotion code (PC) 306644 and MileagePlus number must be included during booking. To qualify for the 7,500 bonus mile offer: Rental must be for a full-size or larger car for 3 or more days, for pickup at a participating Hertz corporate airport or off-airport location in the U.S. by October 15, 2015. Discount code (CDP) 62455, promotion code (PC) 306832 and MileagePlus number must be included during booking. Hertz age, driver, credit and qualifying rate restrictions for the renting location apply. Taxes, tax reimbursement, governmental surcharges and optional services, such as refueling, are extra. Modifying your reservation may result in a change in your rate and/or invalidate this offer. This offer has no cash value and may not be used with tour rate rates, insurance/dealer replacement rates, pre-paid tour rates, or combined with any other offer, discount, coupon or promotion. The savings of up to 40% apply to time and mileage charges only; discount varies by rental date, location and vehicle type. Frequent Flyer Surcharge of $0.75 per day may apply. Miles will not be awarded on travel industry rates, wholesale tour packages, insurance/dealer replacement, any other promotional rates or group travel. If the number of award miles earned by a member for any Hertz rental exceeds 500 miles, the 500 base award miles will post to the member’s account first, and any miles earned in excess of 500 miles will separately post within 5 business days.
Miles accrued, awards, and benefits issued are subject to change and are subject to the rules of the United MileagePlus® program, including without limitation the Premier® program (the “MileagePlus Program”), which are expressly incorporated herein. Please allow 6-8 weeks after completed qualifying activity for miles to post to your account. United® may change the MileagePlus Program including, but not limited to, rules, regulations, travel awards and special offers or terminate the MileagePlus Program at any time and without notice. United and its subsidiaries, affiliates and agents are not responsible for any products or services of other participating companies and partners. Taxes and fees related to award travel are the responsibility of the member. Bonus award miles, award miles and any other miles earned through non-flight activity do not count toward qualification for Premier status unless expressly stated otherwise. The accumulation of mileage or Premier status or any other status does not entitle members to any vested rights with respect to the MileagePlus Program. All calculations made in connection with the MileagePlus Program, including without limitation with respect to the accumulation of mileage and the satisfaction of the qualification requirements for Premier status, will be made by United Airlines® and MileagePlus in their discretion and such calculations will be considered final.
