Recently Hertz reached out to me to see if I would be interested in promoting their recent achievement of being voted “Best Overall Car Rental Company” in Zagat’s 2012/13 U.S. Car Rental Survey. To celebrate they wanted to give away Hertz Gold Plus Rewards Points to readers of this site. Valuable Hertz Gold Plus Rewards Points for readers of Mommy Points?! Yes, sign me up, please. In case you were curious, all of the points are going to the two contest winners, I just get the satisfaction of knowing two of you got some great points for free!
In all honesty, my husband and I use Hertz for the majority of our car rentals, as we have good luck with getting decent cars, and really like using Hertz points for free rentals. We have used Hertz points to rent a SUV during ski season in Colorado, and that resulted in huge savings. Well, until we turned it in a day late, but that was our own doing………..
Anyway, Hertz is offering one lucky reader the chance to win 1,500 Hertz Gold Plus Rewards Points for a weekend family road trip! In case you aren’t yet familiar with Hertz Gold Plus Rewards Points, 1500 points = 2 free weekend days on specially vehicles for Standard Rewards. Available on Luxury, Mid-sized SUV, Minivans, or ConvertiblesPlus, Hertz will also send you a Zagat Guidebook to find the best restaurants to try with your family while traveling. Or, you can save the Zagat rated restaurants for when you have “date night” without the kiddos!
Some of the recent innovations that Hertz is excited about include:
· Hertz Gold Choice / “Choose Control”: Change your mind? Hertz Gold Choice gives the customer the power to keep the car they reserved or simply choose another, something no other car rental brand offers.
· Hertz’s ExpressRent Kiosks / “Acceler-Rental”: To help you travel faster with your family, Hertz ExpressRent Interactive Kiosks let customers rent a car without a reservation and without a line. 153 Kiosks are live at both airport and Hertz Local Edition locations.
If you would like to add 1,500 Hertz Gold Plus Rewards points to your account, just leave a comment in this post and tell me where you would like to take your family this summer and why by June 18, 2012. Two winners will be selected at random, and the Hertz Gold Plus Rewards will be deposited directly into your membership account (Not a Hertz Gold member? It’s free to join here and/or Hertz can work with you to set this up).
* Available on Luxury (Lincoln Towncar or similar), MidSize SUV (Ford Explorer or similar), Minivans (Ford Freestar or similar), or Convertible (Ford Mustang Convertible or similar). A weekend rental is valid for a minimum of 2 and maximum of 4 days beginning no earlier than noon Thursday and ending no later than Monday. Car must be returned to original renting location.
