National Car Rental’s Emerald Club has brought back their popular “One Two Free” promotion where you can one free rental day after every two qualifying rentals of two or more days on midsize cars or better from today, August 20, 2014 – January 31, 2015, at participating National Car Rental locations in the 50 United States, including the District of Columbia.  You will earn your standard Emerald Club reward benefits in addition to ONE TWO FREE points.

One Two Free

You do have to register for this promotion and you do not receive retroactive credit for rentals before you registered, so go ahead and register now just in case you have some National rentals in the next five months.  I would have loved some more free rental days to use on our recent Alaska trip as car rentals there were pricey.  Redeeming in NYC, during ski season at mountain locations, etc. could give you a very good return on your free days.

Outside of qualifying rentals, you can also earn points for bonus activities, some of which include downloading National’s mobile app, referring friends to the promotion, linking your Facebook page, and adding a GPS to the rental.  To earn points by referring friends (300 per friend, max 3000) they have to actually enroll in ONE TWO FREE and complete a qualifying rental by January 31, 2015, but that can be handy if you have some family members with rentals coming up.

You will receive 300 points per qualifying rental or 300 points every four consecutive rental days, whichever is greater. For example, a rental lasting two days = 300 points and a rental lasting eight days = 600 points.  Free rental days earned via the ONE TWO FREE promotion will expire at 11:59 p.m. on June 15, 2015 and you can redeem up to three free days at a time.

  1. I like this promo and move rentals to them from others when they run it. Question on a 2 day booking I made a week ago for September- do I need to re-book them or will they qualify?

  2. I usually book with Alamo and I have some upcoming rentals with Enterprise. I went into register with National (thought I was already). They are asking for a credit card number to join the Emerald Club. Says the fee is $. , no amount. So, is there a fee to be a member of the emerald club? Thanks for any information on this.
