With Daily Getaways you can purchase discounted travel packages, but you have to be really quick for the best deals. At 1pm EDT every weekday from now through 6/4 there will be a new offering. The best deals will sell out in seconds, so you need to be waiting on the page at 12:59pm and refreshing the page.
Don’t forget to use a card like Chase Sapphire Preferred, Sapphire Reserve, or Citi Premier to earn double or triple points as these deals post as a travel related charge! These deals will also qualify for the $300 annual Sapphire Reserve travel credit!
There are 3 Hertz packages that will be available to purchase at 1pm:
1. 7,500 points for $280 (3.73 cents per point)
2. 20,000 points for $560 (2.8 cents per point)
3. 25,000 points for $698 (2.79 cents per point)
These packages are advertised for specific car classes, but in fact they are just the points as listed above and can be used for any award.
Hertz just devalued their points without providing any warning and they were forced to increase the points in today’s Daily Getaway to make up for that. This can be a good deal, but don’t stock up on points for the long-term as they can always devalue again and it will likely be without notice.
Be sure to have your Hertz Rewards number ready in order to purchase a package.
