Update: Sold out!
With Daily Getaways you can purchase discounted travel packages, but you have to be really quick. At 1pm EDT every weekday from now through 5/10 there is 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.
There are 3 Hertz packages that will be available to purchase at 1pm:
1. 5,500 points for $280 (5.09 cents per point)
2. 13,200 points for $560 (4.24 cents per point)
3. 16,500 points for $698 (4.23 cents per point)
Be sure to have your Hertz Rewards number ready in order to purchase a package.
-A free week rental is 2,750 points, so package 1 would be enough for 2 weeks of rentals at a cost of $20 per day.
-Package 2 would be enough points for 4 free weeks (11K) and a 4 day rental over a weekend (2.2K). That’s 32 rental days at a cost of $17.50 per day.
Package 2 is also enough for two 4 day weekend rentals of a prestige collection car. That’s 8 days of rentals at a cost of $70 per day.
-A free rental week of a prestige collection car is 8,250 points, so package 3 would be enough for 2 weeks of rentals at a cost of $49.85 per day.
Package 3 is also enough for 6 weeks of free rentals. That’s 42 rental days at a cost of $16.62 per day.
There are blackout dates for these awards, though you can use double points to rent during a blackout as well.
Hertz points don’t expire as long as you have earned or redeemed points on a rental every 24 months.
Will you try to buy? Or are these packages too much effort for too little reward? For many locations you may be better off spending the time figuring out the lowest Priceline bid that they would accept for your rental…
