Take advantage of bonus mileage opportunities when they present themselves. This is the offer I’ll be using for all my short-term rentals through the end of 2016.
The Best of the Rest is my effort to summarize all the travel/miles & points stories that interested me on a daily basis but didn’t have time to write about in length. Culled from over 100 blogs/authors I follow, some are passed along without comment, while I add my analysis to others. This is your shortcut to find out what’s going on in the travel world without having to read dozens of travel blogs to get all the best info.
Today’s Daily Getaway features a discount on Hertz Gold Plus Rewards points. In case you’re not familiar, Daily Getaways are daily deals sponsored by the US Travel Association. Some are better than others, so you need to think about whether you can take full advantage of the offer before buying. For the more popular offers, they will sell out quickly, which means being around right when they go on sale each day at 1:00 pm EDT. Some offers will sell out in hours, some in minutes.

Hertz is running a promotion that features double Gold Plus Rewards points through December 15, 2015 on all rentals. They’re also giving away ten vacations that feature airfare plus a 3-day car rental. It’s pretty straight forward. Register here, and then you get one entry for every rental between now and December 15, 2014. You also get an extra entry for adding things like Neverlost and satellite radio.
The newest Daily Getaways are from Hertz and Choice Privileges. Today’s deal is Hertz Gold Plus Rewards. These are solid deals for a variety of different types of cars and rental lengths.

Wyndham Rewards is selling points as part of Daily Getaways today. Hertz is selling points tomorrow. The Wyndham deal is okay if you have a specific redemption in mind, but don’t buy speculatively. The Hertz deal is a solid value for a variety of Hertz car rentals.
Hertz Gold Plus Rewards was a solid plus for Hertz loyalists when the new format was released almost 2 years ago. If you’re considering purchasing one of the Hertz Daily Getaways offers, this information may be of assistance.

Since then, and I’m not 100% sure when, Hertz Gold Plus Rewards changed the prices […]
For the miles and points junkie, it’s all about the deal. With any deal, bigger is always better, right? That’s our goal. Find the biggest deals. The game keeps changing which is what keeps it interesting. I recently stumbled upon a wrinkle in the Hertz Gold Plus Rewards program that can provide such value. I wrote about the Hertz Gold Plus Rewards program in the middle of last year and found some good (though not great) value. The play there was mostly about diversity but I did find some good […]
