Hertz Points Expiring - Ideas
« on: November 11, 2019, 08:02:00 PM »
Does buying an extra sweepstakes ticket for 100 pts. extend the life of your remaining points?
or is there another easy way to extend the life of my 4500 pts? (I just got the warning email that they will expire 2/6/20)

Book an award rental for a year out.

You need to have an actual reservation for them to not expire. If you make a reservation and then cancel it, it will not reset the clock for your points.

Thank You. I just did. How long do I wait to cancel?

So make another award res for a year out before you cancel the first?

Point Usage Terms & Conditions
Quote
Any changes to a reservation booked with Gold Plus Reward points may impact the rental charges
and point redemption. If a reservation which was booked with points is cancelled within 24 hours of
booking, all points will be returned to the members account. If a reservation which was booked
using points is cancelled more than 24 hours before the pickup time the following points will be
forfeited: If a Gold member, 50% of the points used toward the booking will be forfeited;
@Dan, do you mean instead of cancelling, to keep on modifying until needed?

I have a bit of time to work with so I tried @Dan 's original idea to see what would happen. This is a screenshot from my hertz account we"ll see if they send me a two month warning (which they should if @Dr Moose is right) or if it worked.

I see what you mean. So what's my best option, rent a car that I don't need to save the rest of my points for next summer?

Strange, last hertz activity was on 1/1/18, for some reason I thought 18 months from them would give me till 2020 (a mistake) on 7/20 I booked a rental for a day, and cancelled. (points technically should have been expired already).

Comes sometime in august, and all my points are gone... (About 4k :'( :'( :'()

Do they reinstate?
Hertz is a scam!!!

No longer does anything but a completed rental extend one's points.... Wow am I glad my account "only" has 5k points and I didn't win a daily getaways package that I tried to get a few times...

"For your convenience, our point expiration policy is included in the terms when members accept our terms and conditions to become a member of our Hertz Gold Plus Rewards program. The policy is also listed on our website under the FAQs. The 18 months expiration policy of our points now is solely based on memberís rental activity in the prior 18 months.

Therefore a booked reservation, bonus, redeeming or transferring points are not considered rental activity since it has not been used on a rental. These ways cannot extend your expiration date for another 18 months.

With the new changes to our Loyalty Program this year, it has altered the way we are able to credit points based on our new expiration policy. Consequently, without rental activity, meaning a completed rental attached in your points account with your Loyalty number on the reservation and rental before your expiration date, to extend your points for another 18 months or your points will expire. No points can be credited."

Do rentals in Israel that earn zero points but show up in your profile count to extend activity?
