This is a quick out-of-band post to mention that I just learned tonight that one of the benefits that comes with my Platinum American Express is a free membership in Hertz #1 Gold. There are a lot of ways to get that membership for free, but I didn’t know that I already met one 🙂
Incidentally, Hertz is also running a deal right now that nets you free #1 Gold even without the AmEx Platinum through 9/30. This comes with +500 bonus points as well, which is enough for a totally free weekend day rental. Certainly worth it–even if you just want to try out a new ride for a day.
