Hertz Expiration Change: Points Expire After 18 Months Instead Of 24

This change actually took place on January 1st, 2019 but I (and I assume many others) completely missed it. Hertz points now expire after 18 months of inactivity, previously they expired after 24 months of inactivity. Hertz did include this change in e-mails to customers regarding changes for the 2019 year, but I do think it’s worth repeating. Frequent Miler has a post on how to keep these points alive for those interested.

Are they enforcing this? My wife hasn’t had activity in over 36 months but her 100 pts haven’t expired

Pretty sucky change, but if you know about it, it’s not a big deal. Frankly, I think Hertz’s service and quality is inferior to National’s Emerald Club, but National has been significantly raising its prices and discouraging leisure travellers (high weekend rates) the past year or two. It caused me to buy more Hertz points in the annual “Daily Getaways” promo. But since I tend to use Hertz at least every few months, I won’t be at risk of forfeiture.

If you are a member of the e-Rewards survey program, you can also use your “dollars” to purchase Hertz points. I believe that counts as an earning that extends the expiration (correct me if I’m wrong).

Can you still credit Hertz points to airline or hotels? Won’t have to worry about them expiring that way.
