Hertz is now letting rewards members book rentals using a combination of points & cash. If you have at least 200 points then you will be given the option to pay for part of your rental using points. The break down is:
At the 200 point level you’re getting 2.5¢ per point. At the 600 level you get 5¢ per point. Normally a free weekend day starts at 550 points, so for most people this won’t be that useful I don’t think. Hertz points also don’t expire, so there isn’t as much of a hurry to use up points.
