[YMMV] Free Hertz Gold Plus Rewards President’s Circle Status

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Hertz is offering free Hertz Gold Plus Rewards President’s Circle status

Our Verdict

I think this is supposed to be for select employer groups only, but it’s an open link so it might work for everybody. If you’re an existing member you do need to e-mail goldpromotions@hertz.com so best case scenario I can only see this working for new accounts. This is not the first (or second) time Hertz has offered this status for free though. If you do end up getting the upgraded status then read this post on how to leverage it for high status with other car rental agencies.

Requires a CC to enroll and Visa GC was not accepted (claimed it was a debit card). Hard pass on give CC info before I make a purchase…

That’s the usual requirement for Hertz Gold Plus rewards.
(Might also be the case for any rental car program that allows you to skip the counter?)

Yeah what would be the point of a frequent renters program if you still have to fill out the information every time?

Thanks Will, new member and got this: You’re Now a Hertz Gold Plus Rewards Member, don’t see any “President’s Circle” there so i guess i’m not part of the presidency group lol.

On an unrelated note, AA sent me an email yesterday for a free upgrade to gold

If it’s free, why do you have to enter a credit card #?

Since a large part of Hertz’s program is streamlining the rental process. You do not need to show a credit card and in many airports do not go in any line.

New Account – Gold Plus only, no President’s Circle

If you recently got National Elite, Hertz will status match.

What will they match it to? 5-Star or Presidents?

Thanks

They matched me to Presidents Circle.

Awesome! I just submitted my match request yesterday. That would be pretty sweet. With the Amex Plat discount, I’ve been getting some excellent prices compared to National and others. Hopefully the car choices are better with the Presidents circle status with the Hertz Ultimate Choice.

You can also get National Executive Elite status using this link https://legacy.nationalcar.com/en_US/car-rental/partners/partner-details/affinity/AmexExecElite.html It is suppose to be for Amex cardholders, but works for everyone. The status is given instantly and lasts until 2020

Easy Executive Elite. Should be able to match President’s Circle.

It seems like the rental car status have enough frequency (every month or two) and domino effect that it might be worth having a consolidated page that gets updated similar to bank accounts and CCs w/out being too much LOE…. just a thought

This worked great! While I only got Gold, I did realize that I am missing my driver’s license! Trying to sign up saved my a$$! Haha.
