So, in case you want to quickly get outside and enjoy the weather wherever you are, here are some super fast updates from the world of miles and points. Double Points on Hertz Rentals: I’m a… Read the Rest.

Last week Hertz reached out to me to see if I would be interested in helping them “end the summer with a bang” and give away 3,000 more Hertz points for you to use however you wish! Um, yes please. No, I don’t keep any of the points or anything else from Hertz for myself. I am always more than willing to give away Hertz points for two main… Read the Rest.
Last week Hertz and I teamed up to offer 1,500 Hertz Gold Plus Reward points to two lucky Mommy Points readers. They wanted to celebrate their new title of “Best Overall Car Rental Company” in Zagat’s 2012/13 U.S. Car Rental Survey, and I was happy to help them give away points to Mommy Points readers as a form of celebration! 1,500 Hertz points is fairly substantial as those points can… Read the Rest.
I’m back home from our trip and catching up on laundry and miles and points deals – though I am guessing that everyone reading this is more interested in the latter. So, while my laundry is drying, here are a few tidbits I have been interested today (just in case you missed them this week as well). There is a targeted 70,000 Ultimate Reward point Chase Sapphire Preferred offer… Read the Rest.

Happy Friday and Happy Birthday Weekend to my husband! Think he would be mad if he got Hertz points for his birthday?? Okay, Hertz points probably wouldn’t make a great birthday present for him, but they are still a very solid deal. Today there are three different Hertz packages for sale on the Daily Getaways website ranging from 5,000 points to 15,000 points. Free rentals start at 500 points for… Read the Rest.
I learned a few lessons today in the miles and points world that I wanted to share so you can avoid the mistakes I made. I guess in truth they weren’t really lessons learned so much as just good reminders for things I already knew. Also, I will announce the winner of the $100 United credit! 1. If you think you might want extremely inexpensive airport lounge access via the… Read the Rest.
Despite the sticker shock (hello $330!!) I experienced when we kept a Hertz reservation made with Gold Points one extra day while in Colorado a couple months ago, I still think that Hertz Gold Plus Rewards Points are pretty valuable when redeemed for expensive car rentals. Both my husband and I have Hertz Gold accounts with some points sitting in them. However, up until recently, I didn’t realize that there… Read the Rest.
