My friends over at National Car Rental want to spread the word about their new “1, 2, Free” car rental promotion by having one Mommy Points’ reader win a $100 gas card. With gas prices the way they are, there is no way I could say no to their gracious offer! Plus, their promotion can be a pretty good deal if you need to rent some cars between now and January 31st.
I do not personally receive anything for participating in this giveaway……other than the satisfaction of knowing one of you will get a free gas card, and all of you will learn about a new rental car promo!
1, 2, Free National Car Promo Details:
Emerald Club members (their frequent renter program) earn one free rental day for every two qualifying rentals between August 22 and January 31, 2012. Qualifying rentals must be in the United States, last at least two days, and be in a mid-size car or larger.
You have to register for this promotion before making your reservation in order for it to count towards this promo. You must be an Emerald Club member to register, but registering for the Emerald Club automatically registers you for this promo. It is free and just takes a minute. You can join Emerald Club here.
The Terms and Conditions for this promo say that this offer can’t be combined with any other discounts, so make sure to choose the best deal for your family. If you have previous reservations, you can always cancel them and make a new reservation (after registering for this promo) in order for it to count towards the promo. Of course, make sure you aren’t going to end up paying more than you were originally scheduled to pay if you go this route. You can then use your free days until June 25, 2012 on a compact through full-size car. No more than three free days can be used on one reservation. Rewards are non-transferable. Awards earned will be sent out every 1-2 weeks starting September 2nd. You will be able to redeem your earned rewards by going to emeraldclubpromos.com/12Free11
You can also earn free days by referring your friends to the Emerald Club program. If they make a qualifying rental by January 31st you will earn a free rental day. A maximum of ten free days can be earned this way.
If you have elite status with Avis or Hertz, National will match your status for free. See chart below for details.

I know for us, we need rental cars now that we have Little C WAY more than we did when it was just the two of us vacationing. We just have too much gear to hop in and out of cabs like we used to. For example, it was very helpful to have a rental car while we vacationing at Disney in Orlando earlier this year! We’re even getting one when we head to Vegas next year.
