National Car Rental is back again this year with their “1, 2, FREE” promotion and is giving travelers the possibility to earn a free rental day after two car rentals or after earning 600 points. To earn a free rental day, just rent a midsize or larger vehicle for two days or longer twice. The promotion runs August 20, 2014 through January 31, 2015 and you must register in order to partake in this promotion. Also note that retroactive credit will not be honored for rentals completed before registering, so be sure to register sooner than later.
In addition to renting cars, there are a slew of other ways to earn points towards a free rental day. For example, you can either rent a midsize care or larger twice for two consecutive days to earn a free rental day or earn 600 points. To earn points, take part in any of the bonus offers that include 300 points for referring a friend or earn between 25 and 75 points for completed activities such as downloading the mobile app, going paperless, renting via the mobile app, or connect with National via Facebook. In addition, for those travelers who rent cars for more than 2 days, do not fret, National has your covered! ALL rentals earn 300 points for every four consecutive days! For example, if you rent a car for eight days, you will earn 600 points, the equivalent to one FREE rental day!
This promotion is honestly my favorite rental car promotion for the year, as travelers can maximize points and mileage earning opportunities during this promotion as the One Two Free promo stacks on top of regular earning rates. Meaning if you usually earn air miles for rentals, you still will! This is a prime example of a double dip bonus opportunity as James talked out in his most recent post.

I LOVE this promotion and LOVE renting with National. Come check out their easy aisle access which allows customers to skip the line and drive off the lot in minutes! Never be stuck with a rental car you don’t want to drive again and enjoy the aisle self selection!
