National Emerald Club is back with their most lucrative promotion, One Two Free.
The promotion is valid for rentals between August 20, 2014, and January 31, 2015. Registration is required prior to the first rental in order to qualify.
Through this promotion you earn a free one day rental after every two rentals in the US of a midsize or larger car lasting at least two days. There’s no limit to the number of free rentals you can earn.
This is such a great promotion because you can rent a car in a cheap location for two sets of two days, and then redeem that free day rental in a more expensive market. Rental car costs are highly variable, and it’s not unusual to see the cost of rentals differ exponentially (much like hotel rooms in New York City vs. Topeka). As a result you can potentially get more than a 100% return on your rentals through this promotion.
Earned free day rentals should post to your Emerald Club account within five business days.
The free rentals can be redeemed for rentals through June 15, 2015, and you can’t use more than three rental certificates per redemption.
I’m still learning with rental cars since I tend to take Uber or public transportation most places, but it does seem like there’s quite a bit of value to be had if the “game” is played right.
