Last week I wrote about the exceptionally generous car rental promotion that SAS is running. SAS EuroBonus is celebrating their 25th anniversary, and is offering 5,000 bonus points per rental with Hertz. As the terms were originally published, there was no minimum requirement for how long your rental had to be — any rental qualified.
As I explained, this opened up opportunities to acquire SAS EuroBonus points for a fraction of a penny. I gave the example of a place that has cars for $22.60 per day all-in, meaning you could earn SAS points for just under 0.5 cents each.
I suspect some people are just taking advantage of this promotion casually, and are crediting Hertz rentals that they’d make anyway to SAS EuroBonus instead of to another program . However, others are probably going out of their way to rent Hertz cars. If you live near a Hertz location that has reasonably priced rentals, this is a great opportunity.
