Update 1/22/24: We updated our Current Amex offers database this morning and discovered that this offer is back again.

If you’re renting via Hertz, you’ll want to check for a targeted Amex Offer that’s good for $90 back on $350 or more. That’s a nice savings, though keep in mind that you’ll probably want to buy rental insurance if you’re paying with an Amex card, so the savings will work out to be a bit less than $90 if you otherwise would have rented with a car that includes primary CDW coverage.

Quick Thoughts

The savings here could certainly make it worth using your Amex card to pay for a rental. That said, as mentioned at the top, you’ll want to consider car rental insurance. Some Amex cards have secondary car rental coverage, which means that other insurance (like your personal car insurance) must pay out first. You’ll need to pay $19.95 or $24.95 per rental period for “premium” primary coverage. If you have no insurance (like perhaps if you don’t own a car), then secondary coverage becomes primary, but for those who own a car and have car insurance it is probably worth paying the $20 or $25 for one of the premium rental car protection packages. That reduces the value of the offer a bit for me since I would ordinarily use my wife’s my Chase Ritz-Carlton credit card or US Bank Altitude Reserve for rental cars for primary CDW coverage.

Still, even if I only value the savings at $65-$70, that’s not a bad deal. Combine this with a good targeted shopping portal offer from Capital One (I’ve recently received targeted Hertz offers for 18% back) and it could make Hertz an attractive option…..as long as you don’t get arrested. I’ve actually rented from Hertz more than any other company over the past year and have stayed out of the slammer thus far, but YMMV.

I don’t know if this is new, but it looks like Hertz status matches are getting denied if you did one within the last five years.


How about a legal services credit for when you have to get bailed out of the slammer?

[…] If you’re renting a card in the near future, you can get a little bit back via Hertz with this Amex offer running until 3/31/24. Don’t forget that you can add Primary Car Rental Insurance to an Amex card via this link starting at $19.95 per rental period otherwise you’re looking at secondary. H/T FM  […]


The Hertz website is glitchy. I booked something yesterday and the price kept jumping on the last page to $4500 from $240. I kept trying and finally got it to hold the $240 price.


I almost primarily rent with Hertz. Service is crap, but prices and options keep me going back.


I am wondering if $350 includes Hertz insurance. For ex – Can it be $250 for the rental and $100 for their damage waiver? You essentially get free damage waiver in this case. Or does the $350 amount has to be for the rental?


Time for travel bloggers to retire the Hertz – going to jail jokes.


Not until they stop the false arrests. The best part of the linked article is where the prosecutor, in moving to dismiss the charges, says, “the state has lost confidence in the reliability of the information provided,” It’s about time; I’ve long wondered why the authorities believe anything Hertz says. I won’t rent from them until I am satisfied they have fixed their tech, their culture, or whatever it is that causes these repeated travesties.


Should also come with a get out jail free card

able to split tender on payment? this way can get primary coverage using my Venture X, while simultaneously taking advantage of this offer.


Ugh, I just returned a rental today. Could have switched payment methods had I seen this offer earlier.


Adding this offer probably unlocks offers for local bail bondsmen as well.


I’ll give it a few more years until the arresting customers thing is fully out of Hertz’s system.
