Hertz is currently offering rentals for $7.99 per day one-way from Florida and Arizona to select markets between April 17th, 2017 and June 15, 2017. Unlimited miles are included and rentals are limited to a maximum of 14 days.
The $7.99 pricing is available across many car classes, so you are not limited to the smallest economy cars. Availability may vary depending on location and dates, but here is what I found from Key West, FL to Boston for May 12 to May 17, 2017 (rates and classes were identical from Phoenix to Seattle):
Pick up and drop off locations are limited to specific locations as follows:

Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Jacksonville, Key West, Miami, Orlando, Sarasota, Tallahassee, Tampa, West Palm Beach
One-way drop off locations for rentals originating in Florida:

I had trouble finding availability to some destinations out of Arizona. While I had no trouble finding the $7.99 one-ways from Phoenix to Seattle, I could not find any dates to return to Bozeman or Billings, Montana despite both airports being listed in the eligible drop-off list. I thought that either drop-off point would have been perfect for an early summer visit to Yellowstone National Park on the way, but I wasn’t able to find dates to either of those airports (or Boise for that matter).
Still, this annual promotion can be great for a road trip. Check the full terms and look for dates here.

Yup, these deals from Florida going north are fabulous this year…. yet fyi, the great Hertz rate at $8 is actually beatable. Just reserved an 11 day rental (via Budget) from Melbourne FL to central Virginia. Rate was $4.95 day (from 1 day to 3 weeks) with a few taxes/fees added (namely a $2/da Florida airport doozy)… still, the whopping total came to… $94 for 11 days (with aarp discount to boot) Similar deals being offered for Florida one-ways out, via Avis & Enterprise Car rentals — yup, under $5.00 a day.
