TORONTO — National Car Rental is once again recognizing its Emerald Club loyalty members by launching its annual ‘Rent Rent Reward’ promotion.
Effective immediately, the promotion offers registered Emerald Club members one free rental day for every two qualifying rentals. Each free rental day covers base rate (time and mileage) only. Bonus points towards free days can be earned for additional rental and non-rental activities such as renting through National’s app.
New this year is a ‘surprise’ mid-promotion bonus that includes a one-time bonus of 100 points.
Points can be accumulated until Feb. 29, 2020 and redeemed until June 15, 2020.
“The annual ‘Rent Rent Reward’ promotion is our way of showing our appreciation for the loyalty and support of our Emerald Club members,” said Frank Thurman, vice president of marketing for National. “We want to help new and existing members earn more free rental days, while experiencing award-winning convenience and efficiency when they’re on the road.”
Free days earned for qualifying rentals through the promotion are awarded in addition to a member’s chosen rewards earnings (frequent traveller miles/points or rental credits).
Registered members receive one free rental day for every 600 points accrued during the promotion period, and every qualifying rental is worth 300 points. Additional bonus points can be earned through both rental and non-rental activities, including:
Members can register for the promotion at emeraldclubpromos.com/rentrentreward2019.
