Continue Earning Tons Of United Miles By Renting Cars With Hertz

United has had a long running promotion where you can earn a pile of miles for each Hertz rental car you book via the United website. I think it started in 2015 and has been repeatedly extended pretty much ever since. Apparently it’s a good deal for United and Hertz, which is great because it’s most definitely a good deal for many of us. In fact, I’d argue that it’s the best deal out there on short term car rentals.

As best I can tell, the deal this time is the same as in the past. United Premier Platinum, 1K, and Global Services members earn 2,750 miles per rental, while United Gold and Silver members do almost as well, with 2,500 miles. Those lucky enough not to fly United on a regular basis can earn 2,000 miles per rental.

Even though I prefer to rent with National — where I prefer to select my car, or minivan, from the Aisle when traveling with my family — I’m more than happy to go with Hertz when traveling for work or times when the vehicle just doesn’t matter as much.
