    Does the rental have to start on or after Aug 20, or if I return on Aug 20 do I get my first credit?

    So if I understand this correctly; you can't use any couponID or contractID... and you have credit your stays to national?

    yes to latter.

    I've used many different coupons & contract codes (in the past), was there something in this year's T&Cs that makes you ask the question?

    If you are a member you can always call and ask them. I'm hoping that again this year I will be able to use different coupons and contract codes. I always take and pay for the miles. I'm thinking their T&C mean no discounts to the contract code prices.
    I kinda want to be fast out of the gate on this promotion. Last year was my first participation, and I was pleased with the results.

    Below are the T&Cs, I'm not seeing what you are stating, they do mention discounts but nothing about coupons, I believe it is what 2soonold posted
    Terms & Conditions
    One Free Rental Day will be awarded for every two qualifying rentals made after the date on which the member has registered and which occur between August 20, 2012, and January 31, 2013. Credit will not be given for rentals made prior to a member's registration date. A qualifying rental is the paid rental, via the Emerald Club®, of a Midsize or larger vehicle at participating National Car Rental locations in the 50 United States, including the District of Columbia, for a period of two or more consecutive days during the promotion.

    Earned Free Rental Day fulfillment will begin on September 10, 2012, (solely by email to the email address provided at the time of registration) and thereafter will occur within 1–2 weeks after the second qualifying rental. To redeem a Free Rental Day, visit emeraldclubpromos.com/12Free/2012 to view your free day certificates, click redeem and then rent a Compact through Fullsize car starting after September 10, 2012, and before June 16, 2013. To take advantage of this offer, make a reservation at least 24 hours in advance. No more than three Free Rental Days may be redeemed toward one rental of three or more days. Unfortunately, we cannot combine this offer with any other discount and cannot apply the offer to a previous or existing reservation. All standard rental qualifications apply. Be aware that taxes, surcharges, recovery and recoupment fees and other charges may apply, and that optional products and services (such as damage waiver and additional driver fees) are extra charges. Please check your auto insurance policy and/or credit card agreement for rental vehicle coverage. The availability of this offer is limited to participating U.S. locations and is subject to change without notice. Blackout dates may also apply. We cannot accept the coupon if it has been purchased, bartered or sold for cash.

    Referrers of friends and colleagues through our email form and social media links will earn a maximum of ten Free Rental Days, regardless of how many friends and colleagues enroll. In order to receive credit, referred friends and colleagues must use the email address provided by the referring party at time of enrollment and conduct a rental by January 31, 2013.

    To be eligible for the complimentary credit toward a Free Rental Day, you must electively opt in to receive emails from National. Offer expires January 31, 2013, and is valid for new opt–ins only.

    Darn, and I thought that my $77/week rental in FLL would count...

    I noticed that when making a reservation, it adds a code into the IATA# box though...

    It should count as long as it's in the proper time period and you're registered. However when you redeem the free day you can't use a discount coupon along with the free day.

    There's a work around on this one -- just book a new reservation for the same dates (and maybe even get a better rate!)

    So we can use discount codes on the qualifying rentals, but not the free period?

    yes to first part of your question but I'm missing the 2nd part your question as to why you would need/use a discount code on the free period as it is free.

    and of course the flipside could be the rate is far worse than originally booked, but your point remains valid as one should always check periodically to see if a better rate comes up.

    The starting date wasn't in the pre-registration e-mail nor in the pre-registration response.

    Last year's start date was Aug 20.

    Anyone know this year's start date for National's 1 2 free promo? (I forgot to notice when I registered earlier this year)

    When I was most recently on the phone with Emerald Club support (qualifying Enterprise rentals have stopped processing), I was told mid-September. Just received Executive status a few months ago, so I am not pre-registered as of yet.

    & you were correct!

    ONE TWO FREE® 2013 Terms and Conditions

    One Free Rental Day will be awarded when a member earns 600 points in the ONE TWO FREE® promotion. Points will be awarded for each qualifying rental made after the date on which the member registered and which occurs from September 9, 2013, through January 31, 2014. Credit will not be given for rentals made prior to a member's registration date. A qualifying rental is the paid rental, via the Emerald Club®, of a Midsize or larger vehicle at participating National Car Rental® locations in the 50 United States, including the District of Columbia, for a period of two or more consecutive days during the promotion. You will only be awarded points for one rental out at a time, whichever you are the primary driver on.

    Additional Opportunities to earn Points:
    An enrolled member of ONE TWO FREE 2013 will earn a bonus of 300 points for each friend he/she refers who successfully enrolls in ONE TWO FREE and completes a qualifying rental by January 31, 2014.

    To be eligible for the email opt in bonus of 50 points toward a Free Rental Day, you must electively opt in to receive emails from National. Offer expires January 31, 2014, and is valid for new opt–ins only.

    Other bonus opportunities will be available on each member’s dashboard. Successful completion of bonus opportunities, by successfully completing the activity per the Bonus Details, will result in the member earning the displayed bonus points for that opportunity, which can be used toward earning Free Rental Day coupons. Completed activities and point values — including rentals that result in point awards — will be displayed on the member’s My Activity section.

    YOU CAN ONLY EARN PROMOTION POINTS THROUGH ONE PROMOTION ON A SINGLE RENTAL. IF YOU ARE EARNING POINTS IN THE ONE TWO FREE PROMOTION FOR A RENTAL, YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE POINTS OR CREDIT ASSOCIATED WITH ANY OTHER PROMOTION ON THAT RENTAL.

    A registrant should allow five business days for points earned in the ONE TWO FREE promotion to be displayed in his or her ONE TWO FREE account balance after the ONE TWO FREE bonus activity occurred. ONE TWO FREE points and rewards have no cash value.

    Earned Free Rental Day Fulfillment:
    Earned Free Rental Day fulfillment will begin on September 9, 2013 (solely by email to the email address associated with the promotion), and thereafter will occur within 1–2 weeks after a member reaches 600 earned points. To redeem a Free Rental Day, visit emeraldclubpromos.com/12Free/2013 to view your Free Rental Day coupons, click redeem, and then rent a Compact through Fullsize car starting September 9, 2013, through June 16, 2014. To take advantage of this offer, make a reservation at least 24 hours in advance. No more than three Free Rental Days may be redeemed toward one rental of three or more days. Unfortunately, we cannot combine this offer with any other discount and cannot apply the offer to a previous or existing reservation. All standard rental qualifications apply. Earned Free Rental Day coupons may be redeemed to cover base rate for a rental day but excludes taxes, governmentally-authorized or imposed surcharges, license recoupment/air tax recovery, concession recoupment fees, airport and airport facility fees, fuel, one-way rental charge, additional driver fee, or optional items, which shall be the responsibility of the renter. Please check your auto insurance policy and/or credit-card agreement for rental vehicle coverage. The availability of this offer is limited to participating U.S. locations and is subject to change without notice. Blackout dates also may apply. We cannot accept the coupon if it has been purchased, bartered or sold for cash.

    Account Status:
    A registrant should log in to his or her account on the ONE TWO FREE site to view his or her account status, total point balance and activity, as well as the points available for redemption at any given time. All points earned within the ONE TWO FREE promotion will be automatically converted to Free Rental Day coupons when the point total reaches 600 points. Free Rental Day coupons will be displayed in the member’s ONE TWO FREE dashboard. Please allow 48 hours for coupons to be awarded once 600 points are earned within a member’s profile. Points and Free Rental Day coupons will expire at 11:59 p.m. on June 16, 2014.

    I think the whole points thing is complicating what used to be an elegantly simple promotion, but on the other hand it may provide some bonuses for some. When I go to website I receive the following bonus opportunities. Did anyone get different ones?
    • Mobile app download: 25 points
    • Mobile app rental: 75 points (up to 4 times)
    • Refer a friend: 300 points (has to register and rent during promo period)
    • Opt in for paperless membership credentials: 50 points
    • Local Enterprise rental: 200 points (no other National ONE TWO FREE rental credit on Enterprise rentals)
    • Drive Alliance website visit: 25 points
    • Emerald Reserve service: 25 points (reserve specific car class)
    • Link your Facebook account: 50 points
    Not sure I'm going to play the game too much. The simple things like visiting a website (how do they even know, BTW?) don't amount to anything substantial but hey, if it makes sense to do other stuff maybe I'll get an extra day out of it. I won't waste much time on it though.
