    National Car Rental: Sign Up for the One Two Free Promotion

    With some rental companies I choose to earn miles instead of rental points. With National I want free rental credits. I’ve been renting from National mostly in recent times, and I’m a big fan of their One Two Free promotion that gives you free rentals in addition to their standard rental credits.

    I got a note from the PR folks asking if I’d help them promote the fact that they’re running this offer, and I told them I’d happily give away points in the promotion. As is customary, they offered points to me but as is my custom I asked if I could give away the points and they agreed. I also asked if I could give away elite status, and they agreed to that too!

    And since you can get National’s Executive Status as a Milepoint Premium member, I asked if we could get an Executive Elite membership to give away. They agreed to that, too!

    Executive status gets you access to better cars, you pick from the Executive Aisle instead of just the Emerald Aisle. And you earn free rentals faster.

    Executive elite status normally requires 25 paid rentals or 85 paid rental days. It gets you guaranteed availability (24 hours advance reservation required), earns free rentals faster than Executive members, and an unpublished benefit in my experience is that free rental days can be redeemed for any car size or class.

    And all you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post by Sunday at 1pm Eastern answering: Are you registering for National’s One Two Free promotion?

    The newly redesigned One Two Free program allows Emerald Club members the ability to accrue points, to eventually earn a free rental – essentially, when you rent twice, you get the third one free.​

    I’m a big fan of National Car Rental, for two reasons.

    • They pioneered “pick your own vehicle” (the Emerald Aisle). When you’re a member of their Emerald Club, you walk up to the Emerald Aisle and just take the car you want. You show your ID on the way out. If I don’t want a Taurus, I don’t have to have one.
    • They run what I believe is the most lucrative promotion of any rental company, “One Two Free,” for every two rentals of a mid-size vehicle that’s two days or longer, you get a free rental day.
