Yesterday we broke the news that Hertz had just implemented a no-notice massive devaluation, increasing the cost of using its points by upwards of 30%

(SEE ALSO: Massive underhanded, no-notice Hertz devaluation ahead of Daily Getaways!)

One major issue was the upcoming Daily Getaways sale on Hertz points (currently scheduled for next Wednesday, May 29th). When it was first announced, it was announced as follows

But given the “new” Hertz award chart, 5500 points will no longer get you a one week standard rental (and similarly for the other 2 packages)

Reaching out to Daily Getaways

I sent a note out to my PR contact at the Daily Getaways / US Travel association, asking about this and am pleased that they responded today as follows

Hi Dan,

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We have confirmed with Hertz that there have indeed been recent changes to the Hertz rewards program that have affected the published redemptions. Hertz is committed to honoring all published offers to ensure its members never experience a disruption in satisfaction. They have increased the number of points for each Daily Getaways while keeping the same great price to ensure these deals uphold the highest value for travelers.

So while I’m not sure this ensures that Hertz members will not “experience a disruption in satisfaction” (the devaluation was really bad!), I am pleased to report that the points have been increased for next week’s Hertz Daily Getaways deal

And without shenanigans like decreasing the number of packages available! So, while I’m sure many of you are also sad / angry about the Hertz devaluation, if you were planning on buying Hertz points, this may be your final chance to lock in these rates before they’re gone. As always, the purchases on Daily Getaways are just of straight Hertz points and have no bearing on what you might use them for.
