Although National is not offering a status match like it did last year, this can still be a very lucrative promotion if you regularly hire cars. While the earnings from the rentals are great, the earnings from all the other options can wrack up a serious amount of points relatively rapidly. When you consider that it costs 600 points for a free rental, and thanks to plenty of activities earning bonus points, you can easily earn several days’ free rental over the course of the promotion.
