Last week I let you know about how to earn 5,000 SAS (Scandinavian Airlines) points per Hertz car rental. This was an exiting offer because you can use SAS points to book flights on Star Alliance partners like United Airlines, Air Canada, and more.
But via Frequent Miler, the terms of the promotion have changed!
The offer isn’t dead, but it’s now harder to make the most of the deal. Because they’ve increased the minimum number of rental days to earn the bonus points.

Here are the details of the changes to the promotion.
Here’s an amazing opportunity for folks who don’t mind a little inconvenience!
Via Frequent Flyer Bonuses, you can earn 5,000 SAS (Scandinavian Airlines) points per Hertz car rental. And there doesn’t seem to be a cap on the amount of times you can earn this bonus!
And SAS is a member of the Star Alliance, which means you can use their points to book flights on airlines like United Airlines, Air Canada, and more.
You must reserve your car by June 30, 2017, and rent by September 30, 2017.

Lyn blogs about Southwest Airlines at GotoTravelGal.com. And she offers her free “Step-by-Step Guide to Earning the Southwest Companion Pass” to help you quickly and easily earn the amazing Southwest Companion Pass, which lets 1 person fly nearly free with you for up to 2 years.
So I’ve asked her to share some tips on how to earn Southwest points when you rent a car.
Lyn: Renting a car is a common activity for travelers who want an independent mode of transportation at their destination.
Whether you’ll be sight-seeing around a US National Park, driving along the Pacific Coast highway, or just want the freedom to stop at the grocery and explore a destination on your own time, car rentals can come in quite handy.
Did you know it’s quite easy to earn Southwest points every time you rent a car? But NOT all the points you earn will qualify for the Southwest Companion Pass.

I’m going to show you the current bonus point offers from Southwest, explain a few caveats to help make sure the deal is right for you, and walk you through how to book your Southwest car rental.

Million Mile Secrets reader, Ana, commented:
What’s your recommendation for primary auto rental insurance if I pay using the Chase Sapphire Preferred or Chase Sapphire Reserve card and the rental period is longer than 31 days?
The Sapphire Preferred and Sapphire Reserve cards are great choices to pay for car rentals. Because you get primary insurance coverage for collisions and damage.
But with these 2 cards, the coverage only applies to rentals of 31 consecutive days or less in the US and most foreign countries.
To get around the time limit, I’d recommend returning your car and renting another one. This way, you’ll restart the clock for insurance coverage.
Having Primary Auto Rental Insurance With the Sapphire Preferred and Sapphire Reserve Is a Great Perk. But It Only Works on Rentals of 31 Days or Less
