car rental CDW

MilesTalk group moderator Sarah just let me know that a promo that has come and gone several times before is back.

All you have to do is click the link on the promo page to enroll, using any American Express credit card. The terms say you’ll get a full year of status (until 2/28/22) and you can even match this status over to Hertz President’s Circle.

Keep in mind that I always recommend using a Chase Sapphire Preferred or Chase Sapphire Reserve for car rentals since they have primary CDW coverage but if you pay with an Amex, you’ll get 5 bonus credits (which is a free rental day) for paying for your first rental with the Amex. If you do that consider buying CDW as Amex coverage is secondary.

Chase Sapphire PreferredChase Sapphire Preferred® Card Earn 60,000 bonus Ultimate Rewards points (worth at least $750 in free travel) when you spend $4,000 in 3 months. How to apply for this offer.


Let me know below in the comments, on Twitter, or in the private MilesTalk Facebook group. And don't forget to follow me on Instagram for all sorts of tips on miles, points, credit cards, and travel.
