This is a cool opportunity — if you have Hertz elite status, you can gift the same status to someone else.

Gift Hertz status to a friend or family member

Hertz has launched a promotion whereby current Five Star and President’s Circle members can gift equivalent status to a friend or family member. The gifted status is valid through June 30, 2022, so it’s potentially valid for nearly seven months.

In order to take advantage of this you just need to fill out a short form, including sharing your name, email address, and Gold Plus Rewards number. Then you need to share the recipient’s name, email address, and state of residence. Presumably they’ll then be emailed to upgrade their status.

Hertz President’s Circle status is potentially useful, and offers guaranteed car upgrades, the ability to choose from the President’s Circle section of the Hertz Ultimate Choice lot, and more.

The Capital One Venture X offers Hertz status

One cool angle here is that the new Capital One Venture X Rewards Credit Card offers Hertz President’s Circle status as an ongoing perk. This benefit is available not only to the primary cardmember, but also to authorized users (and you can add up to four authorized users at no cost).

Even if you have Hertz President’s Circle status through the Capital One Venture X, you’re still eligible to gift the status to someone else. That’s a pretty cool opportunity, should there be people who could benefit from the status, but you don’t want to add them as authorized users.

Bottom line

Hertz is letting all elite members gift Five Star and President’s Circle status to one person, with status being valid through June 30, 2022. This is a nice feature, especially when you consider that those who have received status through the Capital One Venture X can also gift status to others.

Do you plan on gifting Hertz elite status to someone else?

    My email I got shows you have until the 15th of December to do this. So don't wait too long to gift!

    Also you must use the link you got from your email. Not anyone else's. I got an error too.

  2. GregsDC Guest

    Received the same error message as others after clicking through Ben's link.

    I also got the "could not verify" message. I am a President's Circle member ... that I earned with rentals. Was this offer a targeted email? I did not get the email. I just clicked on Ben's link.

  4. Jae Guest

    I got President’s Circle from Delta Platinum Medallion. I also got the “could not verify” message. Does anyone know if active status means there has to be at least one rental on the account?

    1. Ray Member

      @Jae: I received the offer from them and haven't rented from Hertz in three years.

  5. Guest post Guest

    Can one gift it to oneself? My Presidents Circle status will end in Feb as it is dependent on me being a UAL 1K and I won’t requalify. The terms and conditions don’t say that I can’t.

  6. Betty Guest

    Given all the bad press Hertz has gotten lately - I would find this "gift" equal to a lump of coal if someone was to give it to me.

      But coal is something that is useful, especially this winter with sky high heating costs.

    This link does not work for me. Got my Presidential status through Venture X.
