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 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.
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.
