Renting out of ORD this weekend... Just went to check for the last time if I could get a better rate and found this promo:
Hertz Weekender Special
Drive away with this special Weekend Deal from Hertz. Enjoy a great rate of $14.99 per day on an economy or compact car when you rent from Friday through Monday at select participating airport or neighborhood locations.
Programs: AA Plat, UA Silver, Elevate Silver, Hilton Gold, Hertz PC, Sixt Platinum, National Exec Elite
I am glad that I booked a couple rentals right when this promo came out. It appears that the terms changed or the promo is limited as when I try to book the same days already booked, the price is much higher.
Programs: HH Gold (again), US/UA/DL non-elite, ZE Presidents Circle, WN reluctant no fee convert.

TYSM for sharing this.
You can also use this CDP at the HLE locations even though you most likely won't receive the $14.99 to discount. They pick you up and you don't have to spend your gas and time to get to the airport. However, you will sidestep those pesky applicable airport facilitation/arena fees. My two day rental is $26.xx total. I can live with that!
Wait are you guys serious. How are you guys combining the two? Everytime I try to combine the rate code with a pc 135892 it will give me a higher rate then the 14.99 but will take off 10 dollars a day but if i take off the pc code then it will let me rent for 14.99 a day on the weekend. I can not use both at same time.
Programs: Hertz 5 star, Priceline Hotel bidder. AA PLT, 1MM.

I would try to make the reservation using the frdm rate. The Hertz site is quite "buggy". When the reservation posts into your Hertz account (I am assuming you are Hertz Gold member), then modify clicking on the box "keep original rate plan" and adding the coupon. That worked for me.
Make sure the "frdm" stays in the RQ box. If not, add the frdm back in the RQ box. Hertz tends to loses the frdm with any modification. Keep an "eye" on the frdm code to make sure it keeps throughout the reservation.
I've tried making a couple of dummy bookings with this code at random airport locations but I always get the same rate as if I didnt use the code. Is there anything special I need to do to get it to work?
