I think it's new that National has been added as an RR partner; I got it in an e-mail, and they still aren't listed on the RR site; they were the notable absence among the big rental companies. There's an introductory offer of triple points for a 3-day rental; I'll put it on the rental car bonus thread.

I'm surprised no one else commented on this. Thanks for posting! I'm doing the 1-2-Free promo now (two rentals = 1 free day) whose value is about equal to the 3600 points that two rentals would earn. Hopefully the triple bonus continues for a while.
I saw this and thought, finally, points from my rental car company.
Downside: It appears you can not double dip. It is either the points or the normal free days, not both. I am not sure about the 1-2-Free promotion which is different from the normal free rental days. Plus it adds on $1 per day, max $5 fee for the points.
And, lest we forget, usually only the first 600 are CPQP.
I tested the code on a sample rental, and it was $6 higher than my typical assigned code on a weekly rental.
