3. When you've rented 16 days, we'll send you a Renter Rewards Certificate for a FREE day!

Good news, but Renter Rewards has been around awhile (a few years, at least). I'm not aware of anything new.

It's good to remind folks every now and then, though!

I've been a member since January, 2009. It certainly has made for far easier rental experiences and I reccomend it to anyone who rents from Dollar.

Especially since it's free!

Though to be clear, there are two different but related things going on here:

1) Dollar Express, which is a free membership program that provides express service, and
2) Dollar Express Renter Rewards, which is an optional loyalty program to accompany Dollar Express.

You can choose airline miles in lieu of Renter Rewards when signing up for Dollar Express. (If you don't input a frequent flyer account number when signing up for Dollar Express, it defaults to Renter Rewards.)

Renter Rewards is virtually identical to Thrifty's Blue Chip program (with one exception: Blue Chip provides a satisfaction guarantee, wherein they will give you one day free if you are not satisfied for any reason, so all other things being equal, I will choose Blue Chip over Dollar Express). I provide an analysis of the potential return on Blue Chip credits (which are the same thing as Renter Rewards credits) versus airline miles in http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/thrif...ts-thread.html (search for "FlyerTalk Geek Alert").

The other difference with Dollar Renter Rewards vs Frequent Flyer Miles is that there is no additional fee for the Renter Rewards but there is, if you choose to get FF miles.

I use Dollar Express and the Renter Rewards program. You get one free day car rental for every 16 days that you rent. They mail you a physical certificate that you have to bring with you to the rental car kiosk when you pickup the keys.
The certificates have a one-year expiration date on them. I usually save them up and use them for vacation rentals (after earning them on work rentals).
I recently had one free day certificate expire. I called them and renewed it. They e-mailed me a 6-month extension letter that I have printed out & stapled to the original certificate. very nice customer service! I will enjoy the rental next month in Florida!
