The "upgrade" will simply depend on availability and the staff on hand
This is excellent news.....

I think I ended up with 5 free days. Would have been more had I realized that the enterprise rentals were capped at 3. I had 6 during the period.

The other points never posted, so I called National to get it fixed. Hopefully it will credit soon.

It's funny - at the end of the call the agent said "thanks for choosing Enterprise."

Bah, for some reason I was thinking a rental that started before Jan 31 but ended after would still count, but looks like it doesn't. Oh well, but not a huge deal. Annoyingly, because of our pattern of renting, we're probably going to have problems using all the days before the expiration, especially because most of them ended up under her and it says you can't use them for another person.

I ended up with one free day. Still free is free! Can't wait for the 2014 version!

I ended up with 14 free days. I guess it could have been about 19 if I hadn't rented a few weeks with Avis.

Nothing ever happened as a result of the last call, so I tried again today. The agent wasn't able to get them to credit properly, so he ended up giving me a regular free day. This is good, since the expiration date is later for that one...

Hmm, are the 1-2-Free days limited to no higher than full size? I was trying to set a rental up under my wife's account using some, and it said the coupon code wasn't valid for a premium rental (the site was out of luxury, or I'd have tried that), but it would work for a usual full size rental. Wife's EE, so her normal free days should be good for anything.

Correct. 1-2-F is good to full only. Regular free is any class for EE.

Well I'm going to say no true, I did a one way rental SAN-PHX and was able to use one of my 1-2-3 certs and one of my regular free rental certs for that rental, and it was a Suburban that I rented. Now, I did have the counter person at SAN do all the work for me, but he was able to get the rental down from just a tad over $400 to $165.

Well I'm going to say yes true. First off, it is well documented both in policy and practice that 1-2-Free days are good only to full-size and are not combinable with any other promotion including regular earned free days.

The fact that "the agent had to take care of it" should explain a lot. Sounds like you got a free upgrade into the Suburban and then the one two free day was manually applied. This is not in line with normal operations procedures so others shouldn't be advised to expect this.

This questions has been asked multiple times, and the answer remains the same: 1-2 Free days are only valid to reserve up to FCAR. Period.

I plan to use my 1-2-Free days in early June. I have six coupons, but there is only space for three coupons on the reservation screen. How do I apply the other three?

3 per reservation, so you'll have to make a second reservation with the other 3 which will require you to return to any station (does not have to be the original rental location) and start a new rental.

Thanks for the information. Is there no other way? The airport where I'm picking the car up is over two hours from where we'll be staying. I'd hate to drive an extra four hours round-trip just because of a technicality.
