Has anyone tried booking through their travel agent, using their normal corporate discount code, but using the promotional code here?

Curious about whether that would work...

Concern is that I think my firm requires us to use the corporate discount for low (perhaps because I would not have insurance coverage if I don't use the corporate code).

Alternatively, if creating the original booking through United.com is required, I wonder if then going to Hertz.com and changing the corporate discount to my firm's but leaving the promotional code in there would work?

I tried going to Hertz.com on one of my corporate bookings and adding the code. The website indicated that the code was not allowed on that booking and I would have to start over on the reservation if I wanted to change the code.

So I accepted that I couldn't do it. The strange thing is that I ended up getting the bonus miles on that rental!

I wonder if this keeps getting extended because Hertz is hurting financially and needs as many customers as it can get.

I've been able to use the offer over and over most weekends, only about $18 to rent a car on the weekend, maybe $30 out the door for one day. Great promo!

The gift that keeps on giving... I wonder if the 3K targeted Chase MP promo will be extended, too.

That one is the best for me. I've rented partial days on a weekends for $29... 189 mi/USD.

Edit: Just received email, the 3K Chase MP promo is extended to January 31, 2018 also.

Wanted to United miles for my wife's account, but I will be the main driver. So, is it OK if I login my wife's MP account and then use my Hertz's profile or would this create a conflict in the two systems?

Should work fine, but just to be sure- put your wife's MP number on your Hertz profile before the rental date, and I'd recommend leaving it there until the miles post.

Oooooh. I’d appreciate the data point after this move.

I get targeted hertz offers due to UA status and united club card but haven’t even thought about doing the above when it wasn’t me traveling but wife

Motivation? Seriously?

Motivation is attracting business travelers who don't care about spending more money than necessary for a car (to their employers' detriment) solely in order to get some pretty expensive FF miles. I think I've taken advantage of this deal all of once in three years. Since I spend my own money, the deal is actually pretty lousy. Strictly a business traveler target, plus it probably some on their own dime who can't calculate value.

Nonsense. This rate requires the United CDP. I wouldn't even consider renting a car for business using the United CDP instead of my corporate one. For one thing, I could get in hot water with travel; for another thing, my corporate rate, like many, includes LDW. For corporate rentals, I just go with the company's preferred provider, which isn't Hertz anyway.

For personal rentals, I compare rates and go with whatever makes the most sense. If the rates are similar, I'll normally go with National, especially this time of year, as One-Two-Free is a great promo and National free days work great for me. However, if Hertz is considerably cheaper, I'll take the UA miles and call it a win.

I had a one-day rental at ORD recently; National was something like $80, and the Hertz promo rate was $36 (all-in). And, since they status match Platinum and up to President's Circle, I ended up driving an Infiniti (Q50, I think, but it might have been a Q60) for that price. I think I did OK value-wise.

Obviously your company has a better CDP than mine... I always end up doing due diligence to quote both my company CDP and the UA CDP, and find the UA one is always the same or cheaper. Screenshot both, and book the UA one. Our LDW is covered on an independent policy either way.

Coupled with the 3K targeted Chase MP Card and Premier bonus- 5,500 miles/rental is hard to beat. Especially since most of my rentals are one day (or partial days).

This generally works well for me. I can't use it for corporate travel because of the requirement to book through the corporate travel website. However, the prices I find for personal travel are generally very competitive. If they are more than an alternative, they are usually close enough that the 5K miles offer, combined with President's Circle (Club Card benefit) make it very much worth my while to go with Hertz.
