There a new targeted Amex Offer that can save you money on car rentals with National. I see the offer only on a few cards so it doesn’t seem to be widely available. Check your cards to see if you have it.
National Car Rental Amex Offer
Get a 1X $20 statement credit by using your enrolled Card to spend a total of $150+ directly with National Car Rental by 12/31/2017. Valid through US website, US mobile app or at participating locations in US/US Territories.
- Offer valid for rentals made directly with National Car Rental through US website (nationalcar.com), US mobile app, US telephone reservation line, or at any participating location in the US and US territories.
- Excludes international websites and locations, General Aviation/FBO rentals, and rentals through third parties, agents, and affiliate sites that link to/from nationalcar.com.
Amex Offers are a great extra perk on all American Express credit cards, charge cards, and even prepaid cards. You can see these offers in your account online and you will usually get a statement credit or earn extra MR points for spending a certain amount at a specific merchant.
You will need to add the offer to a specific card, and then use that card to get the credit. To add offers to a card, log into your account online, scroll down to the “Amex Offers & Benefits” section and click “Add to Card” for offers that you plan to use. The new interface usually has issues so if you prefer the old one, you can log in here.
A decent offer that can be stacked with any other offers that you can find for national as long as you charge at least $150 on your targeted Amex Card.
