National Car Rental OneTwoFree Promotion: One Free Rental Coupon For Every Two Qualifying Rentals

The popular OneTwoFree promotion from National Car Rental has returned. You will receive a free rental day for every two qualifying rentals of two days or longer that you make during the promotional period from September 9 to January 31st, 2014.


Members in the United States can register for the promotion here and those in the Canada here.

You can redeem your free rental days starting from the day you receive your first award and must redeem them all by June 16th, 2014. Note that you need to make the reservation using these free night awards at least 24 hours in advance of the rental.

National will email you/send you a link to the page where you can find the redemption codes for the free rental days. You can combine to have up to 3 of these on the same reservation. The only requirement is to be a National Emerald Club member and to rent a midsize or larger vehicle in the 50 United States.

The Canadian version of this promotion allows the use of these awards both in the Canada and in the United States.


This is absolutely the best free rental credit promotion out there. You will earn your usual credits for free rentals in conjunction with this offer. The only drawback is that you can have maximum of three free rental days in one reservation.

I often rent one-way rentals and these free rental coupons don’t allow that. The regular point based awards from National do allow one-ways, however.

Here are the terms and conditions of the US offer:

One Free Rental Day will be awarded when a member earns 600 points in the ONE TWO FREE® promotion. Points will be awarded for each qualifying rental made after the date on which the member registered and which occurs from September 9, 2013, through January 31, 2014. Credit will not be given for rentals made prior to a member’s registration date. A qualifying rental is the paid rental, via the Emerald Club®, of a Midsize or larger vehicle at participating National Car Rental® locations in the 50 United States, including the District of Columbia, for a period of two or more consecutive days during the promotion. You will only be awarded points for one rental out at a time, whichever you are the primary driver on.

Additional Opportunities to earn Points:
An enrolled member of ONE TWO FREE 2013 will earn a bonus of 300 points for each friend he/she refers who successfully enrolls in ONE TWO FREE and completes a qualifying rental by January 31, 2014.

To be eligible for the email opt in bonus of 50 points toward a Free Rental Day, you must electively opt in to receive emails from National. Offer expires January 31, 2014, and is valid for new opt–ins only.

Other bonus opportunities will be available on each member’s dashboard. Successful completion of bonus opportunities, by successfully completing the activity per the Bonus Details, will result in the member earning the displayed bonus points for that opportunity, which can be used toward earning Free Rental Day coupons. Completed activities and point values — including rentals that result in point awards — will be displayed on the member’s My Activity section.


A registrant should allow five business days for points earned in the ONE TWO FREE promotion to be displayed in his or her ONE TWO FREE account balance after the ONE TWO FREE bonus activity occurred. ONE TWO FREE points and rewards have no cash value.

Earned Free Rental Day Fulfillment:
Earned Free Rental Day fulfillment will begin on September 9, 2013 (solely by email to the email address associated with the promotion), and thereafter will occur within 1–2 weeks after a member reaches 600 earned points. To redeem a Free Rental Day, visit to view your Free Rental Day coupons, click redeem, and then rent a Compact through Fullsize car starting September 9, 2013, through June 16, 2014. To take advantage of this offer, make a reservation at least 24 hours in advance. No more than three Free Rental Days may be redeemed toward one rental of three or more days. Unfortunately, we cannot combine this offer with any other discount and cannot apply the offer to a previous or existing reservation. All standard rental qualifications apply. Earned Free Rental Day coupons may be redeemed to cover base rate for a rental day but excludes taxes, governmentally-authorized or imposed surcharges, license recoupment/air tax recovery, concession recoupment fees, airport and airport facility fees, fuel, one-way rental charge, additional driver fee, or optional items, which shall be the responsibility of the renter. Please check your auto insurance policy and/or credit-card agreement for rental vehicle coverage. The availability of this offer is limited to participating U.S. locations and is subject to change without notice. Blackout dates also may apply. We cannot accept the coupon if it has been purchased, bartered or sold for cash.

Account Status:
A registrant should log in to his or her account on the ONE TWO FREE site to view his or her account status, total point balance and activity, as well as the points available for redemption at any given time. All points earned within the ONE TWO FREE promotion will be automatically converted to Free Rental Day coupons when the point total reaches 600 points. Free Rental Day coupons will be displayed in the member’s ONE TWO FREE dashboard. Please allow 48 hours for coupons to be awarded once 600 points are earned within a member’s profile. Points and Free Rental Day coupons will expire at 11:59 p.m. on June 16, 2014.
