This could be a good deal provided the prices are in line with what you would pay elsewhere. I haven’t priced out a rental through this promotion, but I do always compare prices against what I find through Autoslash.com (which is where I usually shop around before booking).
This promotion is less generous than the recent targeted Hertz promotion for more than 5K United miles per rental without the three-day requirement. I was able to take advantage of a couple of one-day rentals through that promotion that yielded more than 5,000 miles.
At the end of the day, this utility of this promotion will vary greatly depending on your dates and local prices, but it’s always good to check multiple sources to get the best overall deal.
