Hertz is currently offering rentals for $7.99 per day one-way from Florida and Arizona to select markets between April 17th, 2017 and June 15, 2017. Unlimited miles are included and rentals are limited to a maximum of 14 days.
The $7.99 pricing is available across many car classes, so you are not limited to the smallest economy cars. Availability may vary depending on location and dates, but here is what I found from Key West, FL to Boston for May 12 to May 17, 2017 (rates and classes were identical from Phoenix to Seattle):

I had trouble finding availability to some destinations out of Arizona. While I had no trouble finding the $7.99 one-ways from Phoenix to Seattle, I could not find any dates to return to Bozeman or Billings, Montana despite both airports being listed in the eligible drop-off list. I thought that either drop-off point would have been perfect for an early summer visit to Yellowstone National Park on the way, but I wasn’t able to find dates to either of those airports (or Boise for that matter).
Still, this annual promotion can be great for a road trip. Check the full terms and look for dates here.
