American Express has a targeted Amex Offer with 5x Membership Rewards points for every dollar you spend at National Car Rental, with a maximum of 5,000 points earned. If you’re traveling this fall and intend on renting a car, take a look at your Amex Offers — this is an easy way to pick up some extra points!

Here are the details.

Amex Offer: Earn Bonus Membership Rewards Points at National

If you’ve got an eligible Amex card and are targeted for this specific offer, you can earn 5 additional Membership Rewards points per dollar spent at National Car Rental through December 15, 2023.

You can earn up to 5,000 bonus points under this promotion. In other words, if you spend $1,000 on your National rental car, you’ll earn up to the maximum — 5,000 additional points.

While that isn’t a ton of Amex points — and it’s not enough to get you a free flight or night anywhere exciting — you’ll be able to earn additional points to help you accumulate enough over time for a big redemption.

Plus, this offer specifically states that it is only valid online at the National website or in-store. Therefore, you’ll likely need to book a prepaid rental online or swipe your card with the checkout agent before you drive off of the lot.

Because car rentals may take several days to post on your statement, you’ll want to complete your rental well before December 15, 2023. If not, you risk the charge not posting in time to get your points.

Hot Tip:

Consider booking your rental with one of the Amex cards we recommend in our guide to the best credit cards for car rental insurance coverage.

How To Access Amex Offers

Amex Offers are available via the American Express website or your mobile Amex app. Simply log in and click the offers available to you under each card you have. You may notice different Amex Offers across your various cards and may only be targeted for certain promotions. No matter the case, have a look and see what’s available to you.

Final Thoughts

If you’re renting a car this fall, make sure to check your American Express cards. You could earn up to 5,000 bonus points by renting cars at National, thanks to this latest Amex Offer!
