Each year we take a major road trip for the holidays back down south to visit family. Its a wonderful trip that we all look forward to all year long since we don't get to see that side of the family as often as we would like. We moved to Michigan about seven years ago and have made it appoint to make the trip at least once a year if not during the summer once as well!
Now that the boys aren't infants anymore, we usually drive through the night since our drive usually averages about 12 hours. Because the end of our drive on the way down there is through the mountains, the boys both get car sick. Driving at night helps them sleep and us avoid the stress of dealing with that.
Now, because our vehicles are actually leased, we have looked into the possibility of renting a car for our drive down to avoid the mileage AND to potentially find something more suitible for such a long drive with a family of five! It seems though, that the costs outweigh the benefits so greatly it just ends up not worth it and we continue to use our own vehicles.
However, I recently came across an awesome promotion which Enterprise has recently launched that would be perfect for these trips. The “Plus Your Points” promotion started December 2, 2013 and runs through March 31, 2014. The major theme of this promotion is to earn a free rental through different ways. This is a great opportunity for my family to earn those bonus points during our holiday/winter drive so that our summer trip is potentially free or discounted!
"Enterprise Plus members can enroll in the “Plus Your Points” promotion and earn double points on qualifying rentals with additional opportunities to earn bonus points redeemable for free rental days*." There are even several additional Enterprise Plus members perks like no blackout dates and no expiration of points (as long as you have one rental during every two-year period). click here to sign into your Enterprise Plus account.
You can earn points by purchase a qualifying rental (double points), adding a GPS unit to your rental (50 bonus points), sharing the “Plus Your Points” message on Twitter (20 bonus points), or refering a friend to the promotion who rents a qualifying vehicle with Enterprise (300 bonus points). Thats a ton of incentives and reasons to rent a car whenever you might need one during this promotion!
I've got to tell you this started as a promotional article for my readers and has ended with a solution for my family. I've already started looking into the program and become quite excited with how it can help bring my family together even more frequently!
This is also going to be a great opportunity when I have to make drives to different events across state and even out of state! I am just thrilled that I can earn as much as I choose throughout this promotional time! If you haven't already I suggest signing up to become Enterprise Plus members and reward yourself.
