My AMEX Platinum Saved Me $200 On A Rental Car

I lucked into a 50% savings on my Hertz rental last week. Normally I use Autoslash to find the best car rental prices and I use my Chase Sapphire for payment (so I get 2x points + primary protection). But since I needed a car for a week, I decided to price the latest airline mileage bonus offers to see if that was a better option.
It wasn’t, but it turned out the American Express Platinum card I had in my profile was. Renting a car for a week in Oregon was pricing out at $400+, but the American Express Platinum discount automatically lowered it to $208.

Out of curiosity I tried several other dates and locations. Not all resulted in such a significant savings, but often enough it’s worth checking. If you have an AMEX Platinum, be sure to enter CDP 211762 on future searches!
