Should You Sign Up For National Car Rental’s One Two Free Promotion?

It’s the beginning of September and that means it’s time for National Car Rental’s One Two Free promotion. While there are some who feel this is the rental car promotion of the year, I like to take a closer look at what’s being offered.

My Spidey senses were activated when the email started with this picture.
