    I’m a Presidents Circle member with Hertz. When I search for a car rental when I’m logged in, I get one price. When I do the identical search but not logged in, I get a cheaper car at a lower price. So Hertz is clearly using some form of system to adjust its pricing (but not in my favor). Having said that, their system is not linked to emails, as all their emails are completely irrelevant to the rentals I do.
