Free National Executive Elite status. Possible tier-match to Hertz, Avis, etc
- Deal Link:
- National Car Rental
I saw this pop up in my Google feed. If you have an Amex and use the link in the article, you can enroll or upgrade to Executive Elite status with National. Please note that this is the tier above Executive, though frankly I have experience with neither tier. The article also says Hertz may match you for top-tier status too, which is above the Gold level Platinum cardholders start with.
I used my Amex Platinum and it gave me status until Feb 2022. I had no status with National, so free is free! There are some helpful comments at the bottom of the link. I haven't tried matching with Hertz yet.
Edit #1 (01/02/2020): it will overwrite your corp codes, which may give better rates. But as another user has mentioned, just manually put it back in when booking, or email in to put the code on as default
Edit #2 (01/02/2020): Many RFDers (including username Sorceror) have signed up without even mentioning Amex. In fact, Sorceror had a Mastercard linked to their existing Emerald account.
Edit #3 (01/03/2020): If you only get regular Executive status, try https://legacy.nationalcar.ca/en_US/car ... cale=en_US (thanks V-ron)
Edit # 4 (01/02/2020): Please see Sports1's post on page 5 (post #61) for status-matching instructions. In summary, match to Avis first via email, then use that status to match to Enterprise using their online matching tool. Later after you receive the National welcome toolkit (mine is still pending...), you can match to Hertz via email. Again, please see Sports1's post.
Edit # 4 (01/22/20): received my Hertz Presidents circle status match. Still waiting on Avis.
