Signup For National Emerald Club Or Upgrade Your Existing Membership To Executive Elite Status For Free!

Signup for National Emerald Club via the link above or login to your existing membership via the link above and you’ll automatically get Executive Elite status through 2/28/21.

Just click through to the Executive Elite enrollment button and then click on the enroll now or sign in button.

  • Earn 1 rental credit for every qualified car rental. Free Rental Day = 5 credits.
  • With Executive Elite status the free rental day is valid on any car class with no blackout dates!
  • Choose any car (Fullsize and above) in the Executive Area and only pay the Midsize rate (in US and Canada). Plus get additional Executive Elite upgrades including luxury cars
  • Executive Elites can always reserve a car with 24 hours notice, even if the location is sold out.
  • In the US and Canada you’re always guaranteed a free upgrade when you reserve using the Midsize rate.

Officially this is targeted to AMEX cardholders, but I was able to enroll with my Sapphire Reserve card, which gives free primary car rental insurance. AMEX cards only provide secondary coverage on rental cars unless you call to enroll in a program that costs $20/rental to upgrade the secondary coverage to primary coverage.

If you pay for a rental by 1/31/19 with an AMEX you will earn 5 rental credits which can be redeemed for 1 free rental car day in any car class with no blackout dates!

The free rental day expires 12/31 of the calendar year following the year in which the credits were earned.

 

JJ reserved a midsize car in Maui over Sukkos and was upgraded from a reserved midsize to this 430i hardtop convertible (seen on top of Haleakala where he took this sunrise video) for free with his Executive Elite status:

 

Once you sign up for this status you can do a status match to various other car rental companies and also receive high level elite status.

Hertz: Email your current Hertz Gold number and a picture of your National status to hertzstatusmatch@hertz.com.

Enterprise: Apply for status here.

Sixt: You can apply for Platinum status via this link (You may or may not automatically receive Platinum status, no need to match for this.)

What other free statuses do you have?

HT: Yeah, via DDF

Question

Doesn’t the sapphire reserve give you executive status?

Moshe

How can i get executive status with chase sapphire reserve?

Greg

How do I get the status? Im already an emerald club member. Do i just click on the link and it will work automatically?

gingyguy

sign in through the link

Elie

“If you pay for a rental by 1/31/19 with an AMEX“ – how long does the rental need to be and does any Amex (Blue cash Preferred or SPG) Card work for this deal. Is it a one time use or receive a free rental on every time you use your Amex?
Thanks Dan

yyoel

what does hertz match you to

gingyguy

presidents club

Sam

I did it and got matched to 5 star not presidents club

K

if you have a world elite MasterCard you can get presidents circle from it
https://www.mastercard.com/en-lb/consumers/find-card-products/world-elite/travel/hertz-benefit.html

Thingy

Which cards are world elite?

Thingy

I have the Barclay M&M and tried getting PC through your link. Browser just keeps turning and turning. I tried logging into the reg. Hertz site and adding the CDP #1795034 as site instructs and it shows up as “MASTERCARD WORLD ELITE” but it doesn’t stick to my account and I don’t see my status has changed. Any advice?

pointer

just sayin you have to use the mastercard at time of rental

yoni

how old must u be to rent by national

reader

depends the size of car over 25 you can get everything

y

is there a way to get Avis status match?

gingyguy

worked for me to reach out to them at Update@avisbudget.com. or you can try on twitter

shimon

The following addresses had permanent fatal errors

shimon
James

Avis will only upgrade you to Avis First

Eli

Avis matched me to presidents club

Zalmy

I heard avis stopped this whole status match thing

Mo2

How do I status match to Enterprise?
I don’t see option to status match National

tom

same

reader

https://statusmatch.enterpriseplus.com just upload Proof of Status from national and enterprise will match

Moot

Or just match to Hertz Presidents circle and then from Hertz to enterprise

Anonymous

Completed 2 car rentals with Amex since executive upgrade, and received only 1 credit. Do I need to reach out to them for the 5/6 credits?

Ayasha

what statues would hertz give you if you match?would they give you pc?

Ayasha

does israel honor statues and allow for earning and redeeming points?

Hey

Hey dan
I clicked the executive elite enrollment button and filled out the whole application and they only gave me the regular emerald club status. Do u know where I went wrong?
Thanx in advance

Max

Hi dan,
Currently I’m an executive elite member which expires on December 31, will this work for me

tassojunior

Me too. Also you have to change to AmEx as your contract ID when you enroll, not sure how hard it would be to get my present incredible one back.

E

Very easy

JB

Can you explain how? I used to use a good contract ID but I get a message that it doesn’t work online anymore. Though I’m not sure it would’ve worked if I didn’t update to Amex.

SteveHOU

Please explain. In searching FAQs you can no longer do it on-line. Tks.

tassojunior

I have a feeling I’ll have to go through the PIN code and company ID thing to get my wonderful code back. I’m just wondering if going back to that default contract rate will invalidate my AmEx EE contract.

Jay

if the reservation is done through chase travel rewards do you get the elite benefits?

Sam

Just call chase and they will refund you for free reservations

EZ

I never really managed to have luck with National. They have been several hundred dollars higher or up to double the cost of the other rental companies offered.

pad18

thanks, i am now EE.
– how and were i see the expiration on my profile ?
– if i rent with Costco do i will still receive the upgrade ? or i need to reserve with National directly ? (i general i am asking)

thanks

Hanna

Somehow I am still not seeing the status as being upgraded! Any idea why not?

Yehuda

same here

Dave Bower

When booking through “amex ee contract” booking is about $50 more for same car/Emerald Aisle. Is that normal?

Aanna

That’s what I’m seeing, too. Not really better if the rate is higher!

Eli

Yes , same when booking with Chase sapphire reserve “infinite” code, You gotta unclick all those contract codes which only gives you higher rates/taxes. Broken system.

Zalmy

I just did the upgrade. Little lost though. It said your profile has been updated to amex ee does that mean I have to rent w amex from now on?
I have president circle /club w hertz, should I just do status match w that?

Thanks in advance

Mo

I’ve got EE with hertz pc with status match on nationals official match page

Moshe

What do I have to show Hertz and enterprise to get the status match. The email confirmation? The signup screenshot?

Lm

I just did it. But it says “You need 25 rentals Or 85 Rental days this year to maintain EC Executive Elite Status.

Avi

Go to the new national car rental site nationalcar.com

Ness

Where’s the best place to rent a car from JFK airport?

Moby

Does Chabad still have have a discount code for National in Hawaii? I tried inputting online and it did not work…

Reference:
https://www.dansdeals.com/points-travel/dansmeals/dansmeals-hawaii-for-the-kosher-traveler-part-3-maui/

“Chabad of Hawaii has passed on a corporate rate for rentals at Enterprise or National in Hawaii that provides better rates, waives underage fees, and waives different location drop-off fees.
The company name is Hawaii Kosher Weddings. The contract number is XZ36016 and the pin is HAW”

grace

Earn free rental days with National, you earn a Free Rental Day for every 7 rental credits OR you can earn miles/points with your chosen frequent traveler program on every National Car Rental.
I thought it should be 5?

dan1

dan or anyone, if booking a mid-size thru autoslash instead of directly with national, do you think i would have access to the emerald aisle? Thx

Banjo

Will Enterprise match this status without first having to get Hertz match? Looks like there is no National choice when you open the scrolldown menu. Are National and Enterprise not the same company anyway?

FD

I chose Hertz President Circle in the dropdown and uploaded a screenshot of my National account displaying National EE status. I was given Enterprise Platinum Plus status (notified via email) about 12 hours later.

a

what do i upload on enterprise do i have to wait for something in the mail

what about hertz

chaim

if i reserve a car with with national through chase points can i use my EE status??

bubbyK

Thanks Dan!

swesz

no drivers license can I still join the club?

Meir

What’s the point of joining if you cont rent?

swesz

status match

Avi

Can’t join without drivers license as far as i know.

Ben

id like to match my status to Hertz but I never got a welcome letter email from National. anyone have an option for me?

S

Log into your account, go to profile and screenshot

Best one?

What benefits do the various elite levels of car rental companies offer? And which is the most valuable to match to?
Thanks.

David

Does the AMEX upgrade to primary coverage cover liability or only collision?

S

On the new website, it says membership does not expire.

eg

Did he @jj1000 put schach on that convertible to convert it to a Sukkah Mobile?

timmothy

use CV code 022q9225 for $50 off your rental with hertz

Lev

Is there an under age fee waiver promo on national car rental

Avi

Westjet CDP waives underage

klanfa

What is the Westjet CDP? Tried finding it online but no luck.
Is it for Westjet customers or Westjet staff?

The Mel

When they say they change your profile they change your account or contract to Amex which may have different rates. They replaced my corporate account with Amex and although I now can get exec aisle for 52/day that’s pretty close to what I paid for luxury car on corporate contract.

So I’ll use this to get stays upgrade at hertz and then if I can transfer account back without losing EE status.

Then again I usually rent silver at when I do rent, thanks to Dan. And I generally don’t rent a car since I almost always uber, again thanks to Dan!

jay99

how long does hertz take to match

thank you

i did sign up , however i do not see that my account was upgraded to the executive status

please advise, otherwise i dont see this to be usefull

jay99

jay99

Jay99

heshy

Gersh

mevakesh

mevakesh

JM

Gersh

Expired

Steinmetz

Is there anyway i can Earn back my expired executive elite status ?

Ari

How long does it take to hear back from hertz that they are matching me?

Joe

If I got EE last time this was available, can I use the link to extend it to 2021? My status currently expires in 2/20.

Extend?

I already have Executive Elite Status which expires 2/28/20. Can it be extended through this?

Sam

It does not update my expiration date of status to 2021 when I sign in thru your link

YMA

If I have Executive Elite through 2/28/20 is there anyway to have it extended until 2021?

Ben

Thank you!

Would anyone know if its possible with this to upgrade to a minivan or larger suburban like that? Travelling with 3 kids and luggage, a car isn’t so practical.

Thanks!

Joe

I don’t see a way to enroll for an existing Emerald club member? I do not see a sign in option.

Torah613

@Dan i followed the instructions, my account still shows status expires 2/28/2020 ?

Max

I’m currently an elite member due to expire Feb 2020, followed the instructions still showing Feb 2020

WhatYear?

I enrolled and signed in using my current EE account – it only gave me until 02/28/20 not 2021. Did I do something wrong

Chaim

If I booked a reservation with chase points from my reserve card would I be covered for insurance?

Moshe

As long as something (i.e. taxes) is charged to the card, then your credit card should cover you. Though I would call the card issuer just to be sure.

Yudi

How long does it take to show your status update on your profile? I’m currently an EE memeber till 02/28/20, I’ve used this link, but it didnt extended my Elite status till 2021.

Yudi

Guys, this is an old post that was posted back in late 2018! So if you have signed up back then, your Elite status will most probably not be extended till 2021. Would be great if Dan can clarify that this is an old post already, in order to avoid confusion. Thanks.

lazertek

any way to still get this?”If you pay for a rental by 1/31/19 with an AMEX you will earn 5 rental credits which can be redeemed for 1 free rental car day in any car class with no blackout dates!”

yakov

i got this promotion last time you posted it, my status was about to expire in 2 months, did it now again, it is still showing the same expiration date?

Yehuda_H

Just signed up – now what do i do with this?

J

Sixt Platinum link does not work. Any way to status match to Avis?

Samdaman
SteveP

@Dan : it says Status Expires Feb 28, 2020 not 2021 ?

united

I just signed up (thanx Dan), mine says status expires Feb 28, 2021

ROYA

Signed up last time. Expires in February. Says already enrolled. Any way I can double dip and do it again?

Yehda

Are there any legal risks for signing up if I don’t have an AMEX card?

yb

No

Avrum

If already on EE it doesn’t seem to extend the status. Shame.

jr

ya im already on it from last year, so it wont work?

Yeshivabucher

It worked for me expires now in 2021

ROYA

Signed in or started a new account?

yeshivabucher

signed in and got offer last year

Yitz

“If you pay for a rental by 1/31/19 with an AMEX you will earn 5 rental credits which can be redeemed for 1 free rental car day in any car class with no blackout dates!”
Typo? Do you mean 1/31/2020? Regardless I dont see in terms on offer page any date listed…?

ttn32

If I already have Hertz Presidents Circle will this match me to Hertz 5 Star?

Yuda

Pc is higher status than 5 star.

Yuda

@Dan how do I know when my hertz membership status expires?

eli

There is no option to login to an existing membership via the link above only new signup. Tried on desktop and mobile…..Help please

Yuda

After you click the link and click sign up there is an option on top right to log in

ches

Sign in first into your emerald club account on one (desktop) tab and then click the link in a different tab (while still signed in on the other tab) and it’ll update automatically.

TC610

2/29/2021 doesn’t exist. 2/28/2021?

M. Josef

Thanks Dan! Just got approved for EE until 02/28/2022! Used a United Explorer card with no issues.

Magnus

Just signed up. Expires 2/28/22!

Yaakov Horowitz

the sixt website isn’t working.

AG

I feel like this post attracted people who don’t know how to spell, and have stupid questions.

Jeff

thanx

EE

Hello all. I got the EE last year from the same offer, but when i try to enroll again it doesn’t extend the EE. Still shows Feb 28 2020 by my profile. Any ideas?

ches

Try again today since it’s a new year their systems are updating with the new expiration dates.

zev

hi how soon is it until hertz or anyone else reply with a request to match status?

Yuda

It took 3 days by me.

Aryeh Sonnenberg

Got it, but haven’t heard a peep from Hertz 9n the status match. Is there a number I can call?

Thanks tons!

Aryeh S

Here is the Hertz match page: https://offer.hertz.com/offers/index.jsp?targetPage=TierStatusMatch.jsp

When I first called and asked for the Loyalty team, the woman told me that she could help me, then after a few minutes explained that in order to upgrade to President status, I need to meet the spend or rental requirements. I told her about this program. She wasn’t aware of it and sent me to the Loyalty team.

I waited on the line for a while.

The woman told me that it takes 7 business days for the upgrade to be shown.

Moshe

From their website after signing up: “Earn free rental days with National, you earn a Free Rental Day for every 7 rental credits”.
Seems you need 7 not 5 credits for free day.

DannyGuru

With the EE status, you only need 5 credits for a free day.

ches

I just signed in with the above link to my national profile,
I had the past year executive status (I’m a long time national Executive/Elite loyal customer) and i got updated immediately to Executive Elite status with expiration date of 02/22

THANKS DAN

Joel

I got until Feb 2022!!

Abe

If I did this last year with this amex code, can I get it again this year or does it continue automatically?

Daniel

When I got “Executive Elite” I also noticed that it’s valid through February 28, 2021. After statusmatching with Hertz, I realized that on January 1, 2021 when I lose Presidents Circle, I’ll still have Executive Elite so I can statusmatch again with the same Executive Elite status and then on March 1, when I lose my National status, I can statusmatch back from Hertz to National until the beginning of 2022 and so on and so forth for the rest of my life!

Moshe

The correct email address for Hertz Status Match is:
golddataentry@hertz.com

Menashe

Did that email address work for you? If yes when?

Moishy

I got EE status with my ‘freedom unlimited’ and hertz and enterprise matched it.

Gil

seems like enterprise only matches from hertz and avis. I’m yet to hear back from hertz regarding the match from national, so i guess i gotta wait…

Doovid

Just got my status valid to 2/8/2022

vi

I also cant extend past Feb 28 2020. has anyone who did this in the past been successful in extending??? If yes then how? I tried resigning in and it still has Feb 28 2020.

Avi

Did anyone hear back from hertz regarding status match?
It’s been a week & no email response yet!

Thanks in advance.

Yo

Yes they got back to me today, they seem backlogged thanks to DansDeals:)

Yo

If you resign up now it will extend your status till 2022

BC

1)Can I get National’s upgrades only if I reserve the car on their site or when I’m reserving on other sites (e.g. carrentals.com or others) as well?

2) how long after the Status Match request to Herts, can I expect it?

Thank you

chaim

I emailed my ee card to hertz with my gold number and never heard from them…

Myi

John Ernheim

Leo

It seems like this link is dead, has anyone been successful? Am I missing something?

Joe

When I book the car do I need to use Amex EE contract to get the upgrade? What’s the difference if I use it or not ?

Simplicity

I went thru link and it still says my EE is expiring feb 28th, does it kick auto or I a doin something wrong?

Yoe
