Hot off the press and into my email, National Car Rental’s Emerald Club program has extended elite member status for Executive and Executive Elite members.

National Car Rental Elite Status Extension

Your Executive status will be extended.
Current Executive and Executive Elite members will receive a one-year extension and keep their status through February 28, 2022.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

Qualifying rentals and rental days will roll over. 
You’ve earned them and we want to ensure you keep them. Any qualifying activity you have beyond your tier qualification will roll over to next year. Additional details can be found here

I don’t believe that any of the other car rental companies have extended status yet.

This is especially nice for MilesTalk readers, as many have current National Executive Elite status from this promotion. Now, you’ll have it through Feb 28, 2022.

Remember that you can also use your National EE status to match over to Hertz’s President’s Circle.



Let me know here, on Twitter, or in the private MilesTalk Facebook group.

You can find credit cards that best match your spending habits and bonus categories at Your Best Credit Cards

New to all of this? The MilesTalk “introduction to miles and points” book, MilesTalk: Live Your Wildest Travel Dreams Using Miles and Points is available on Amazon and at major booksellers.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
