How To Get National Emerald Executive Status Free & Easy
I wanted to share a quick deal on how to get National Emerald Executive status free & easy. I used this trick when I went on our trip to Alaska and it ended up getting me upgraded to an SUV. It only takes a few seconds so if you ever use National for your car rental needs you will want to set it up.
Executive Status For American Express Platinum Cardholders…Or Anyone?
There is an offer on National’s website to get Executive Emerald Club status and it is intended for American Express Platinum cardholders. I am still an Amex Platinum cardholder, thanks to an awesome retention offer, but it doesn’t appear that I needed to be.
I went through the process of upgrading my account and it never actually asked me for any proof that I was an Amex Platinum cardholder. Once I completed the quick form I was a newly minted National Emerald Executive, good until February of 2023.
