That is the good news…

The GREAT NEWS is that you more than likely currently hold an airline or hotel loyalty status to qualify for this status match! Hilton Gold and Marriott Gold both match to Executive Elite – which means cardholders of the Hilton Surpass or Amex Platinum automatically qualify!

And for all you Platinum Card peeps that already have National Executive Status as a benefit provided by the card, this is a great way to instantly upgrade from that mid-tier to the top-tier Executive Elite!

Loyalty Lobby has the full breakdown here – featuring most airline and hotel loyalty programs, the related status levels, and what they will match to at National.

It’s so simple…

All you have to do is submit a request through the automated form found at this link right here!

Once you are on the offer page, just follow these very easy steps:

1 – Fill in the blanks

The image is a form from National Car Rental for matching an Emerald Club membership with another loyalty program. The form is divided into two sections:

1. The first section asks for information about the loyalty program to be matched:
   - Loyalty Program (with an example: American Airlines AAdvantage)
   - Tier (with examples: Gold, Platinum, Diamond, etc.)
   - Loyalty Program Number

2. The second section asks for the user's Emerald Club information:
   - First Name
   - Last Name
   - Email Address
   - Confirm Email Address
   - Emerald Club Number

All fields are marked as required.

2 – Screenshot your online account for proof of status

The image contains text with instructions for providing proof of status. The text reads:

"Proof Of Status

For your status to be matched, you will need to provide proof of matching status by sending us a copy of your current monthly statement or a copy of your membership card showing your name, current elite status and your status expiration date.

When you select the 'Send For Status Match' button, an email will open with a specific subject title associated with your submission and all your information pre-filled. Before you send your email, you will need to attach your proof of status to the email."

3 – Press “Send for Status Match” to auto-populate an email to National

Why should you put forth the minimal effort to earn Executive Elite Status?

Well for starters, National is my absolute favorite rental car company! Why? Well because you get to choose the car you want without ever having to wait in like at the check-in counter!

Have you ever experienced a long line at the rental car check-in counter? Did you enjoy your time there? Didn’t think so…

Emerald Club members can choose ANY car from the Emerald Aisle, while Executive and Executive Elite members get to choose from either the Emerald Aisle, or the Executive Aisle, which features a more premium car selection!

What else makes Executive Elite Status so great and worth 3 minutes of your time?
