  1. I don’t see any confirmation on the National page that you’re signing up for anything other than standard Emerald club. Where do you see that you’re signing up for executive elite? Also, I am already executive, is there any way to upgrade my current membership to executive elite?

  2. Upon further investigation, it looks like the world elite mastercard offer for National is for a 1 year trial of Executive membership, and not for Executive Elite. Is anyone able to confirm this offer is for executive elite?

  3. I currently have BarclayPlus World Elite Mastercard and National Executive Status. How can I upgrade to Executive Elite Status?

  4. I’ve tried signing up for the Avis First several times, but see no indication of its success. As I enroll, I indicate that I have a wizard number (because I’m Avis Preferred). Then it asks for credit card, DL, or password. I enter one of these, and it simply takes me to my account. There’s nothing that states I’ve been upgraded or that it was successful. Anyone else have a similar experience?

  5. I also followed the link and given my Avis wizard number. After login it simply redirected to Avis Preferred login. Not sure what I did wrong !!!

  6. Looks like this is only for the World Elite cards according to the Avis landing page. My Barclays US Air isn’t a World Elite. It looks like Gary’s US Air got upgraded in May but by default I guess that card isn’t a World Elite. I don’t have any World Elite cards right now, too bad too I was interested in that Avis upgrade since I rent from them fairly regularly.

  7. When you click on the link “http://www.avis.com/car-rental/html/bridge/preferred/cwt/index.html”, under the “Continue” button there is a link
    Already have Preferred Service? Click here and provide your Name and Avis Wizard number and you will be upgraded to AVIS FIRST within 24 hours, subject to verification.

    Looks like we have to send email in the specified format after you click the link. Another point is the link tells “World MasterCard Elite” and there are few cards on that category. BTW which cards are qualified?

    @Daraius Could you please explain !!

  8. @Daraius
    More specific questions
    1) Who are eligible? All World Mastercard credit card holders or only Elite World Mastercard credit card holders?
    2) Is it a trial or free upgrade?

  9. So I just got Emerald Executive, not Emerald Executive Elite for National car rental…

    And do I have use World MasterCard to rent? I see I could add another credit card – may be CSP/UA Explorer, and mark that as primary card

  10. I am already an emerald club member (non-executive) and have the AA executive world elite mastercard. Can I get my account upgraded to executive? If so, how?

  11. I got Avis First this morning. S Dutta is right about the process. If you have Avis Preferred (which I did from the AMEX Plat) click on the link at the bottom that says “Already have Avis Preferred?” and it opens up an email window to fill out your name, city/state and wizard number to EMAIL to Avis. It took about 24 hours for me to be upgraded.

  12. For those asking about how to upgrade your current membership with national, a simple google search returns this link:
    http://www.nationalcar.com/offer/mcworldelite

    I followed the link, then click enroll. It does look like you are registering to National – AGAIN – but I used the same login and same password, and it worked. One caveat is it changes your company to MasterCard World Elite, I don’t know if that will cause any problem for corporate rentals.

    Thanks Daraius

  13. David, your link status you will only get Executive. So this post looks incorrect as you will not get Executive Elite status.

    FYI – I have signed up prior with my world elite card to get Executive status. With this new post I thought I might be able to get Elite status. Doesn’t seem so.

  14. Daraius, you put the misleading and wrong title there.
    “You can also get free National Emerald Club Executive elite status just for signing up!” <===== this is NOT RIGHT, as it's NOT Executive Elite but only Executive!!!! Please fix this as this misleading your blog reader and create a confusion.

  15. This might be known to others but I wasn’t initially aware that signing up for Avis First includes a free weekend rental simply for signing up! I wrote about my experience getting the code and using it.

  16. Thanks Ralph. I did notice that. I guess the promo code comes mailed to you is that correct? I’m waiting for mine and will definitely use it.

  18. HI all
    I too have a World Elite Mastercard (Barclaycard Arrival) and followed the link to sign up to AVIS (never had a wizard number before this) and all it did was sign me up as preferred. How do we get the AVIS First account upgrade we are meant to be seeing ?

    Thanks\

    BTW I looked for a section stating ‘Already have Preferred Service? Click here and provide your Name and Avis Wizard number and you will be upgraded to AVIS FIRST within 24 hours, subject to verification.’ but cannot see that anywhere

  19. I think that National perk is now gone. The World Elite page doesn’t show it any more and the National link to sign up gives this message: “MasterCard World Elite employee: Unfortunately the opportunity to enroll at the Executive level is no longer available.”
