Title: Activating Car Rental Elite Status from Mastercard World Elite
Post by: kangarruu on April 28, 2014, 09:52:28 PM
I couldn't find an existing thread on this.

Mastercard says that World Elite Mastercards provide Avis First, National Executive, and Sixt Platinum status (here (http://www.mastercard.us/travel/world-elite-summary.html?choice=car)). I've called Mastercard, Citi, and Avis, and no one seems to know how to activate this benefit. Does anyone have any idea which number I can call?

The number on the back of my AA Exec card goes to Citi. The reps (or at least the ones I've gotten) have no idea what I'm talking about and just transfer me to MasterCard when I tell turn it's on the MasterCard website.

On the page after I put in my license information there was a section that said MasterCard Elite. The application (which I had to fill out even though I already have an Emerald account) said source code 2090 and contract ID 5030261. After that page, the left side of the page said Executive, and it showed up on my account right away.

I had the MasterCard set as the default payment method in my profile on both Avis and National. I assume they verified it from there, but it might be worth trying it with a vanilla account and seeing what happens.

My Avis status posted in less than 12 hours.

the reason why some of the ddf'ers didn't get Avis First status is: they wob't upgrade you under this offer if you're under 25.

Post by: Novo on May 06, 2014, 12:05:29 AM
This is what I figured out
1) if you don't have an Avis preferred account, just sign up using the link in the wiki. You should be upgraded to "First" within 24 hours (might be instantly).

2) If you do have an Avis Preferred account.
2.1) If you're 25 or older use the email link which you'll find on the bottom of the page. If you're not getting the upgrade after 24 hours, just call 866-842-5552 #3 and ask them to be upgraded
2.2) if you're under 25 sign up for a new account with the link in the wiki (make sure to select "I don't have a wizard number ) you'll get the status immediately you'll get a new account and if you have any rental credits it won't transfer if you do figure out how to combine the accounts please let us know

Weird. Maybe try emailing again? This is what I wrote:

Original Message Follows: ------------------------

Dear Avis,

I recently became an Avis First member. I tried to create an account at avisfirst.com, but I get an error saying I'm not an Avis First member. My Wizard number is ******.

Thank you,

I got an email apologizing and setting it up.

I send them your email and this is the response I got

Dear

Thank you for contacting Avis Customer Service.

Our records show that you receive Avis First status through your
corporate affiliation with Mastercard. These type of accounts allow
members to have immediate Avis First status, and take advantage of the
one car class upgrades where available.

Our records indicate you are eligible to receive a one car upgrade where
available, as an Avis First member.  In order to start receiving the two
free weekend day coupons, you must meet the rental requirement threshold
of 12 rentals or 35 rental days in the calendar year.  Once this is
accomplished you will be invited to activate your account at
avisfirst.com.

We hope this explanation has fully answered your questions.

Kind Regards,

Jennifer Kirby
Customer Service Representative
