Company: National
Status: EE
Location: BTV
Dates: 4 days
Reserved: Intermediate.
Received: '16 Chevy Tahoe LT
Price: $165
Coupon used: Honeywell (Desk agent said "Oh, you work in Honeywell? How nice! I used to work there! Do you know xxx, xxx, xxx? Did you hear about xxx? What do you think about it?"
Me: "Oh, wow, you don't want to open a hornet's nest. I don't like talking about work when I'm on vacation."
"Oh, of course, I totally understand. Don't blame you, knowing them.")
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Yeah i didn't even have to match- it was instant. I signed up for a sixt account, and during the process they ask if you have status with any other company. I simply put in my National # and said i was EE and my sixt account is Platinum.
