Will elite tiers be extended as a result of COVID-19 travel restrictions?
We’re continuing to closely monitor the impact of travel restrictions on our members during this global health emergency. As a result, the following changes are being made so you can enjoy the status and benefits you’ve earned, now and in the future:
Elite status will be extended. Current Executive and Executive Elite members with a tier set to expire on February 28, 2021 will receive a one-year extension and keep their status through February 28, 2022.
Qualifying rentals and rental days will roll over. If you achieve elite status in 2020, any paid rentals or paid rental days you have beyond your tier qualification will roll over to 2021 to give you a head start on earning toward elite status for 2022. Only the method in which you achieved elite status — either paid rentals or paid rental days — will roll over. For example: If you have 15 paid rentals this calendar year, and 12 paid rentals qualify you for Executive status, the remaining 3 rentals will roll over to 2021 and count toward elite qualification for the 2022 calendar year. If you don’t achieve elite status in 2020, all your paid rentals and paid rental days will roll over to 2021 and count toward elite qualification in 2022.
Emerald Club Elite Tier Qualifications
Executive: 12 rentals or 40 rental days
Executive Elite: 25 rentals or 85 rental days
Rentals or rental days beyond these qualifications will roll over to next year and count toward elite qualification in 2021, as noted above.
We’d also like to remind members that earned program reward free days‡ are valid for one full year after the year in which they were earned. So any program reward free days you earned in 2019 can be used through December 31, 2020.
Thank you for your continued loyalty during these challenging times.
