The United Presidential Plus credit card no longer accepts new applications. It was a legacy card from Continental Airlines before the merger with United. One of its most unique benefits is Avis President’s Club status for car rentals, which offers:
The best benefit is the two-car-class upgrade, which when you book a Full Size vehicle means you could end up driving an expensive Luxury class vehicle for no extra charge. And occasionally, Avis is generous in offering some of its more interesting cars like Volvos, BMWs, and Infinitis to President’s Club members.
This benefit used to be offered with the United Club Card from Chase, which is a card that’s still available. But that got downgraded to basic Avis ‘First’ status which is a level below President’s Club and only offers one card class upgrades.
The good news is, Avis has just confirmed the President’s Club status will remain in effect again in 2014 for Presidential Plus card holders. Here’s the message they sent:
Avis President’s Club status and the ability to earn Premier Qualifying Miles via credit card spending are two unique features of the Presidential Plus card that can’t be found in any card available today. So if you have it, think twice before canceling it or switching to the United Club card.
