Free Sixt Platinum card for Club Carlson Gold members (and lots of other schemes)

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

I mentioned last week, in a throw away line in another post, that Gold members of Starwood Preferred Guest can claim Gold status with car rental group Sixt.

SPG Gold is a free benefit from American Express Platinum so a lot of Head for Points readers will have one.

Reader Dr Phil chipped in with something even better – a link offering free Platinum status in the Sixt programme for Club Carlson Gold members.  Club Carlson Gold is also an Amex Platinum benefit.

It isn’t just limited to Club Carlson Gold either.  It also applies to (and this is just a sample, see the link below for the full list) SPG Platinum, Hilton Diamond, Etihad Gold, Emirates Gold, Flying Blue Platinum and Miles & More Senator.

Sixt Platinum

To get your free Sixt Platinum card via the schemes above, simply visit this website.  If you have lower tier status in these programmes you may qualify for Sixt Gold – see this link.

The key benefits of Platinum and Gold are:

15% off car and truck rentals (10% for Gold)

Quick Check-In

Mobile Check-In

An upgrade (not clear if guaranteed)

The middle two can be lifesavers when collecting a car at a crowded airport location.
