Gilt City is having a nation wide Zip Car sale where there are two packages for purchase that essentially give you a free one-year membership. This offer is for new members only and is definitely a great deal if you have been planning on purchasing a Zip Car membership anyways (which typically isn’t cheap at about $60 for the year).

Package #1: $30

  • One Zipcar membership
  • Application fee ($25 value)
  • Annual fee for one year ($60 value)
  • $30 driving credit

With this package you are paying $30, but getting the $30 back in driving credit, so evens itself out.

Package #2: $100

  • One Zipcar membership
  • Application fee ($25 value)
  • Annual fee for one year ($60 value)
  • $150 driving credit

With this package you are paying $100, but getting $150 towards driving credit. So not only are you getting a free membership year, you are also getting a bonus $50 credit on top of what you already laid out.

If you plan on driving it enough, the 2nd package is by far the better value. You can read more about individual rates per hour and day on their website here – make sure to select your city of choice as rates differ per city.

Although Zipcar is located in many cities across the US, Canada, and UK (view cities here) along with over 100 campus universities in the US (view campuses here), this offer is only valid for residents driving in the following metro areas only: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Washington D.C.

Although I have a car (one between me and the Mr.), I might actually get Package #2 to give me the option of a car when needed – there are a few times a year when both me and Mr. Deals need the car for the day to go our separate direction). And remember, since Zip Cars include gas it makes this deal even better! If you are going to drive close to the maximum 180 allotted miles, this is saving you about $30 at the gas station!
