What You'll Get
Things are always better when borrowed, such as time, chewing gum, and kidneys. Enjoy similar short-term satisfaction with today's Groupon: For $50, you get a one-year membership and $50 worth of driving credit from Zipcar (a $125 value).
Urbanites who ordinarily hoof it, use public transit, or ride on the backs of Tauntauns can't resist the convenience of Zipcar and its wheels-at-will without the hassles of car ownership. This Groupon covers the $25 membership sign-up fee, and gets you a year membership (a $50 value) and a $50 driving credit. Zipcars live in dozens of locations all over the city, with tons of models you can choose to drive. View vehicle availability online, and then reserve the car. Get an SUV with a ski-rack for the family's annual outing to Antarctica, a truck for heavy hauling, a hybrid for whale-saving, or a coupe for couping. The reservation includes driver's insurance and a gas card to fill up the tank. Reservations are billable by the hour or by the day, starting at $7 per hour and $68 per day, and reservations include 180 free miles per day. Click here to see complete rate info.
Signing up is easy; your Groupon will include simple instructions for redeeming on Zipcar's website. Please note: Anyone who doesn't meet Zipcar safe-driver requirements will not be eligible for membership, but will receive a complete refund in one to two weeks. You must activate your Groupon within the next month.
This Groupon is valid for new members in Chicagoland only.
