The offer, which applies to both new and existing customers of both services, includes:
NEW MEMBERS: Join both and receive $75 in Zipcar credit
EXISTING DIVVY MEMBERS: Join both and receive $50 in Zipcar credit
EXISTING ZIPCAR MEMBERS: Join both and pay $75 for Divvy's premium "Gear" membership - originally worth $125
