I just rechecked the costco rate and its 600$...so less than the others, but far from last years prices....

I am willing to pay the 300$ for a mini-van, but I will be very unhappy if I hear that others ended up picking them up for free in a full size aisle on Monday!!
Join the emerald club (for free) make your reservation via the EC login, apply the coupon ND9334SND to the reservation and perhaps there will be a mini van on the aisle, you can always ask too. For your dates and times the cost would be 187.95 (total). that rate is for the default midsize car. That is what the EC bases it's rates on. Keep the mini van reservation just in case. Lately it has been mini van city at National.

I wish people would not post this. Because it encourages the people who book cheap assuming "we will get the upgrade" who then become hysterical when they get what they booked

If you can't work with an Economy do not book it

Just returned on Sat and had a wonderful time. We have used Alamo many times in the past and we were always charged the amount that I booked with. This year when I checked out I noticed I was charge $99.76 instead of $99.12 this was our first time it wasn't the same amount, not sure why the increase but just wanted to pass the info along.

We were fine with an Aveo...we got lucky and thought we'd share the pleasant surprise. It's sad that our good fortune put so many of you in a bad mood. Whatever...

I had dollar for 9 days at $235. Just tried Priceline and put in $12/day and it was accepted on first try for compact. Probably could have gotten it lower. 9/28 - 10/6 flying into JAX with Avis.

Anyone know where I can find a printable free upgrade coupon?

Always nice to find a bonus car sitting in 'your' aisle but it's not the norm.

IMO, it's important to have it pointed out here (especially for those not familiar with how things typically work) to avoid confusion/disappointment. People really need to book the minimum category they require as to seating and luggage constraints...and then hope to find a goodie on the aisle.

I don't think you can upgrade a Priceline reservation.

Is the Costco code 7014627 working for anyone?

There used to be a discount to show up, but now nothing.

Maybe it's expired?

I have a reservation booked with the AA code AD2359FDF, my Insider ID, and the Costco code 7014627.

When I try to enter the Costco code today, no discount shows up.

Usually that means that no discounts are available, seems crazy to me because no matter what dates i've put in recently do not yield any kind of discount ! Costco used to always get me a really good rate !

Are you using the American Airlines offer? It's pretty good at $35 off. You just need to be part of their AA Advantage program which is free to sign up.
