Is there any Alamo coupon valid for 4 days without Sunday night keep?

Or can someone please tell me what the best deal is for 8/7-8/11/12 for MCO? Any car other than Compact/Economy? I tried the Amex, Costco and the German code and it is still expensive. Thanks in advance.

Edit to add: I currently have a reservation for a Midsize with E-Z rent a car for $122 total, but I am worried that this is a discount rent-a-car company and would prefer to go with the mainstream ones instead.

For 4 days like that I would bid on priceline and score a deal on a rental that way with one of the major car rental companies at MCO.

Even with the decrease it's still $2 more than my lowest rate- 9 days for $146 total midsize with Alamo (very end of August into September).

I'm really happy with my new rate of $176 for 11 days for a standard w/ Alamo. If it drops any more I'll be thrilled!

Well, lets hope it goes down even more for your dates!

I have a Standard (Fullsize) for 17 days, Aug 16-Sep 2 for $292.62. I haven't seen it go down any lower than that. I am totally ok with that price!

My dates are August 15th - 26th, and my rates haven't gone down since I booked it either. I am paying $198 for a standard car for pick up at MCO and drop off at Sanford Airport. While I would like it to go lower, I am pretty happy with that price, especially since I am picking up and dropping off in different locations. But, I will probably still check a couple times a day to see if I can save a few more $$.

I'm with Buffettgirl...I'm at $118 incl taxes for a full-size with my AP discount and the $35 coupon for the 17-24. I've been stalking Alamo everyday since I booked and haven't gotten anything close to that deal

I'll be so surprised if we see anything lower than that. Seems we scored big.

The rates finally came down for me today I stepped up to a standard (full size) and still saved $30!! with Alamo insiders and AD2359FDF I've tried every code and coupon and this works best for me, hopefully it will drop more. Linda

For those staying a week and needing a minivan, checkout the Advantage website. I got my minivan for 7 days for $201 including all taxes after using their $50 off coupon on the website's front page!

I'm not sure if I read it on this thread or another here on the DIS but can someone confirm that Alamo doesn't have a "Standard" lot at MCO, so you get a Full Size anyway? I'm almost positive I read that somewhere on here??
