Has anyone used part of their Discover Cashback Bonus dollars ($20) to buy the $40 Alamo credit? I'm wondering if the one-time use code you get is just a coupon code....such that I won't be able to use the Costco code AND the Discover-purchased code. If I could use both, then I would pull the trigger.

Those are all the bad reviews that I'm hearing about. It is location specific.

I have dollar locally here as well and no problems.

With 155 reviews on Dollar from viewpoints and 81 reviews from review center for 1.5 stars, there must be a reason for it.

I booked it thru Costco on July 26th using the AD2359FDF $35 off coupon

I still think they might come down again this week but it will be hit or miss, late night and early morning .. check the websites then

Re-checked my rates today with Alamo. My resi for a standard (full size) dropped by $5.00. Not a big move, but ever little bit helps. However, the midsize resi stayed the same??? I am still holding out for a price drop over the next 3 weeks.

I used the Costco code along with the $35 off coupon - AD2359FDF.

Sorry, that's just not been our experience. We go to Orlando 2-3 times a year and most of the time we rent Dollar , we have also rented Alamo and Enterprise.

We have never had an issue with Dollar. However, with Alamo we had double charges twice and one time the counter person tried to charge me more my reservation stated..even showing it to him, he tried to argue with me. Enterprise was really bad on trying to upsell everything, insurance, etc.

Maybe it makes a difference that we are signed up with the Dollar Program, but I doubt it, as I sign up for any program available when I do business with any company.

Just my experience, but it's true. We have never had a problem with Dollar, not once in 20+ years.

Prices, as of this evening, at Dollar:

1 week beginning Sept. 21

intermediate......$77 a week
Full Size............$84 a week
Mini Van...........$169.65 a week

These prices are all before taxes and fees, which are quite high out of MCO. In fact depending on the length you rent it can almost double your cost. But, check it out, it might save you money.

Enterprise seems to be going down....I get $378 tax in for 7 days for a Minivan using Costco code CSTMAYC Sept 1-8.

I'm holding onto a Budget rental for $360 as my primary.

You can save over $100 with Budget using BCD x474200 (travelocity public code) and E-Coupon MUGZ029 for $30 off. Total is $272 inc taxes after coupon is applied when return minvan. Dollar is $235 inc taxes (click on special rate - no code required) but they charge $10/day for additional driver if that is important to you.

Thanks for the code! I think I originally applied those and the total was $270, but not including taxes.

Including taxes and fees, $359.27 for Sept 1-8th. I have an additional 3hrs since it's not exactly 7 days, which is maybe $30 extra.
