Those Dollar rates aren't working for me. I chose City Specials for April 12-20 (noon pickup at the airport) and the best rate I see is $264 for a Ford Focus.

Got the great Dollar deal as i posted previously, but then saw the Alamo deal, went over, modified a previous reservation and now have a full size from Apr 11-18 for $143. Now these are the deals I have seen in prior years - hoping to have it close or under $100. by April vacation!! Thanks everyone...

I believe the codes used were the visa code, AD2338FDF, and if you are signed up to be an alamo insider or with southwest rapid rewards.

Thank you for the southwest code, I didn't have it handy but I used the visa code and alamo insiders and I got the same rate as the PP. Not my time frame but I just wanted to see if it worked.

There was no code. I inputed my dates and pulled up the cars available. Then in the middle of the postings was a blinking "city specials". I clicked on that and the car I had reserved came up $10 cheaper.... $109 per week down to $99 per week. I hope this helps

Yes, absolutely, I am happy to share Dan and everyone else. I used my Rapid Rewards 7016105 from Southwest, and the Visa coupon AD2338FDF. I could not believe how the prices plummeted in one day, but they always seem to fall in the middle of the week.
Good luck everyone ...

Hey Dan - we should connect, if even for a few minutes. How awesome for Natalie and the kids to join you.

Kassidy's Dad - i got my Alamo reservation up on my screen, and if you scroll to the bottom, one of their options is to modify your reservation, so I put in the new numbers and voila, the new price was set. Hope this helps.

You must have a magic touch - No matter what browser I use , etc, i cant see any of my reservations, I keep getting the dreaded " Invalid value" It is frustrating. I just tried, same thing - Invalid value
