    Just rented a compact (with 1 car class upgrade) from Enterprise through Costco for $159 (tax included) for 5/4 - 10. Dollar has similar rates but they charge crazy fees if you use the electronic tolls. Dollar charges $7.99 per day if you use the electronic tolls or not (unless you opt out) while Enterprise/National/Alamo charge $2.95 per day for only the days you use the electronic tolls. No-brainer for me...

    I didn't realize it was a BJ coupon, until after I'd already booked it and then researched it, but was able to get a midsize at Alamo for eleven days, May 10th-20th, for $210.00 (all fees included) using Alamo Insider's, Visa 7015504, and AD8Z21SDB. AD8Z21SDB is apparently a BJ's code (which I'm not elegible for--sure glad I checked on it). Hopefully someone who is a member of BJs might be able to use it.

    Just booked with Alamo 4/29-5/7 for $164 including tax for a full size. I used code AD2338FDF which I believe is a visa code. Does anyone know if a Visa DEBIT CARD will be ok to pay with?

    I still have Thrifty booked for $174, I'll hold on to both just incase.

    Finally went ahead and booked a rental for our May trip, 5th-10th. I got a compact at Dollar for $144 ($97 base + $47 taxes & fees) using no codes and selecting the City Special.

    Whohoo-just got a full size for $150. That is the cheapest we have ever gotten a car rental in Florida. Still can't decide if we want to do car rental or just busses but at least I have a couple of months to think about it. Yay!

    Just booked a full size from may 1-8 for $150. Don't remember ever getting such a good deal on a rental. Still can't decide between disney busses and a car but at least I have a couple of months to figure it out. Yay!!

    I just rebooked with these codes. The first one is Travelocity and I honestly don't know where the second one is from- but for the first time it took the discount off right away, and it's even less! Makes me a bit nervous....someone said it is an AARP but I have no idea. My good friend is going before me and will be attempting to use these same codes. Maybe I will book at Dollar using the city specials as a plan B. I just hope it works cause 312 total for a minivan for 8 days for me seems perfect!!!

    MUWZ023 is just a general e-coupon that Budget offers.

    thank you for the answer :) this code usually doesn't take out the $25 right away but it now does and you can now see the final amount you need to pay. it is a very good deal for us compared to the dollar city specials at this time.... hoping it will still go down more... we booked standard SUV for around $275 :)

    Anyone try to do online check in with these codes? I try and they cais can't do it online must call. I would love to skip the counter and use the kiosk.

    You can't do online check in if you'are using a coupon. If you're an Insider, you can check in at the kiosk, whether or not you're using a coupon.

    Am I the only one noticing prices going up? Is this common 2 months out? Will they go down again? I made a reservation but I'm hoping for another drop so I can upgrade.
