thanks to bryantdenny for pointing me to this.

these are the weekly rates before taxes and fees:
economy 2- or 4-door 119.00
compact 2- or 4-door 119.00
intermediate 2- or 4-door 139.00
intermediate SUV pay at counter 139.00
premium 2- or 4-door 139.00
standard 2- or 4-door 149.00
full-size 2- or 4-door 149.00
standard SUV 159.00

i got a ford edge for $247.91 TOTAL
for a week in mia in may - june. now i have to figure out if i want this or the Avis deal. i also applied coupon code MUWZ023 which is supposed to get me $25 off, but fine print says no coupons so it may not allow it.

my Avis deal was
Standard SUV Chevrolet Equinox or similar,
$259.67 USD for a week - $35 coupon (if they apply it) = $224.67
budget deal was
ford edge for $247.91 for a week - $25 coupon (if they apply it) = $222.91
so they are about the same.
think i might light the edge better than the Equinox, but still not sure.
they both have the same sunpass rates for fla.
i was really wanted a convertible so i have these as a backup plan and will see what i can find for last minute deals. i wonder if i called a few days ahead, if they would switch me to something else since the standard rate for these suv's are higher are about the same as a premium or standard convertible. also been looking at sixt, they are only in fla, but have more upscale cars like bmw or mb, just their reviews are either 10's or 0's with no middle ground.

I've been using this for the last four months. Each time it gets near the expiration date extend it even longer. The way to make the best of this is to rent an SUV but pay with a credit card that offers you free insurance and then don't buy any of the add on's they offer.
