I just picked up my car today in Dana Point, CA. Full size, with GPS, and XM radio for 3 days, unlimited mileage - $31.36 OTD. I know it says $34.4 below but my receipt says $31.36. I used Bank of America CDP, Rate code: XCTI. Booked it with Hertz Gold membership. Went back in and applied coupon code 135892. They were sold out of cars throughout Orange County, CA supposedly because of the weekend rates. They had turned away 3 people that were their to pick up their cars. One girl had a reservation at 8am and got there at 9am and they said sorry you're late. Because I'm a gold member they saved my can (again, supposedly).

I'd like to know the answer to this as well. In a similar situation, but don't want to be penalized for returning a day early.
So no one knows if there is a penalty for early return? Guess I'll have to ask at the check in desk. I called the location but of course got put into perma hold with no human available to answer the phone.

I was able to book a four day rental from LAX by going to their Hilton office right by the airport for $48 using my USAA CDP, the promo code above and FRDM as the rate code.

If you try and return over an hour early, you may subject yourself to a penalty. YMMV as some offices don't care and others may say you are breaking your rental contract. Personally, if you tell them you are catching a flight and want to get to the airport in time to get through security, they don't bat an eye and keep it human.

You must check the box that says keep current rate code. Then add the coupon.

I also did not rent from an airport so I don't have the facility charge. Depending on the airport, I have often gone offsite to rent. I have booked 2 other dates and got the same $30 ish rate for the 3 days. For Thanksgiving weekend, the best rate I could get is $60. for the 3 days for a fullsize. Not great but not bad, I guess.

Do you mind including a screenshot somehow? I don't see a checkbox for keep current rate code. All I see is a checkbox for "enter a discount or promo code". Did you do log into your Hertz acount to make the reservation? The code does give me a discount - if I just use my regular account, I see an Altima at $34/day. With the code I get it down to $19.99/day. Still a big difference from the $14.99/weekend that OP said.

Make the reservation first. I signed into my account and made the reservation. When I received the e-mail, I went back in and changed the reservation and added the coupon. That's where you click to keep the same rate code.

I took a screen shot but don't know how to insert the screen shot.

Thanks. I'll try calling again tomorrow.

AMEX offers full coverage of rental vehicles for $25 per rental, not per day. I believe it is called the Premier Rental program. Chase Visa offers similar coverage with no charge.
All credit card companies have certain rental vehicle coverage on certain cards but you have to know the small print for them. Some have a high deductible, some only cover the first thousand dollars of damage. They all require you to pay out at least your deductible with your car insurance first before you can get into another car and then will reimburse.

I tried doing the same, but the system wouldn't let me use the coupon code and the XCT1 rate plan together. Basically, it said the car I wanted was unavailable and some garbage about how the codes can't be used together. I wonder if they've changed it since you did it (or maybe it's just my particular location).

Your winning bid might have been $8/day but you paid more than that.

Check the fees next time. I never use Priceline anymore because I can find better deals using discount code and coupons directly on the car rental websites.
Spot on bro.

I picked up my car again this past weekend. This time the computer had changed the rate and took off the coupon. I had the print out saying my rate was $30. for the 3 days, full size car. The agent called the manager and they both said sorry no go. You can not combine the FRDM rate with the coupon. I called the Gold desk. They pulled up the reservation and said that after my res was booked they changed it so that they were not combinable. The did agree to honor the rate because I had it in writing. Big pain in the butt though. Returned the car today and the total for the 3 days was $28.56
