Oh crud. Sorry everyone. I had searched for "Kauai Car" and for "Lihue Car" but the other deal didn't appear in the search results. I just wanted to alert others to the super low prices available right now in Kauai.
I stumbled into the lower prices tonight while trying to beat an Alamo car rental price that I had reserved 2 nights ago @ CostcoTravel. It really paid off as I lowered my 11 day rental cost from $350 down to $250. Two months ago the lowest price for the same rental was $462.
Your rental dates include a blackout period where coupon MUGZ041 isn't valid: SUMMER US-2013: 2013-07-01/2013-08-14. Either choose a car below to continue without the coupon discount or go back and enter different rental dates.
Getting the error message "Whoops! MUGZ041 is not a valid coupon code. Either choose a car below to continue without the coupon discount or go back and change your entry." for a one week rental starting tomorrow. Any ideas?
I went through the Costco Travel site and got a car rental during the blackout period (8/8 to 8/12). As expected, it didn't apply any discount to the rental rate. However it did apply a one-category upgrade coupon (subject to car availability). I tried it later by going direct through the Budget website. It seems to work regardless of which BCD you use, so some users who can't use the MUGZ041 coupon may find it useful:
i did this deal (not even thinking to share here, sorry) last week. i retried again today and it was $27 less for 8 days in tampa. the best deal seems to be a week. adding those 12 extra hours on the 8th day added $50 to a $130 rental. still far less than anything else i've seen.
It used to be said that an infinite number of monkeys with typewriters would eventaully write all the great works of literature by random chance.
Thanks to Twitter and Facebook we now know this is not true.

Sorry if this has been asked before...I followed OP's instructions and reserved a car, but don't see anywhere says you have to be a Costco member...will they require me to show the member card when I pick up the car? thanks!!
Is anyone getting this same problem? I used the 2 codes successfully for a week rental in Kauai in August and my 1st quotation page gave me $167.
But when I go ahead and select it, the price changes to $242, even when it states that all the discounts were applied.
I even booked it to see if there was a mistake, but it gives me the higher rate.
I have tried this over the past few days and always the same thing.
Any help? Thanks
I tried this code on 2 rentals in june (OGG and HNL), and it was almost as cheap as the best I was able to get with carrentalsaver, so I left those reservations alone...
I was also able to save $50 compared to the same web search over the weekend for Labor day week in SFO. However, I am concerned about requiring to prove I have a COSTCO membership (I don't). so I kept the reservation (pay at counter). I will continue to search for a better rate, and perhaps a backup reservation in case budget won't give me the reservation without the costco membership...
My booking was accepted using the code for a rental beginning 6/30/13 but the the week after which would be in the blackout period. Will I have a problem do you think when I pickup the car on 6/30 that they say the week after is in the blackout period? The system used the code and accepted online the week after.
