Whole lot of hassle for something that can be done a lot easier.
But I applaud your ethics :)

what can be done easier?
switching cards with silver car or redeeming travel expense

Apparently you can't make a reservation more than six months out... Anyone have success booking and then changing to a later date?

Can I make multiple accounts to get first-time user credit, or is it linked to my driver's license?

Thought I should mention.
Denver hours are until 11 pm.
I landed today at 12:20 and they waited to give me a car.
Can't complain!

You decline CDL, it's your choice if you want liability insurance.
Just checked, I entered PERSONAL and wrote the provider, if you want to take liability then select Silvercar and choose what you need

Are there any codes for longer rental periods? They don't seem to have weekly rates either, so it seems like it becomes less attractive an option the longer the rental. I'm probably gonna be renting in Miami in August. For 2 or 3 days, it's a no brainer. For a week, not as much. If I absolutely needed a luxury car, it's still a great deal, but I don't.
