I'm an Avis PC and live in the Miami area and consistently was upgraded from a full size to luxury, specialty, specialty SUV and convertible.

It's a PC code (while USAA is a CDP code): 185301. Note, they're supposed to ask to see the coupon, but many time they don't...
In my post above, They obviously didn't take off the $25. I just noted that I used it since it may have played a role in the price I got.

I used the Hertz NeverLost GPS on this last rental, and found it to be much more intuitive then my Garmin. Anyone know what brand GPS this is?
