The rates seem pretty cheap right now, just also had a 53 day rental that was 1299
Managed to get a new BMW 740 from the aisle (not as an upgrade) too!
What location?

Nice. National seems to be only keeping high mileage cars on the lots right now. DEN was nearly empty, and FLL was totally empty. They asked what we needed and brought it out. I reserved midsize and got a Nissan Armada. Also Executive Elite status. In Denver they gave me a Volkswagen Atlas.

Price:  $70 total after tax (incl. liability) for one day

Asked for an upgrade which they have been emailing about, was offered a sentra. When we went for walk around, noticed a screw in the tire. They offered a dodge charger or rogue, I asked for charger. They went to clean it, then came back saying it had a maintenance issue, so they gave me the outlander
