Had anyone used the Argentina residency rate and can update how it worked? Did Hertz made any problems?

how exactly are you getting $140 from hertz?
I reserved early, and it may help that it's in Milwaukee, what prices are you seeing?

Do you know how I can get a good deal on a convertible for one day @ LAX (returning to LAX) for tomorrow afternoon, 11/23 to 11/24?
I have an AMEX platinum if that helps at all.
I still don't understand how to work the car rental system. I've just been using hotwire or priceline. I don't know how everyone uses these expensive brand names like hertz and avis?

welcome to the forums!

if u will read thru the diff rental threads u will see how they are not as expensive as u may think. and u can actually get great deals.
so in ur particular case i have with hertz a convertible at LAX - with USAA corp. and changing the Country to Uruguay, a total of $97.67.
how much do u see on priceline?

well u dont know which company ur getting first of all so if u dont care which company or dont care to pile up points for a certain company then go ahead and if ur under 25 then at hot wire there are no cars showing , and if ur  18-21 then u can only rent with hertz
