I just rented from Hertz @ JFK under USAA and they did ask me for ID so I showed them my confirmation email from USAA after signing up online...
i just rented from hertz as well, and they asked me for my USAA card i showed them my welcome letter, they said they will allow it this time, however, they put in my account notes that i need a official letter or card!!

thats weird bec. on your welcome letter it shud have a member ID # and thats proof you are part of the corporate but anyhow you can apply for a debit card and that should work.

Do they do a hard pull for the debit card?

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

where did u find that ? avis.com?
i just checked avis.com those dates, with that code and coupon, and it says coupon is expired and the total after taxes comes out to $230.20 and only 375 miles included (.40 per extra mile)
