  • 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.

Excellent, thanks everyone!  What is BMG?  I did a search for it on DDF and all I found were a bunch of references to BMG, but not necessarily saying what it is.  And I guess I need to sign up to be a part of BMG so I won't have a problem redeeming this rate?

Totally serious.  But thanks to your comment I did a clever Google search and came up with Blazer Media Group. 

My original question still stands - are there any caveats for using a BMG code?  I'm certain I saw other previous comments where people were asked for identification when using a Chabad/USAA code (but the obvious way around that - sign up for Chabad/USAA memebership, right?).

well if you can sign up for military benefits -USAA- making believe you are part of the military then i guess you can sign up to chabad online and consider yourself chabad?!

Incorrect. When u sign up at USAA you are asked if you are a member, even if you answer to the negative. You are granted USAA memebership. You are still only eligible for part of the USAA benefits, which include using their corp. Codes

All right car rental gurus, looking for:

any size car at MIA airport
12/24/11 @ 11:59 PM - 12/26/11 @ 9 PM

The cheapest i found was $33/day using Enterprise Chabad. The problem is they close at midnight and the flight lands at 11:20 pm

update: I called Enterprise. They said if you show up after 12, National next door will honor the reservation at the same price as booked...
I dont think it can be found for cheaper, but ive been surprised before.
