  • 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.

Looking for a convertible for 1/12-1/19 in Kauai not sure which discount to use.

I have Hertz Gold through Amex Platinum (not sure if I can get any other elite status through other companies).

Also, is it worth using points/miles on this rental?

Any help/suggestions is greatly appreciated!

hertz USAA brazil with pc#165406 comes out to $306 after taxes (without insurance ) for the Eclipse spider.
