Common sense is not a gift, it is a punishment.

I reserved this for now from Alamo as it was the best I could find (would love if anyone has discount codes). I should add, that if not significantly cheaper I'd stay with it as I got that through Chase UR site and am paying with points, but I'd cancel and pay cash for much cheaper. TIA!
