My father is a usaa member will.that help?
What usaa products does he have? In general, if your father is a usaa insurance member or account holder, you are also eligible for USAA products.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

He's usaa as much as he's Barry57. Neither one is his real name, but is used to identify him in a specific context.
hey we were taught to be nice to each other,
We're supposed to give Newbies a chance.....
P.s. I'm vouching for him
:) Smile & G-d will give u a reason to smile

Huh? I just meant that his username isn't his real name, unless they named him barry57 by his bris.

Was told that UR portal has very good rates on one way rentals but it doesn't let me enter anything in the drop-off location field. Instead it says "Same As Pick-Up". Anyone know why it's not allowing?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Pickup location: LGA
Drop Off location: PHL
Pickup date & time: 9/30/15 @3 PM
Drop Off Date & Time: 10/7/15 @3 PM
Preferred Car Size: full size or bigger - a full size SUV or minivan would be amazing
Age (if under 25): above 25
Best quote: 317.94 for a full size (Thrifty through carrentals.com)

Anyone know a website or rental company that's known for giving good prices on one way rentals? If I could get a much better price on a rental that drops off at the same location (either LGA or PHL) I'd consider that too.
