#1, don't use your UR points at $0.01 each.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I'm not. I'm getting them at 1.25 since the $ price they are asking is $255.60. However, that still seems kind of high. Last year I was able to get a Cruze for a week at $122 from AVIS after discounts. Not seeing anything so decent this time around.

Pickup location: Brooklyn, New York / JFK
Drop Off location: Brooklyn, New York / JFK
Pickup date & time: June 14th 2016 noon
Drop Off Date & Time Aug 30th 2016 morning
Preferred Car Size: Minivan (7 seats + baggage)

Best quote: ~4000$ from Enterprise with Chabad code (BTW do they ask for proof?)

Thanks
Moshe

I think the Jewish places charge about $900/$1000 a month. You'd have to change credit cards in the middle for insurance purposes.
