Today’s Daily Getaways reward is $25 Alamo rental certificates. To me, this is very similar to a Groupon purchase: spend $25 and get a $50 certificate towards your next Alamo rental. While this deal is nowhere close to a great deal, if you have an Alamo rental coming up, no harm is saving $25 (and if you use an AMEX credit card you will save an additional 10%). There are 2,000 of these certificates available, so luckily will probably not have to purchase this deal the second it goes on sale at noon EST today.
My only problem with these type of certificates (similar to Groupons) is that you cannot use the certificate with any other offers, discounts, promotional rates, etc. Many times I am able to do a quick google search for a rental car coupon and find a code for 1 free day or 20% off. In this case, this certificate is then pointless. The good thing is that you can combine up to three certificates per rental. For a one day rental in NYC where typically there are no coupon codes, this could be worthwhile.
