Save Money

Do you enjoy having funds? Do you want to participate in excellent activities but are put off by how much they could cost? Do you travel a lot for work but get a bit squeamish when you actually have to spend your own money on personal travel?

If you answered yes to all of the above questions, then I have some INCREDXELLENT™ news! You ARE me!

Now that you are me, there are some things you should know:

A) You are incredibly powerful, use that power responsibly.
B) People don't like how powerful/awesome you are, and they will make fun of your height.
C) You are a giant freak and need to watch the overhead monitors in airplanes when walking down the aisle.
D) You WILL hit your head on those overhead monitors in airplanes at least 4 times per flight.
E) You WILL forget where you are going with certain points when writing.

Here is an excellent tip on saving money when renting a car. If you are a Hertz Gold Five Star member, or any level of Gold member, there is a neat trick I have discovered that could help you save money. As you know, if you attempt to book a rental through the Hertz website, you will be presented with rental options that are way over priced. For four days this weekend, they wanted over $500. Thats ridiculous. So I went to hotwire.com where I know I can get stuff for cheaper. Rental prices were, for the same four days, more like $267. And you know the kicker? It was from Hertz. So I booked the Hertz rental, through hotwire. Since I didn't do it through Hertz, I wasn't able to apply my Gold status. Well, THAT CERTAINLY WON'T DO. So I called Hertz up, asked them if they could apply my gold status to the rental, and they did!

So, now I get all the benefits of the gold status as if I booked it through the Hertz website, without paying their ridiculous prices.

We will see how it goes but I may have just found a nice little loop hole.
