If you’re planning to rent a car this summer and are looking to snag a “hip” deal, then you’ll definitely want to sign up for FREE to be a member of the Alamo Insiders club. By signing up, you’ll receive awesome discounts – like $20 off weekly rates (5 day minimum rental) through June 18, 2012 and FREE Double upgrades through June 22, 2012. You’ll also be guaranteed at least a 10% discount off their retail rates when you book on If there’s a better promotion going on, you will automatically receive the best available rate instead of the 10% discount. Sounds good to me!

Check out some of the comments that several readers left about the savings they scored just by booking through the Alamo Insiders Club…

I was just about to book an SUV for a 17 day trip through another company thinking that  our USAA discount was the lowest price. Then I checked Alamo and the same car was $200 less!!! I think they were doing a special on SUVs because it was even cheaper than renting a sedan. We don’t pick the car up until August but so far I am impressed!!!

We had a great experience renting with Alamo last month. Cars were clean and great. No issues whatsoever. We even got to pick the car we wanted in the garage. Most companies give you the option at the counter but it’s way more fun to hop in a few cars and check their backseat and trunk space. Especially with babies, car seats, and strollers. Then drive up and check the car out in the category paid for.

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
