Thanks to everyone who took the time to enter to win the Alamo prize pack that includes goodies such as $100 in Amex gift cards, a Kindle, a portable DVD player, and more. The giveaway was in honor of Alamo re-launching their website with the new “Deal Retriever” that they say “searches all valid Alamo deals and coupons on the web to find the best rates to meet customers’ needs”.
From reading the hundreds of comments it seems that their new tool was pretty well received. As I said in the original post, I am sure that those who are used to searching through forums for coupon codes may still save the most going that route, but their “Deal Retriever” does seem to be pretty decent at coming back with a competitive quote most of the time.
The randomly selected winner of the Alamo prize pack is:

I just tried to do a search for an upcoming rental I have and it didn’t really pull up anything useful. It’s last minute, though, so it might work better for further out dates. Definitely a good idea, might need a little work on the execution front.
Thanks again to everyone for entering the contest and providing Alamo with some feedback about their new tool! Congrats to Jess – I will be emailing you soon to connect you with your prize pack.
