Rental Cars – Don’t pay top dollar! Enter the dates of your visit and compare prices from virtually every major rental car agency (most US cities). Book the lowest price company or your regular agency. Save the hassle and some money – Car Rental Savings Search. Few regret renting a car. Free shuttles and city bus rides can be slow and smelly. Taxis can cost what a rental car costs. Your vacation time is valuable — make the most out of it!

LETTER TO THE EDITOR:

>Enjoy you newsletter..I do have a couple of questions.
>áá l. I see for two weeks that the winners of the couponsá were from
>California. since I’m from NY we don’t get your letter until after
>midnightá and we are in bed.á Is there anyway we would ever have a
>chance at these?
>ááááááá Thanks for all your good information.

Thanks for your concern. We make every effort to make the chance of winning the coupons and prizes as random as possible. We choose the 10’th entry. Some days, we have 20 entries in a few hours. Sometimes it takes 2 days to hit that 10’th entry mark. Please keep in mind that the number of subscribers who are going to be in Las Vegas during the dates the coupons are valid is both small and variable. So, it is sheer luck to be the 10’th considering all of the above.

By far, more Californians visit Las Vegas than from any other state or country, which probably means that more Californians subscribe to this newsletter. Having said all that, only one of our three winners this past week was from California, and we welcome readers from around the world!
