Will AutoSlash Save You Money on Car Rentals?

Last year, I wrote about the best ways to save money on car rentals.  At the time, 1 of the best tools to use was AutoSlash.  But they stopped working (properly) after a while.

But now, folks report that AutoSlash is back.  AutoSlash will track your car rental reservations for price drops, and re-book you at the lower rate if your rental becomes cheaper.

They’ll watch reservations made with most major car rental agencies.  And if you booked your car through AutoSlash, they’ll monitor your reservation automatically.

I decided to experiment again (not like this) to see if AutoSlash could save you money.

Can You Book a Friend Using the Club Carlson Free Award Night?

Million Mile Secrets reader Bill emails:

Love your blog, thanks for all the points you’ve helped me get!

I have a little Club Carlson tip for you in case you didn’t already know.

I just made a 2 night reservation (using points from my Club Carlson account) for a friend, so the guest name is not my name.  As a result of the guest name not matching my Club Carlson account name (or not matching my Club Carlson Visa name), the 2nd night was NOT free like it usually is.  So I called Club Carlson and the rep kindly fixed the reservation so the 2nd night would be free.

So it is possible to get the 2nd night free when booking Club Carlson with points for a friend, you just have to call Carlson and ask for it.

This is an interesting tip!  One of the best perks of the Club Carlson Premier Rewards card is the free night when you book 2 or more consecutive award nights.  On a 2-night stay, it’s like getting the room for half the number of points!

Club Carlson Visa Cardholders Get Their Last Night Free on Award Stays of 2 Nights or More

But according to the terms and conditions, the Club Carlson Visa cardholder must be traveling to get the free award night!

So did Bill just get lucky?
