Does anyone know how I can get any coupons or discounts for a move we will be making from Nevada to Michigan. I have heard sometimes they put out coupons...

They put discounts on their web site - depending on each location's inventory. You can search nearby locations and find some that offer significant discounts. Since Penske doens't charge a 'one-way fee' and no-mileage fees (normally), they are quite competitive when you search the rental companies.

When budgeting, don't forget diesel fuel is still higher than unleaded.

As a AAA member, there was an additional discount off the webprice when I moved. The AAA member was $60, and the discount was $100+, so it was worth joining (plus the AAA card got me discounted motel prices for the trip).

You can also check out the change of address kit at the Post Office. They usually have coupons in there as well.

I am moving from Kansas to Florida. I also am a AAA Member. The price I was quoted, was almost $500 less than the nearest competitor. That price included the insurance on the truck! Thanks!!

Get a quote from a competitor. If the competitor's quote is cheaper than Penske, Penske will (usually) match it. At least they did for me with my last one-way truck rental. I don't think they'll match a price and give you a coupon rate, though.

I agree with C99....Penske did that for me one time and saved me over $400 on a one way rental from Oregon to Texas

Penske has 2 STACKING discounts.

Do it on the internet AND put in a AAA club number for like 18% off.

No, in fact the 12' truck I drove last summer ran on regular unleaded.
