Started bidding using "bonus cash" from Priceline:
1. Full size - bid $7 + $3 bonus cash = rejected
2. Mid-size - bid $9 + $3 bonus cash = rejected
3. Standard - bid $12 + $3 bonus cash = rejected
Waited until a few days later:
4. Full size - bid $18 = accepted with Hertz
Seems like the Priceline "bonus cash" is worthless. Also, the above daily rate is before they add on all the other stuff, which totaled as much as the rental itself.
I can assure you that bonus money is not worthless. Every time someone brings that up, others will refute it. We have tons of examples of this. There is a discussion about bonus money in the Member Announcements forum.
