Ok, your pickup and dropoff times are giving you that rate. For some unknown reason, a week, a day and 2 hours gives you a significantly lower rate then running it as a week and a day.

I didnt even think that the extra 2 hours would have been the reason for the lower rate I'm getting.

We got a full size from Enterprise at MCO for 10 days for $231 including all taxes and fees. I'm very happy with this rate, but lower would be great too.

Just booked a mini-van from Tampa for 9 days for $265 through CarRentalSavers.com. It was from Enterprise.

No I just used www.carrentalsavers.com and check multiple times a day. We are there 2/7 through 2/16/2013 for a full 10 day rental. I would just look multiple times a day. They usually drop within 2 to 3 weeks of departure.

I booked through Enterprise directly and got our fullsize for 220. Good enough for me. On carrentalsavers they do have a code that's bringing it lower. However when I use the code myself on the Enterprise site, it tells me it expires before our trip (a month before actually). So be careful to check the codes carrentalsavers is using on your reservation if you book through them.It's the first time I've ever seen that happen.

ETA) You can check what codes they are using for their search through the "More Options " tab

Well I ended up booking an earlier flight so I had to change my reservation. Back up to 250 and I am actually dropping it off a night earlier

That's ok. It's a good starting point and hopefully I will see some more price drops in the next 6 weeks.
Fox rental car is a bit cheaper but I really don't want to use A) an offsite company and B) one I know nothing about. I'll stick with the ones that are known a little better.

I didn't use any type of code or coupon on carrentalsavers, so I'm good.

Yep. They are all over the place so I would keep watching. My dates are the end of February. They were in the 300 range on Sunday,up to 750 or more yesterday, and back down to the 280 range today for a standard.

I would like to book with them since we've always had such good experiences so I'm going to watch every day and see what happens. Right now Enterprise is still winning.

I'm hoping to have good luck with them. This is my first rent a car. But I like the fact I can check in online and pick my own car. I'm willing to pay a little more for that.
