USAA extends a host of discounts to its members. Besides the well-rated financial services, the membership also comes in handy for USAA car rentals.
We priced out car rentals at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) for one week from October 9th until October 16th 2014. To see potential savings, we then applied the USAA discount code.
