Editor's note: The discount code above has been posted elsewhere, with very similar wording, under more than one name.

You may do better with the SuperShuttle discount codes listed at RetailMeNot. There are several listed with higher discounts and success rates.

RetailMeNot lists the same 5% code (which I ended up using) as I could not get the larger discount codes to be accepted on Super-shuttles web. At least I got the extra miles credit from US Airways. Thank you for the info.
