NEW JERSEY RETIREE WINS ONE OF THREE LINCOLN MARK VIII GRAND PRIZES THROUGH BUDGET RENT A CAR'S 'SMART MONEY' PROMOTION

 Seven More Grand Prizes Available Through June 30
 LISLE, Ill., April 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Two weeks into its new "Smart


Money Scratch & Win/Save & Earn" sweepstakes, Budget Rent a Car is pleased to announce three of ten possible Smart Money grand prize winners who will enjoy the use of a Budget Lincoln Mark VIII for one full year.
 As a participant in the "Smart Money Scratch & Win" sweepstakes, June Czyz of Colts Neck, NJ, picked up a Smart Money Certificate when renting a car last Tuesday from the Red Bank, NJ, Budget location. While waiting for her rental agreement, she scratched off the instant-win spot to reveal her grand prize award.
 Effective April 1 through June 30 at participating Budget locations nationwide, the Smart Money sweepstakes offers leisure and business travelers many valuable prizes and savings, including: seven more grand prizes of the use of a Lincoln Mark VIII for a year, 10,000 first-place $50 U.S. savings bonds, 30,000 free rental days and 285,000 $20 weekly rental discounts.
 "My husband and I were so excited when we won the Lincoln," said Ms. Czyz. "Whenever we take trips of 50 miles or more, which is about once a month, 'we go Budget.' In our new car, we'll be visiting family and friends in New Hampshire, Texas and Pennsylvania. The best part about traveling by car is that you can set your own pace, stop when you want to, and really enjoy the countryside."
 Budget's second grand prize winner, Sam Dalley of Kingwood, Texas, was equally excited about his Smart Money prize. Mr. Dalley, who owns a local retail mobile home business, said: "I used to travel quite a bit on business and rented from Budget three-to-five times a week. So when I flew to San Antonio this week for a golf tournament, I naturally went back to Budget -- they always made me feel glad that I did business with them. With the prize of a Lincoln Mark VIII, Budget made me a very happy customer this week."
 The third grand prize went to Jennifer LaMadrid, of Kauai, Hawaii, who opted for a Smart Money cash award of $5,000. A first-time Budget customer, Ms. LaMadrid describes her experience: "We rented a car to go truck shopping on Oahu. The Budget salesperson was so friendly and responsive that we signed up for the frequent renter program right away, and didn't even play the Smart Money game until we were back at our hotel. We could hardly believe that we won, but the cash award will certainly come in handy for the truck we hope to buy."
 Budget Rent a Car is the world's third largest car and truck rental system, with more than 3,200 corporate and license-owned locations, including nearly 825 airports, in over 115 countries and territories.
