Enterprise Holdings - which runs the Enterprise, Alamo and National auto rental groups - tweeted Thursday evening to say that the discount deal it had with the NRA will end on March 26. The NRA "member benefits" page offers savings on a credit card, hearing aids, life insurance, home security systems, vehicle purchases, moving fees, prescription drugs, and branded checkbooks, among other things.
The rental auto company offered NRA members "up to 25 percent off everyday base rates at participating locations worldwide" as well as "additional program benefits". The company has not said more about its decision.
Both companies released their statements repeatedly on Twitter following calls for them to separate from the gun group.

The ad, featured in the Friday edition of the paper, included a comic reordering of the brand name's lettering to spell out "FCK". The restaurant bought a full-page spread in the Sun and Metro newspapers that shows an empty bucket of chicken with crumbs.
"Much like AARP or AAA, the organization promotes its discounts for members as a selling point for why people should join".
The news website ThinkProgress had listed them as companies that support the NRA, noting that First National Bank offered two NRA cards, each with a $40 bonus, and touted it as "enough to reimburse your one-year NRA membership!"
On Thursday, the bank webpage that advertised the NRA card had been disabled. The parent company behind vehicle rental brands like Enterprise previously dropped its discounts.
The NRA has faced increasing backlash following the Florida school shooting, one of the deadliest in the country.
