My United miles were reinstated thanks to dansdeals! I submitted the request through hertz.com main page, under Customer Support look for Frequent Traveler Credit. I put in my united number and email, all other info I matched to the rental receipt info. Got reinstated in less than a week. Thanks all!

Does Anyone have an Hertz / Dollar / Thrifty rental, pre 1/31/2016, to reinstate United miles?

I just learned about this trick, but I do not have any miles due to expire soon that it can save.  I have ~14 rentals over the last year that do not have any miles credited toward them.  Most are Hertz but 2 or 3 are Enterprise.  The one closest to the 1-year cutoff was Sep 10-18 2015.  Do any rentals count so long as they are directly through the Hertz website (not through e.g. Priceline), or does it matter if some are prepaid?  I am willing to sell these off (PM if interested), or if there is no interest then I will call in and get a few extra miles on my own.

Thanks.

I realized after looking through some more info online that my rentals are probably not eligible because I already got Hertz points on these rentals.  Can anyone confirm this is the case?  I would be fine with "unwinding" the Hertz points for airline miles (for me or others) if that is possible, but I do not find any info about that online.  Unless someone says otherwise, I am going to assume that my rentals are not applicable to this approach.

I just learned about this trick, but I do not have any miles due to expire soon that it can save.  I have ~14 rentals over the last year that do not have any miles credited toward them.  Most are Hertz but 2 or 3 are Enterprise.  The one closest to the 1-year cutoff was Sep 10-18 2015.  Do any rentals count so long as they are directly through the Hertz website (not through e.g. Priceline), or does it matter if some are prepaid?  I am willing to sell these off (PM if interested), or if there is no interest then I will call in and get a few extra miles on my own.

Hello.  I am looking for a Hertz rental receipt to reactivate United miles that expired on 9/15/15.  If anyone has a car rental receipt from before that date I would be much obliged!

Thank you!

I could use a Hertz Booking for my United Miles - they expired End of August...I'm totally new to this reactivating-thing, so my Question is: What do i have to do?
