I had a hertz rental (intl) submitted almost 3 months ago. Still nothing. I assume I need to call to find out what happened.
Which do I need to call? AA? or hertz?

I just got an email from Hertz saying they will post the miles to united "on or around 05/03/17. Please allow 4-6 weeks from the date processed for the credit to appear on your member statement"

The rental agreement was on 01/01/17 and my account expired 02/01/17 .

Will these miles help me reinstate the account? should I email hertz back trying to get them to post the date of the rental?

TIA

You would credit a past car rental to her airline mileage program account for before the expiration and thereby creating activity in the account and reinstating the miles.

Just called Hertz with a rental that had gotten Gold Points already, but the rep didn't mention it and credited to UA anyway. She said it should show up in the account within 10 business days.

Let's see what'll happen...
