ISO Hertz (or another compatible receipt) to reinstate AA miles, rental must be posted before 8/25/16. I can trade with some newer Hertz receipts if desired.


TIA!

Has anyone successfully reinstated an AA account with a non-matching last name rental?

Looking for up to 3 Dollar, Hertz, Thrifty rentals before 6/30/17 to reactivate expired United MileagePlus miles.

Does the person whose name is on the rental agreement receive a notification of the credit once I submit a claim to Hertz? Like do they try to match up the name on the rental agreement to the name on the mileageplus account?

Also, if the Hertz rental already earned Gold Rewards, can it still earn the mileage credit? I tried to do something similar with a Hilton stay and they said since I already earned Hilton points that I can't earn any mileage credit.

Thanks!

Just got one. will update with positive feedback when they post.
Never posted. Not the rental, and of course not my lost miles.

Word of warning. Budget rentals won't work for restoring lost miles for other names anymore. I submitted 3 in the last few months. None of them were credited. I tried with AA and Southwest. I did not submit any names. I only gave the FFN. This is the reply I got from Budget after 100 days.

Rental Agreement Number: *******
Southwest Airlines Frequent Flyer Number: *****
 
Hello Mr. ******,
 
Thank you for contacting Budget Customer Care concerning the accrual of Southwest Airline credits for your previous Budget car rental.
 
I apologize for the delay.
 
Southwest Airlines states the frequent flyer number listed does not belong to you. As such the membership number cannot accrue Southwest Airline travel rewards.
 
Please e-mail with your Southwest Airlines membership number or if you would like credits with an alternate travel program please e-mail with the travel program name and your membership number. Please include your case number for all correspondence.
 
Thank you for your assistance.

the big question is: is the crackdown on the rental end, or the airline end? has AA (& SW) started checking names across the board?

Question is if Budget started submitting the names, or if they always did and now Southwest and AA started checking?
