I have a budget rental receipt to use to reinstate my AA miles. However I didn't have a budget account until today.
The rental was in Israel so I got bounced around a few times when calling budget and was told at one point that I can't get reward credit if I didn't have an account at the time of the rental.
Is this true and if so any way to reinstate with my receipt or need to find someone else to help?
Thanks

Sam Finkelstein is the man! Needed a hertz receipt and he processed it same day(mar 15). Backdated United miles posted two days later(17th). Expired miles were restored March 19. Just wow...

 I tried reinstating Southwest points with a Budget rental but it didn't work, I think because the name on the rental was different from the Rapid Rewards account. Instead, Southwest set up a new account to deposit the points in. Has anyone been successful reinstating Southwest points?

I was successful reinstating IHG points with a Budget rental. Got the points back in 3 days.

With Budget, right? Did you try a different car rental company?

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.

So is it not possible to reinstate Southwest anymore given the above? I haven't seen any positive Southwest datapoints since this was posted. Which is a dang shame because I had 100,000 points expire. I know, I know, should have been paying closer attention. I took an award trip using Southwest miles and legit thought that counted as account activity, didn't even dawn on me to read the fine print.

It may still work using car rental receipts other than Avis/Budget.
