Thanks. It just dawned on me that I had a Dollar/Hertz rental in June of 2017 and my RR points expired that July. So I'm going to see if crediting Dollar/Hertz will work. I'll report back.
Update: Dollar/Hertz sent me an automated email stating the miles will be posted to my Southwest account. BUT the wording has me worried that it isn't backdated, which is obviously what I need. "There were XXX miles/points/credits processed for Rental Agreement number XXXXXXXXX for the Southwest Airlines program on or around 04/12/2018." Really hoping that means processed on 4/12/18 and not that their reporting the rental date as 4/12/18.
Will update when the points hit Southwest.

My Southwest points were reinstated last night, only took a few days from the notification that Dollar/Hertz had submitted my credit to Southwest.
Really glad this thread exists!

My BA points expired on oct 19, 2017.
Looking to buy a receipt that will reinstate my miles.

Question- officially you can only claim miles that were from the past 6 months-are the airlines strict about that policy usually?
Second- How much time do they give to be able to reinstate miles ? Is there a time period when its too late?
Thnx

true or false?

Tried 3 times to credit my expired AC account thru an Avis receipt
by the 3rd time the rep told me since the location of the pick up and drop off is not an airport they cant give me miles for that rental.

Wondering if anyone can help out as a chesed (good deed). I just tried reviving United miles that expired in Dec. 2017 with a Budget rental from Jul. 2017 and they said that they donít work with United anymore (they did said that they work with AA, Frontier, Air Canada and Spirit to name a few).

1. Can anyone kindly give me a rental that would allow me to revive my account? I can also offer my Budget rental in case anyone could make use of it (i.e. with those airlines that honor it). Many

2. Besides for car rentals and hotels, what other past-activity might allow be to revive my account?

Thanks.

I just lost my miles on United a month ago!  Can anyone help me?
I was watching the calendar and expected an email warning/advisory about the expiration, but nothing arrived.

They expired March 31.
I'm new here, so I don't understand if the forum rules allow me to request help in this way.

I emailed Dan and he sent me a link to this forum topic.
How do I begin the process of rescue?
