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.

Thanks @Sam Finkelstein for a smooth transaction. Took 5 days to reinstate miles!

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 don’t 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?

Anyone know any rental car receipts that work to reinstate  third party AA miles other than Hertz?

TIA!

Hi.  I just called Hertz to change over a rental agreement that had Gold points earned to United.  They told me they couldn't do that.

Is there a trick? or is this correct.  Does the rental have to not earned any miles in the past?

I'd like to re-instate United miles that expired in March.

Thanks

I had 45K miles at United that expired on Dec. 1, 2017 and used a Dollar rental from Nov. 19, 2017 to reinstate activity. My United account just posted 500 miles from Dollar but did not reinstate the 45K miles. So I guess this trick doesn't really work anymore?

Thanks
