No portal to buy something? Also, there's a thread about some type of transferable miles. That you can do 5 at a time. Which is perfect for these things.

Is that more reliable in some programs than others? is BA from the 'good' ones in that regard?

Should start a new thread and get a Wiki going for that question.

Back on topic: Does anyone have a United-eligible rental receipt from (anytime in) 2016?
(payment offered)

also: any experience on the wait time for a budget credit to credit to AA?

Hertz told me my united millage account number needs to be on the hertz reservation and cannot be added retroactively.

Any data points will help...TIA

I tried getting my southwest points reinstated by crediting a rental that was in the name of a family member, same last name. Avis refused to credit, saying the name on the FF account must match that of the renter. Anyone experienced the same?

I believe Hertz, Thrifty, and Dollar rental receipts that are not connected to a rewards program within 12 months prior to 10/01/2016 should work?
