I have United miles that expired in Jan of this year. It seems like using a Hertz rental would only work if the pickup and drop-off where on Jan 1st. Anyone know if Thrifty or Dollar is more lenient?

I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Just go on their website, click on "AA advantage", and then redeem miles
Iím having trouble finding where to redeem my United miles for a subscription on AA.con. Can someone please guide me? (If possible using the mobile site otherwise I can do Desktop as well.) Thanks!

i know this is not the right trade but the guy's here should be familiar with this. my united acct. has recently expired, i have gold points from hertz what i just  transferred over to my united acct. i'm wondering if this is what i was supposed to do?! since they didn't mention anything from a specific rental from where the points came from, or maybe earning airline miles is something different then points?

The point of crediting a rental is that it backdates the activity to the date of the rental, thereby extending the 18 months since last activity expiration date. I don't see why transferring Hertz points would have that same effect.

Here's the basic jist.

You need a rental that hasn't been credited to anything yet. Not to Hertz points, airline points, or anything else. It also needs to predate the expiration of the United miles.

So let's say that your United miles expired December 1st. You need a rental with an end date of 11/30 or earlier to credit to your United account now.

AFAIK i'm getting credited with points automatically with every rental, so what could i do now? 2) whats definition of "retro" credit card?
