Screenshot of the actual email (less personally identifying information and the T&C's at the end of the email) can be found HERE.

Bonus Posting (Premier Miles) within 7-8 days of the trip.
Additional Miles Posting within xx-xx days of the trip.

Retroactive mileage credit:

There have been many data points of car reservations made through United.com not properly crediting to the member's MP account. To obtain retroactive credit follow the link on the Hertz.com homepage under Customer Support named "Frequent Traveler Credit". Input your appropriate account and reservation details and you'll receive a response back from Hertz within 3-5 business days. Allow at least seven days after rental return before requesting the credit. This works for obtaining both the base mile credit and whatever bonus your status level entitles you to, e.g. GS/1K bonus, etc.

Any confirmation about using it without receiving the email?
My 7,500 bonus miles (+ my 500 base miles) were posted to my account yesterday for my first rental. I did not receive the email, just used the CDP (62455) and PC (306832) posted here when I made my reservation.

I also just tried to use the CDP and PC for a reservation I need for early October (2-6) and the PC still worked! However, it looks like it must cut off in the middle of October because I got an error message for my October 19th reservation.

For folks who use hertz, they also have a triple points promo going on as well if you register. My company makes me use their own codes which means I wouldn't get this, but I can get the triple points which isn't too shabby.

Under 75 miles, and you need to explicitly tell them you filled up the car or they assume you didn't, even if the fuel gauge shows F. Shady I know but that's the assumption they make. Shouldn't be hard to have them remove it with a phone call?

I've used the current promo codes for the 1K bonus that's been around the last few months on Hertz's site and the bonus was speedily awarded. So I am thinking this will be similar.

I was able to put in the CDP and PC on the regular Hertz site



Here you go:



My question is this: I have a two-day rental booked 9pm to 9pm, but I know I will be needing to bring the car back at more like 5pm. I wonder if it will still count for the 5K promo?
It will not unless the dates show more than 2 days. I got nailed like this before too. It needs to be over 48 hours for the computer to pick it up. I was able to call into customer service and have them fix it, but I had to call twice as the first person refused, even though I was charged for 2 days.

Quick question, as I normally book with National, not Hertz... to earn the miles from this promotion, do I need to "Decline" the Gold Plus Rewards Points in my profile?

checking the search engine seems to indicate that Oct 15 is the last day one can begin their rental while the PC is still valid

6 to 8 weeks for the bonus miles to be posted??

I used the CDP and PC for my rental. The extra bonus miles have been posted to my account except the usual 750 Platinum bonus. I wrote to Mileageplus, and this was the response I got, "The bonus miles will post to your account six to eight weeks after the qualifying car rental."

6 to 8 weeks? That is ridiculous.

Returned my car on Monday, 0 points posted so far.

Which code did you use? The 2 day (5,000) or the 3 day (7,500)?

3. Rented a full.

EDIT: POSTED Today. (7500 - not the UA smaller amount). Thanks to FT for making me aware of this deal.

Took 5 days for my offer to post, but the 8,000 miles is worth the wait! The codes upped my labor day weekend rate about $3 a day, but thats a no-brainer to me.

Fortunately I have it in writing via a Direct Message from the Hertz Twitter rep, so while I may have to fight it, I'm hoping it will be easy to fix.

My 5k (bonus) + 500 (for being a Premier Dirt) showed up. I returned the car at 45 hours.

So any updates yet on whether you can do this multiple times? I may rent again next weekend.

PC 305023 promo extended

not sure if this has been previously mentioned or not, but the other low miles promo (PC # 305023, 1500 miles) has been extended from end-of-Oct till Dec 31st.

* officially till 12/31 but some dates in early Jan'16 are still returning proper results.

I'm interested in this as well, since I have multiple reservations in the next 2 weeks.
