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.

First rental good, Not yet for second or the third one

I am still waiting for the original 500 miles for the third one. The second one has the 500 credited, but not the 5000 miles.

Anyone received the second or the third 5000-mile credit yet?

Not yet. My rental return was on 9/30 so not very long ago, but I am concerned that something got hosed up as 361 goldpoints posted even though i have that box as my earning preference unchecked. Just sent an inquiry to ask Hertz why.

I'm in the same situation. My rental clearly shows the UA CDP and correct PC for the bonus miles, but I had Hertz points post instead. (My rental earlier that week posted the miles fine, although it took about 8 days).

I've sent a message to the Hertz Twitter rep.

Wondering if this a good offer. I am simply needing a car for a quick 3 day PERSONAL trip so can't get reimbursed. The cheapest on kayak is $61 for 3 days (Economy). The UA offer for a full-size is $173. So for 1250+7500=8750 miles (actually with a few more [points] if I use my Chase Sapphire, so let's say 9,000), I will be paying $112 more. That's 1.24 cpm. I guess every mile is valuable but I don't know if I really need 9,000 more miles for $112 more.

Actually for the 5,000 miles, a Mid Size is $104 total for 3 days and that's $43 for around 6,500 miles total so 0.66 cpm and a better offer. Paying $69 more for the 7,500 miles offer is 2.76 cpm for these last 2,500 miles.

.66 cpm means you could effectively buy a one-way USA domestic ticket on UA for $82.50. I'd say there's a pretty good shot that you could get more than $82.50 in value out of that (and obviously bigger balances can equal more outsized value). I jumped in on this promo even though I don't normally collect UA miles, on the grounds that a UA one way domestic ticket for a lot less than what I'd normally pay for a plane ticket works for me, and I had rentals where the cost differential was pretty minimal.

ETA: as a data point, my 9/25 weekend rental has posted as of today (5.5k miles as a UA Dirt).

I've sent a message to the Hertz Twitter rep.
The Twitter rep said that the miles would be sent to UA, but to allow "4 to 6 weeks." Of course, my mistaken Hertz points were deducted immediately. Sigh.

I may have to look for one or two cheap two day rentals in the next 10 days; this is a pretty good way to buy miles.

No such luck for me, the rates in SEA and surrounds are tantamount to buying UA miles at > 2 cpm.

If they extend it again through the end of October, I'd have some travel that would take it down to the point where it would work, possibly... though the current Alamo-WN promo where you get 2400 RR on a two day midsize rental is awfully sweet- that's effectively a $33.60 rebate on rental cars in WN WGA award fares, which I can ALWAYS make use of.

I wonder when such an extension would be announced...I have a reservation out of LAX for a couple days and would greatly enjoy getting 6k-7k miles (although 2.75k ain't too shabby).

Hertz/MP: Earn 5,000 or 7,500 bonus miles per rental

How sweet this offer just became with the 30% bonus on partner transactions!

Post back what you find. I will do the same. Nobody has responded to my inquiry yet.

I believe UA excluded this offer from the 30%. I was hoping for the same.

This promotion is specifically excluded if you read the fine print at the bottom.

Both of mine posted from 9/25 already.

9/25-9/28 @ Santa Clara HLE: 7500 + 500

9/25-9/27 @ SNA: 5000 + 500

When you look @ more info for rental location, it shows if it is a corporate location or not.
