Reinstate Expired United Airline Miles

There is a way to reinstate miles that expired with united airlines. It is actually very simple but not so talked about on the World Wide Web. Follow these simple and easy steps to reinstate your miles.


If you credit and Hertz rental to your UA frequent flyer account number you can get a small mileage credit for your rental. ‎Anyone’s rental can be credited to anyone’s Frequent flyer account. The rental company does not verify if your name matches on the rental and the FF account. (Avis stopped working in November of 2014).

How to do it?

  • You need to call Avis with you Renter Agreement Number.
  • Tell them you want them to credit the miles to your United Account # XX123456
  • Wait for the miles to post
  • Call united and have them reinstate the account as the miles posted were based off a date prior to the date that your miles expired.

The best part about this is the names don’t need to match. If your friend/grandmother or neighbor has a rental before your miles expired you are in luck!

Open a United branded credit card. If you hold any credit card that says United on the front, your miles will not expire so long as the account is open. The United MileagePlus® Explorer Card is the entry level card, with no annual fee the first year, and a $95 fee after that.  It also waives the first checked bag fee.

Enroll in e-miles. This is a program that lets you complete surveys and earn a small number of miles. It offers a 100 point bonus the first time you sign up, and this counts to reset the clock of your mileage expiration.

Shop at one of the MileagePlus® online retail partners. If you’re making a purchase online, go to the United Mileage Plus portal first for a link to your favorite store.  You can earn United miles on the purchases. You don’t need a United credit card to do this. A cheap purchase can be an iTunes song for $0.99.

Enroll in and use MileagePlus® Dining. You can earn miles when using any credit card you link to your account and dining at restaurants in the MileagePlus® dining program. These miles post pretty quicklyusually within a month of the dining purchase.

Donate 500 or more miles to charity. An easy way to reset the clock instantly is to donate miles to charity. You can do it for as little as 500 miles, and you’re doing something good in the process. It’s a great option when you’re almost out of time.

American AAdvantage And US Airways Dividend Miles To Merge In April 2015

AA and US merger is coming soon! Your US Airways and American AAdvantage accounts will all be converted into AA miles. If you want to book tickets using your US Airways, now is the time. Bloggers speculate that US Airways miles are more valuable and there will be a downgrade in value once the merger is complete. One reason this may be is the 5,000 point discount if you are  a card holder of a US Airways credit card.

The US AIrways and American Airlines  is approaching

The Dividend Miles e-statement which Dividend Miles sent out to members, seems to say the AAdvantage and Dividend Miles will merge in April 2015:

Next month, we’ll reach the next milestone on our path to integration by bringing Dividend Miles into the American Airlines AAdvantage® program. We’ll transfer your mileage balance and elite-qualifying activity into your new (or existing) AAdvantage account.

That pretty much sums it up. To link your accounts login to American or US AIrways and there will be a pop up asking you to link your accounts.

And here is the step by step guide of the merger:

Becoming one airline – a step-by-step overview


Here are some of our major accomplishments since December 2013:

TwoPreparing to integrate

Request to match your Dividend Miles account with your AAdvantage account (if you have both).

ThreeElite membership year begins

On March 1, 2015, your elite status will be determined based on your elite-qualifying activity in each program individually.

FourFrequent flyer programs combine

In the second quarter of 2015, we’ll integrate our Dividend Miles program into the AAdvantage program with three elite levels.

FiveOne loyalty program, two airlines

For much of 2015, we’ll operate as two separate airlines with two reservation systems and two websites.

SixOne airline, everything on aa.com

Once our reservation systems are combined, you can use aa.com as your one-stop-shop. It will take a few years for us to paint all of our planes, but all our flights will be operated by American.
