    Wife had an Avis rental 10 days ago. I had it set up to be credited to Club Carlson (they had some promo, plus wanted to keep her account alive). When I checked yesterday, the points hadn't posted yet, so I contacted Avis via their website. Their reply:

    Thank you for contacting the E-mail Customer Service team with your
    frequent flyer inquiry.

    Your rental does qualify to receive Club Carlson Gold Passport Frequent
    Flyer points. As you requested, we have added the following points to
    your account in conjunction with your rental. These points will appear
    on a future statement. Please allow up to 60 - 90 days to show on your
    account.

    What's your experience with Avis partner points -- does it really take 60-90 days for them to post?

    Did you mean Avis? I recall you were planning to stay away from them. ;)
    Sometimes i pick Avis based on price and the car models I like. I don't recall being successful in getting any points from them. When i had to complain about something, they just sent me $25 cert's.

    Had an Avis rental in OGG this spring, with the 9,000 CC points, and it posted within a couple of weeks.
    What about booking a cash+ points or points-only reservation somewhere, and having the points deducted? That would be activity. Even if you later have to cancel, I'll bet (someone correct me if I'm wrong, please) that would count as activity.

    Yes, sorry, Avis.

    (Though I am also chasing after miles from Hertz from my last rental with them)

    Yup, was thinking about that, it should count as activity.
