Interested in earning American Airlines AAdvantage® without having to pick up a credit card or hop on a flight with American and their partners? How about 5 AAdvantage® miles simply for having a comment approved on our blog?

We want you to share and engage with us. For that, we'll provide you 5 miles towards any active AAdvantage® account you have linked to your AwardWallet user profile. You're limited to earning 5 miles per AwardWallet user per day, so come back and comment each day. We've answered most questions below, so please read on for more details.

Want an Even Easier Way to Earn AAdvantage® Miles?

If you want to earn AAdvantage® miles on autopilot, we recommend opening a Bask Savings Account. Each month, instead of interest you'll earn miles. Every dollar you save earns one mile annually—and that can add up fast for your next big trip.

If you're visiting this page because your miles are set to expire soon, a Bask Savings Account is the perfect way to solve that problem once and for all! Bask Bank awards miles based on your savings balance at the end of each month, so you'll never need to worry about generating AAdvantage® account activity. Check out our full review, or visit Bask's website to learn more.

Frequent Questions on Earning Miles for Comments

Who is eligible? Anyone with a valid AAdvantage® account linked to their AwardWallet account.

Where do I go to earn miles? Visit the comments section on any of our blog posts. (Including this one)

When do I earn the miles? Miles can be earned on a daily basis and will be submitted for deposit each day, however, it may take up to 5 business days for the miles to post to your account. If your miles will expire in less than 5 business days, we've listed some fast ways to generate activity in our post about the AAdvantage® mile expiration policy.

What if I leave multiple comments? We're happy to hear from you multiple times per day. But you'll only earn 5 miles for the first comment. Our day starts at 12:00 a.m. and ends at 11:59 p.m. U.S. Eastern time. We use the time your comment is submitted to the blog (rather than when it is approved and published) to determine whether you will be awarded miles.

How do I make sure my comments are approved? Comments on the AwardWallet Blog are moderated to protect against spam and other nonsense—we read every single one.

Please put a little thought into your comment and make sure it's relevant to the post. We don't usually approve comments that don't add value to the conversation (like “Thanks!” or “Good to know“). Engaging with us, sharing your experiences, and providing constructive feedback/ideas to both AwardWallet and other readers will ensure your comments are approved.

How do I pick an AAdvantage® account to credit the miles? After you leave a comment, you'll receive one of two pop-ups. If you're logged in to AwardWallet in the same browser (different tab perhaps), you'll receive the pop-up immediately below. If you're NOT logged in to your AwardWallet account, you'll receive the message further down.

    This is a great way not to loose all those points – as Europe locks down again, its very difficult to fly right now, let alone accumulate American Airlines points. Thank you AwardWallet!

    I’ve been using your site for months now but lately I was concerned about the possibility of losing my AA miles (more than 50k). When I found this post I couldn’t believe it. Thanks for offering an alternative for all of us during this hard times.

    I love this feature of Award Wallet. AA miles seem to get set to expire more frequently that my other miles. If it weren’t for these tips on easy ways to earn miles I am sure I would be losing some.

    I am glad to have come across this post. I had been scratching my head to find ways to extend my miles given that we haven’t been able to take any flight lately due to Covid. Thank you AwardWallet, you have been a great keeper when it comes to my miles!

    AwardWallet is a wonderful tool that took me far too long to get involved with. Spreadsheets are helpful but do not alert when miles are about to expire. Thank you

  • Avatar

    It’s been difficult to keep up with all the changes to the various loyalty programs lately due to COVID.
    It’s nice to see things in one place – including new expiry dates of programs and vouchers. As I haven’t done a lot of travel lately, I don’t check all my programs as frequently as I used to.
    It’s important to keep on top of these things as it would get expensive to make a mistake and miss an expiry date.

    I didn’t realize that I hadn’t touched my AA miles in so long and now they are about to expire.

    Thank you for providing this service. I had received the email reminder regarding my soon-to-expire AA miles, and had been thinking of what to buy to maintain them while sticking to a budget (given the state of the world and all). I then recalled this option and wondered if it was still available. Thankfully, it was! Here’s to better travel in 2021.

    This is fantastic, just discovered that we can extend our AA miles by posting a comment here. Gone are the days of purchasing magazine subscriptions we don’t want in order to extend AA miles.

    My question is, how long does it take to post the miles? Thanks!

  • Avatar

    It’s a bummer that AA’s mileage expiration program is chugging along. I really appreciate the 5 point engagement that this blog is doing! Pretty cool for the community. Besides this strategy for adding AA points, I like the dining option where you can use your card to double dip on normal credit card rewards and AA rewards through the dining awards program.

  • Avatar

    Is there a software that could automatically charge $1 or a small amount to an AA-affiliated card once the expiration approaches? Something of a fail-safe software to prevent expiration.

  • Avatar

    Thanks for this tip! Seriously AW is the best tool out there and the info that you guys provide really helps me manage all my points and keep track of things such as expiration. This is the 2nd time it has notified me of an expiration with good advance notice for me to do something about it. Flying Blue miles were set to expire end of 2019 and luckily I charged a DL flight to Flying Blue in time to keep points active.

    Thx again!!

    In a normal year AW helps keep track of all the points we earn, I’d be lost without it. Just credit card spend related points this year for me, no flights or hotel stays yet – so great to have a bonus in keeping miles from expiring.

    Hello from Brazil!! It’s really hard here to use Credit card or bank points in foreign Airlines; is there any tool – app or website – that compares flights fares in points? Is there any way – app or website – of exchanging points from different companies in different countries?

    I started using AwardWallet last year.
    Initially, only to keep my points organized in one place. Then the travel ban hit in Canada and even though my travel is non-essential, I definitely didn’t want to have to lose all the points I had because I was unable to travel outside the country and didn’t have a flight company credit card to help me maintain my air miles. Thank you so much AwardWallet, for existing, during these trying times!

    Longtime user of AwardWallet, the expiration warning is one of the most useful features for someone who manages all of the points programs for the household.

    I did quite a bit of travel over the years – American Airlines in particular – and things have been going well. Due to COVID-19, I have stopped all travel – like most of us. As a result, I have had zero activity on my AwardMiles accounts this year, and things are starting to expire. To be honest, I would have thought the Airlines would have made an exception – but such is life.

    Thanks for providing a method by which we can show/have activity on our account to maintain those hard-earned miles.

    I really appreciate AwardWallet sending reminder emails when points are about to expire. It’s a bit disappointing that some Airlines are starting to resume the expiration of points even though we are still very much in the middle of a pandemic. As someone who has a health condition, I am still not comfortable flying and it would be a shame to lose all of my American Airlines frequently flier points. I understand that post-COVID, the airlines are leaning towards more flexible change policies (long term) and I think this is great when the rest of the travel industry (hotels and rental car companies) have found a way to do this.

    Very useful information and I always appreciate AwardWallet’s keeping me updated on balances and upcoming expirations.

    It seems that AA is among the last of the major airlines to hold on to expiration dates for miles. Between my frequent flyer accounts, all these no longer have expiration dates: Delta, United, JetBlue, Southwest. I suppose these folks understand that customers are pretty attached to their mile accruals, and the risk of pissing us off is not worth the potential cost savings.

    I probably don’t take advantage of AwardWallet enough but what I have used is super helpful and convenient; namely it’s one stop shop for all my reward accounts. The mileage expiration notification is also useful since I wouldn’t have realized my AA miles are expiring soon. In exploring my options for renewing my AA miles (I was sure I would have to subscribe to a magazine I would never read), I was excited to learn about the five mile bonus AwardWallet offers. Thank you for making this easy on a new mom. Now, if someone can explain to me why AA hasn’t gotten on the miles don’t expire bandwagon, I will be an even happier camper.

    You’re such a life saver, I have AAmiles that is about to expire in 2 months. I was super confused what should I do with the miles, since this whole pandemic and quarantine situations make it impossible to travel. I don’t think I can redeem a ticket anytime soon. So your article really brightens my day, just as simple as commenting, I can gain miles and expand the expiration dates? Sure, I would do anything to save my miles.
    Thank you for always helping me with your awesome tips and tricks. I’ve been using you service for quite some time now, and your apps never fails me. It is user friendly and super simple. Thank you AwardWalllet, I will recommend you to more of my friends and let them know, how awesome you are.

    This policy of adding 5 AAdvantage miles for leaving a comment is great. I know that they are pausing expiration until december 30th but I’m worried I’ll be too busy then and forget to extend my soon to be expiring account…

    This service is terrific especially right now during covid. Without being able to travel we risk our hard earned miles expiring. Thanks award wallet for helping us maintain our miles, and keep everything in one easy to find place! I especially appreciate the miles expiry line in the account page – makes it easy to keep track before it’s too late and they’re gone.

    Another method I used recently to avoid expiration was to link my account (Hilton HHonors in this case) to my Amazon account. Then I was able to use as little as 1000 points for cash value against any purchase. Painless and who can’t use something from Amazon?

    Does anyone know what other mileage programs partner with Amazon?

    Thanks for providing an easy way to renew AA miles. My best redeemption of AA miles was JFK-AUH-DEL in F on an A-380 for 110K AA miles

    That’s very helpful! I was still hoping AA would extend the expiration of our miles due to current situation but won’t take chance anymore.

  • Avatar

    My AA miles are set to expire in October (even though I had seen postings around the web of mile expiration being deferred through the end of 2020), so I’m playing it safe and generating some earning activity.

    In addition to the miles-for-comments offer here, I just signed up for a Bask account. The best savings account interest rates these days are ~0.7%, so the effective earnings rate at Bask really isn’t that bad!

    Pro tip: find a referral link to use when you sign up to get an extra 5000 bonus mile offer (without being referred, you can only earn 1000 bonus miles at signup). Bask’s bonus mile offers earlier this year were much better based on blog posts I’ve seen, but given the circumstances with COVID I’ll take what I can get. 🙂

    Thanks!

    This is an awesome tool! I only fly with American every so often since other airlines are more convenient for the routes I fly most frequently, and with the current travel situation I haven’t been doing any leisure travel to other locations that AA services. I know they’ve put expirations on hold until December 1, but this will give me a couple months cushion in case they don’t renew that again.

    Will have to check out the Bask Savings Account option but for now hoping that this comment will get me through infrequent travel during these COVID times. Random thought: I feel like airlines should go back to waiving all baggage fees for the first 2 checked bags since planes are flying with less passengers and therefore less weight these days. Anyone else feel that way, or am I missing something?

As Canadians, and other non U.S. residents, we do not qualify to take part in the e shopping program, the dining program and the survey program… all ways that we could have continued to grow our AAdvantage points. Sure wish these airlines would open up the shopping, dining and survey programs to ALL members of their AAdvantage club. Otherwise, it is very difficult to find a way of adding points to our account a little at a time. I appreciate the time members take in posting their comments.

    I just tried to the Chrome extension for AwardWallet, and I must say it works like a charm to get the mileage for me BA accounts – quite nifty! However I am not sure why I can no longer get the expiration date for those (and a few others) without ‘upgrading’ … or rather, what the logic is when AwardWallet wants to me upgrade and when I can still get the expiration date without upgrading. Given that I track for many family members this may not be effective for me in the long run as I hoped … tbd.

    Hi everybody, I was trying to extend my AA miles which are about to expire. I wonder if this comment is enough. I also would like to know if anyone knows of a way of merging Iberia´s avios and AA miles since both belong to One world alliance.

    This is by far the easiest way to earn free mile. I’m very grateful for this generous offer from AwardWallet. Let’s hope this will extend my miles in time since my expiration date is less than 2 weeks from now.

    I’ve been an awardwallet subscriber for years and was researching ways that I could extend my American Airlines miles. AwardWallet is really useful in helping manage all of my loyalty programs and reward points. Am lucky to find that simply making a comment here could keep my American Airline miles from expiring. That’s just another perk of being an AwardWallet user I guess. Thanks for the service and tool.

    Although I have been using AwardWallet for years, I am still impressed how it saves me from losing points.

    I have roughly 75k AA miles in my account and a few weeks ago I received an automated email from AwardWallet alerting me that my points were set to expire in August. “That can’t be right,” I thought since I have the Barclays AAviator Credit Card. I (wrongly) assumed that holding that card (and paying its annual fee) would exempt me from miles expiration in the same way holding the Chase United Explorer card does for my MileagePlus account. If not for AwardWallet, i would not have checked and would have lost 75k points!

    Perhaps the Award Wallet blog could make a post which outlines the airline and hotel credit cards which do and do not protect miles/points from expiration? That way, others would not make the same false assumptions as I did!

    Made a comment the other day & wasn’t sure it was actually approved to earn AA miles. Was logged into Award Wallet account, clicked on blog link at top of account page, searched for this blog, made comment, clicked “post comment,” no box appeared for me to approve AA account to which miles would be deposited and then screen changed all of a sudden to show my comment with a notation above it that it was awaiting moderation. When I checked this comment page in the blog the next day, the comment was there without the notation about moderation above it. When a comment is entered as one on this blog page, does that mean it has been approved and WILL earn 5 AA miles? I’ve read all the info. in the Details/FAQ section below this commenting box, and there isn’t anything specifically stating how to interpret when you have actually earned the miles. Maybe you could set up something whereby Award Wallet sends an e-mail confirming that the miles have been earned from making a comment so that members know for sure. It would also be helpful to have such a notification to prove to AA that you had activity on a particular date so that the expiration date of miles can be reset. Hope this comment will be approved and that I will receive the AA miles for both comments. Thanks for your consideration.

    • Avatar

      Unfortunately, we do not send notifications when your comment is approved. Miles will post within 5 business days of your comment being approved. I see a pending deposit for you, so you should get your miles soon.

    Thanks for this quick and easy way to keep my AA points! I was worried because I didn’t want to pay to transfer my points to someone else or open the bank account (for some reason, you’re taxed at .42 cents per mile on all points earned through bank accounts…. what!?) and I definitely won’t be traveling soon.

    Great tips as I’m coming up on my expiration. Downloaded the app and stoked to have everything in one place!

  • Avatar

    Used this way to earn AA miles once before, but couldn’t remember how to access the “comment” area. Just wanted to say that the 5 miles earned before posted to my AA account faster than Award Wallet’s expectations, so that was a good thing! Hope the same happens this time, cuz I’m really cutting it close to the extended expiration date AA gave for everyone’s miles due to Covid. As an aside, it is somewhat unclear whether AA truly counts the date on which miles are earned as the date on which activity takes place for an account, or whether activity is counted only as of the date on which their system posts earnings. Also, the interpretation of what “expiration date” means isn’t specifically delineated by a reference to an exact time of day in a particular time zone. I’m seeing 3 different dates for when my miles expire, which I think is due to this lack of precision. If Award Wallet can shed any light on this, I’d really appreciate it. Thanks for being there!

    Huge thanks to AwardWallet for developing this extremely useful tool. I view this to be like the Mint Intuit product for all my travel loyalty rewards! It’s so helpful to be able to compare and track all my travel loyalty products side by side. If AwardWallet didn’t send me notices of miles expiring, with helpful tips on how to keep those miles, I would have lost so much value by now. Thank you, thank you.

    This is a lifesaver. Or rather a miles saver.
    I neglected to keep track of my miles and suddenly realized they were expiring soon. Opened a reward credit card just to get an extension (and a few bonus miles) but it turns out the miles won’t post until the statement closes THREE DAYS AFTER my miles expire. Frustrating.
    So I went to the TravelMiles101 Facebook group and found a comment from a member about your site. I never knew this site!
    I am very excited I found it and look forward to increasing my knowledge here.
    Thank you,

    The airlines have, perhaps intentionally, made such a jumble of rules and systems that keeping your miles from expiring on more than one or two airlines was unworkable… until AwardWallet came to save the day! And now, not only are you alerting me that my American miles are expiring, you are even happy so slide me a few of your own miles just for saying hi! I feel very pampered. This is worth the membership.

      Did you select your AA account while posting the comment? Unfortunately, our automated system doesn’t allow for us to retroactively post miles. Hundreds of blog readers receive miles each week without issue. We recommend you leaving another comment, and this time please make sure you specify that you want miles deposited to a certain account.

        Hi Irene,
        I just posted again and at the end it asked if I would like miles applied to a certain account, and I ensured I was logged in to AwardWallet as well as had AA selected. Do you know how long it takes for the 5 miles to be posted? Thanks again.

        Irene, can you please clarify what you mean when you say you must select your AA account while posting the comment? If I only have one award account (my AA account) currently linked to AwardWallet do mileage credits for posting comments on the blog not automatically get credited to such account? Thanks!

        • Avatar

          No, you should select your AA account. I suppose this information could be found above in this post.

      Unfortunately, only US citizens and legal residents are eligible at this time: “Account Qualifications – In order to be eligible for a Bask Savings Account you must, at a minimum, be 18 years of age, be a US citizen or legal resident, have a valid US Tax Payer Identification Number, and have a valid US address.”

    This is the most amazing tool that actually exists in the airlines miles world to help you extend expiring miles. Specially this year that has been impossible to fly, and in my country (Argentina) I think it would still be difficult for a long time due to COVID19.

  • Avatar

    I think American is the last points program to have miles expire with inactivity, so this is super-helpful. But it’s a pretty bad policy during COVID19. I’ve stopped flying altogether.

    What I’m surprised is that we haven’t seen safe flight options — where there are sufficient protections to keep us safe, and perhaps insurance if those protections turn out to be inadequate. I’d like to keep flying, and international airlines do things like foggers. I’d gladly pay extra to have plexiglass between rows (and ideally some kind of barrier to the aisle), a row to myself (optionally with travel companion), and guarantees that the seat was properly disinfected, that everyone has an N95 facemask, and so on.

It is extremely useful to have a tool that facilitates both our performance and, not less important, that collaborates with keeping alive the hope of touring the world again for all the passionate people who use time and money in pursuit of this constant conquest.

    Thanks to Award Wallet I was notified that my AAdvantage points were about to expire. With the reduction in travel due to the virus, I was concerned about how I could update my account so that my miles would not expire. After some searching on how to avoid the expiration of the miles I discovered the option of posting a comment to receive 5 free miles. This was extremely helpful to me. I have had an Award Wallet account for some time and only ever included my AAdvantage account, but I will update my profile to include all my travel accounts.

    It’s really amazing how sites like AwardWallet exists and help people to keep their miles from expiring. It’s truly refreshing to see something this positive and kind during this pandemic, so keep up the good work!

    However, I’m a little disappointed with American Airlines how short their extension period really is. While my country is currently in a process of getting things back to normal and easing it’s travel restrictions, I don’t really see myself taking any flights within the next 4 months since my usual travel destinations are still under a strict lockdown and require at least two weeks of self-quarantine. Perhaps AA could have just extended everyone’s miles to early 2021 like many other airlines did in order to make sure their loyal customers keep supporting AA in the future too.

    Just joined AwardWallet on a tip from a friend. I was looking for a way to track my loyalty program memberships, expirations, travel itineraries and the like with one simple tool rather than having separate Outlook calendar notes all over and trying to make sure nothing falls through the cracks! Looking forward to populating my full profile and making use of all AwardWallet has to offer. Thanks!!

    AwardWallet is an invaluable tool for tracking award points/miles across my numerous accounts — credit cards, airlines, hotels, and rental car companies — THANK YOU!!

    Thank you.

    What a great and convenient way to save my expiring American airlines miles! When times are tough financially it’s nice to know that AwardWallet is helping. Thank you!

    Glad I’m subscribed to Awardwallet! My a advantage miles were due to expire and thanks to awardwallet for notify me, all is well!

    Hi, points expiring in August so just wanted to keep them alive. Thank you.

    While Im here, quick question, is it likely that there is going to be a devaluation on AA points and other airlines over the next year? I get the impression hotels are not struggling as badly but wondering if they will use Covid as an excuse to devalue too?

    This is an excellent opportunity to keep the activity of the miles in Covid days.
    Thank you AwardWallet!!!

    These are great tips for people looking to extend their AA miles especially at a time when travel is so limited due to restrictions and budgets will be tight coming out of this.

    Thanks AwardWallet!

    My AA miles will be expired in two months and it is helpful to extend it with just a comment.

    I commented on this blog on May 9th and selected my AA account for the 5 miles, but haven’t received it yet after 12 days. Not sure what happened. My miles expire in a month, so would like to get this deposit to extend the expiration

    Trying to get all my accounts on Award Wallet updated, but I am having trouble as AW is telling me the password is incorrect for my TAP miles and more account. I updated the password on TAP and signed in to be sure everything was good. It still does not work. Why might my password not work after its been verified? Also, I could use 5 AAdvantage Miles to keep my miles active!

  • Avatar

    This is great. I have tried using their shopping portal but it’s a hit and miss and I don’t want to just randomly order things just to get miles credited to my account. Thank you for providing this option to extend AA miles for commenting.

  • Avatar

    Commenting to extend expiration of my daughter’s miles. But also wondering when we’ll actually travel again. Really miss planning (yeah, I actually enjoy the planning part!) and going on vacations. So many places on our to-visit list. Hoping to get back to some kind of travel normal soon. In the meantime, everyone take care and stay safe.

    Had some difficulty getting Hilton website added to awardwallet – was forcing me to download a chrome extension that warned that it could read all my web sites data!
    Please make it easier to load hilton.

    Like the notifications of when points are expiring.

    • Avatar

      Basically the extension is needed to update some types of accounts that we cant update for you from our servers due to technical reasons. It is also used to auto-log you into your accounts when you click the program name in the list of accounts. We don’t use it to read all your web pages information and all the pages in your history, it just needed for some loyalty programs due to technical reasons. Please send such questions via our contact us page:

    Doesn’t look like this is working for me for the past couple of days. I just noticed.

    • Avatar

      Please note that it takes up to 5 business days to get the miles if your comment does get approved and we also have a limit of 5 miles per day. Typically, comments like “Thanks for the heads up”, “Great deal”, “Cool” go to spam automatically (not always though as we tweak the system) because they clutter the discussion without adding value.

    I was really pleasantly surprised to learn about this feature of getting 5 points for commenting! I like getting extra points but am also appreciative that it’s a way to keep current points from expiring. Thank you very much!

    This is awesome. Thank you for helping me from miles being expired. It seems like there is promotion going on for sign up bonus for AAdvantage Citi credit card.

    This is an amazing tool. I was forced to donate 1000 miles about three years ago, as I had made the (rookie) mistake of buying a stack of miles directly from AA during a promotion, well before I learned about the value of miles/points, etc in a holistic sense. Leveraging a few keystrokes for free points preservation is a win-win. I heard about AwardWallet from ThePointsGuy, and this has not disappointed in consolidating all of the award programs I’ve picked up over the years…with this blog commenting being icing on the cake. Thanks for providing this service for travelers, as these few miles go a long way to preserving miles we’ve accumulated over the years until we have a chance to really use them again (or earn them in other ways over the long-term)!

    Unfortunately my AA miles expire soon like many others on here. And with the stay at home order still in place, I’m unable to use my miles. I don’t understand why they just don’t remove the expiration date like Delta and JetBlue have done. Thankfully last time I was able to extend my expiration dates by commenting here and it helped me to keep the miles for a hotel stay later on. I appreciate you guys keeping this great program in place so we don’t lose our hard earned mileage!

    What a great advantage. If I am understanding this correctly, I can keep my Mile from expiring just by adding miles? And commenting on blog posts will gain 5 miles. Thanks for the perk. My miles do not expire for a while, but I am always looking for tips.

    I love using Award Wallet to track point activity and the ability to pick up a few AA miles and reset the clock is awesome! I use a spreadsheet also, but getting an email reminder makes sure that I don’t lose track of expiration dates and lose miles is very helpful.

    Rachel Haron says:

    When United and Delta got so ahead of the curve by publishing their mile extension I assumed that AA would follow suit soon after. The fact that they didn’t will end up hurting their relationship with their customers.

    The fact that AA mile expiration aren’t extended further is a shame. AA needs to realize that we are their best customers and it is in their interest to keep us happy.

    AwardWallet has been one of the few services that i am ready to spend on due to the sheer value added by tracking hundreds of loyalty programs. I have gained enormously by tracking expiry of points, change of points balances, etc.
    I think AwardWallet team should consider integrating a tool to search award space within this application. That will make it a one stop shop for everything related to miles. I have used expertflyer in the past for searching awards. I’d be happy to pay a few dollars more to have the same functionality in AwardWallet.
    Keep up the good work!

    There are several great things about this service —
    – The ability to track and see all your accounts in a single place
    – The fact that you get email warnings about account and point/miles expirations . This is especially important if you also manage the accounts of your family members.
    – And… the fact that you can stop this expiration for AA accounts by interacting with AwardWallet and earning 5 miles per interaction. That, my friends, is priceless!

    It would be more of a good faith effort during these times of no travel in a pandemic and careful spending in an upended economy if American Advantage would extend miles expiration dates out six months or more.

  • Avatar
    Debra McKeown says:

    While I’m grateful to Award Wallet for alerting me of two of our family member’s American Airlines points about to expire, it would be best if the Airlines extended the expiration date out six months to a year. So many people won’t catch it or be able to do anything about it. It seems like a good faith effort to all who have been showing loyalty to their rewards program.
