Mileage Expiration Policies Of US Airlines Have Changed. Here’s The Current List

It’s hard enough to earn airline miles so letting those miles expire can be a painful experience, depending on how many miles you have in your account. I was willing to let some of my Frontier Miles expire until someone told me it was possible to donate them to a charity. While I’m all for donating miles, I’d also like to keep them active and use them to pay for future travel.

Fortunately, two airlines have recently changed their mileage expiration policies so I thought it might be a good idea to go over how long you have until your miles expire for the major US airlines.

Sign Your Enemies Up For This Offer: Bad Wines And Frontier Miles

Sharon and I are not wine snobs. We do, however, enjoy a nice glass of wine with dinner. We’ve visited wineries in Napa, Sonoma, Willamette, OR and even in Tasmania during our Adventures by Disney trip to Australia. Our journeys have also brought us to winemaking facilities in Hawaii, Texas and Florida that eventually led me to develop the mantra of “Just because you can grow grapes and make wine, doesn’t mean you should.”

That’s the feeling I had when this offer hit my email box today:

I Almost Got Bonvoyed By Frontier Airlines

One important lesson to learn about miles and points is to always read through your junk mail, both the physical and electronic kind. You never know when there will be a targeted offer for extra miles or a special offer. One of these mailers to my business was how I was able to get a second sign up bonus for the Delta American Express Business Gold card even though you’re supposedly only allowed one bonus per lifetime per card.

When I was going through my email the other day, I was quite surprised to see a sidebar on my Frontier Airlines email saying I could earn Frontier Miles for my next Marriott stay. OK, they had my interest.

I Donated My Expiring Frontier Miles To Charity. Frontier Didn’t Make It Easy To Know How To Do That, So Here’s How

Earlier this week, I wrote about how I was letting some of my frequent flyer miles expire because I didn’t have any use for them and it wasn’t worthwhile to keep them active. After reading the article, Shawn B. commented on our Facebook page.

Can you donate/transfer em?

I can’t believe I didn’t think of that. I mean, I had even written an entire article about how you can donate miles and points to help out after natural disasters. It’s that charities just don’t need donations during emergencies, they need them all the time. So why not donate my expiring miles to a charity?

I don’t put all the blame on myself because NOWHERE ON FRONTIER’S WEBSITE DOES IT MENTION YOU CAN DONATE YOUR MILES!!!!! Not cool, Frontier. Not cool at all.

Frontier Airlines Elite 20K Status After Two Flights

Check your email because today Sharon and I both received offers to earn Frontier Elite 20K status after taking two round trip flights. Considering that you’d usually need to fly 20,000 miles on Frontier (or spend $20,000 on the Frontier Credit Card) to achieve this status, it’s a pretty good deal.  This may be a targeted offer because the emails contained a link specific to our Frontier Miles accounts.

(Update August 7, 2018. the offer is now available to everyone at THIS LINK.)

Here are the details of the offer: Continue reading “Frontier Airlines Elite 20K Status After Two Flights”
