Miles Expiring? Pick Up A Magazine Or Newspaper Subscription!

10

Not all of the airlines below require activty to keep your miles alive.  See this post for mileage expiration policies. 

Often times redeeming miles is safer than getting miles for doing an action, as you don’t always get miles in time to keep your miles active.

You can actually get some pretty sweet deals, like The Economist for 3,200 miles for a subscription that usually costs about $100.  Delta miles don’t require activity, but still 3,200 Delta miles for The Economist isn’t bad at all!

Or you can just get a cheap magazine for 300 miles to keep your account active.

Funny timing Dan, I just renewed my Economist subscription yesterday with 3,200 SkyPesos!

@HoKo:
Probably one of the best values for Delta miles out there!

The way to keep my United from from expriring is I make an Award reservations from JFK to BKK then the reservations expires by default by not booking the award and the Miles extend for another year and half.

I received an email that my us airways miled expired. had no idea that I had 65000 miles. Any idea how to get it back?

@molly:
Did you (or a friend) rent a car or stay at a hotel in the past year before the miles expired?

If yes you should be able to get miles for that which will reactivate your entire account.
