United Ending Point Expirations for Mileage Plus

United Mileage Plus members no longer have to worry about their frequent flyer points expiring.

The change, announced by the carrier Wednesday, takes effect immediately. Previously, Mileage Plus points expired if an account was inactive for 18 months.

“We want to demonstrate to our members that we are committing to them for the long-haul and giving customers a lifetime to use miles is an exceptionally meaningful benefit,” Luc Bondar, United’s vice president of loyalty, said in a prepared remark.

Among U.S. carriers, United joins Delta and JetBlue, which also have no expiration for loyalty program points.
