United Airlines Announces MileagePlus Miles Never Expire

Starting immediately, United Airlines has declared that MileagePlus miles will now never expire. This gives members a lifetime to use miles on flights, hotels, and experiences. United is making strides to help improve its already award-winning MileagePlus program, making it easier for customers to use and collect miles. These new rewards include: a new partnership with CLEAR that includes free, or discounted membership for U.S. based MileagePlus members; Most low-priced economy award availability of any global U.S. airline; every day opportunities to use miles as low as 1,000 for eGift cards; and award travel to more destinations than any other U.S. airline – more than 1,300 with Star Alliance. Luc Bondar, Vice President of Loyalty and President of MileagePlus at United, said “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… Our MileagePlus program provides customers more ways to earn and use miles than any other U.S. airline. More customers used miles to book award trips in 2018 than in any year before, and we expect with today’s announcement that even more will use miles to travel the world in the years to come.”
