Many airlines have account mileage expiration dates due to lack of activity in an account. Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan Miles expire if there is no “qualifying activity” after 2 years.
I have about 12,000 miles sitting in my Alaska Airlines Milage Plan account which I received back in March of 2017 when Virgin America was acquired by Alaska Airlines and my Virgin America Miles were converted to Mileage Plan miles.
I have not done anything with my Mileage Plan miles since this initial deposit, and now 2 years later, my miles were due to expire in March, 2019.
So, as I have often done in the past, I ordered just one travel magazine subscription through the Mileage Plan website for a mere 100 miles to prevent my Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan miles from expiring. I can’t help it, I am a dinosaur and still like reading magazines, especially when I travel. Not to mention, it is an easy way to extend your mileage expiration date for a small price.
