JetBlue Points No Longer Expire Starting Today! AA & UA Next?

JetBlue announced this morning that beginning today, TrueBlue points no longer have an expiration date. This is great news for TrueBlue fans as in the past you could not keep your account active without taking a flight or making a purchase on the affiliated AMEX card.

Delta has the same no expiration policy while American, United, and Virgin America points are subject to expiration after 18 months without activity. Southwest points expire after 24 months of no activity. Will AA & UA follow suit? Probably not…but there is absolutely no reason to ever let your points expire as there are several easy ways to earn or redeem even a single point during those time periods. Feel free to email me if you need assistance keeping an account active.

TrueBlue points are our way of thanking you for your loyalty. But members have expressed concern that accounts must stay active for points to never expire. So, we did something about it. We heard your feedback, and we agree: Your loyalty doesn’t have an expiration date, and your points shouldn’t either. That’s why we’ve dropped the fine print. Starting today, you can hold on to your TrueBlue points until you’re ready to redeem them. No activity requirements. No asterisks. No expiration dates. Just points, glorious points.

  1. This is especially welcome since previously there was no way to keep their points from expiring without flying them or using their credit card.

  2. if “points not expiring” mean revenue-based burn down the road then let’s just keep the status quo

    also, mileage expiring lowers the operational cost for the airline, thus allowing the rest of us to continue doing aspirational awards without breaking the bank … imagine if everyone is saving up for that EK A380 F ?

  3. I don’t think many people care about expiration, people who fly a lot keep earning them, people who don’t, couldn’t care less. Just adds liability to the books.
