United Airlines has announced that effective immediately, MileagePlus award miles never expire, giving members a lifetime to use miles on flights, experiences, hotels and more.
“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,” said Luc Bondar, vice president of loyalty and president of MileagePlus at United, in a news release.
“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,” Bondar added.
United also continues to enhance its award-winning MileagePlus program, making it more beneficial for customers. Highlights include:
* Recently announced partnership with CLEAR that includes free or discounted CLEAR membership pricing for U.S.-based MileagePlus members;
* Award travel to more destinations than any other U.S. airline with service to more than 1,300 destinations through United and Star Alliance partners, and ability to book award travel on United and all Star Alliance partners through the United mobile app;
* Most low-priced economy award availability of any global U.S. airline; and
* Everyday opportunities to use miles starting as low as 1,000 miles for eGift cards when purchasing through MileagePlusX.
United also recently introduced ConnectionSaver, a new tool dedicated to improving the experience for customers connecting from one United flight to the next.
