There is breaking news for Air Miles collectors today. Many were outraged at the Air Miles expiration policy which was to take effect on December 31st, when all of your Air Miles accumulated five years and prior would vanish from your account. Air Miles has now decided to cancel this policy, and your existing Air Miles, five years or older, are no longer at risk of being taken from you.
This is fantastic news for those of you have not yet used those points and will see them remain in your account. However, this is a bit of a slap in the face to those of you who may have made haste to redeem your miles for things you may not have otherwise, simply because you risked losing them.
I switched my Air Miles to cash miles, from dream miles when they were introduced, as I had no dream miles of value accumulated, and have never managed to rack up any substantial amount of miles anyhow. For those of you who were more affected by this, now that “date stamping” your miles is now longer an issue, will you continue to collect Air Miles as you have in the past? How do you feel about Air Miles and this decision?
