Do AA Miles really expire?

Do AA Miles really expire?

  1. Anonymous

    Hello. I have a question regarding the AA account information page that states I have “X” miles that are due to expire September 13, 2017. I am an EXP / 2M miler with AA and have never had miles expire on me in the past. Do you think that date will be extended like I’m sure it has in the past? Or, do you think the devaluation coming March 22 has a real play in that date listed in my Account? Thanks.

    Rob, the miles in your AA account will expire after 18 months of account inactivity. So as long as you add or use miles between now and then you’ll be fine. Each time you add or use miles it extends the expiration date another 18 months.

    I guess I was freaking out with the March 22 date approaching I was paranoid. I never really noticed that it is a constant at 18 months ahead (always) as I travel at least once a month. Thanks for your quick reply.
