Just came across your blog and signed up for AwardWallet site. I’m new to travel with miles, I have been trying to accumulate some miles, but haven’t really started to figure out how to use it. As I was entering the programs on AwardWallet site, I realized i have 9304 United miles that expired on 10/1/2013 and I have an option of reinstating them for a fee of $100. Is it worth spending $100 on these miles? I have an Amex blue card and Citi AA Advantage card that have been accumulating points/miles. If I redeem these miles, would I be able to use them in conjunction with any other airline?
@ Paula — You couldn’t use them in conjunction with the miles on either of those cards. If you had a larger balance/source of United miles I’d say it’s worth reinstating, but at over one cent per mile I probably wouldn’t otherwise do it.
