JetBlue announced today via Twitter that they are getting rid of expiration on TrueBlue points. JetBlue joins Delta in the “no expiration” club and I hope others follow suit.

While most frequent flyer programs allow you to keep points active by simply having any activity in the account or having a co-branded credit card, millions (and likely billions) of points expire every year, which kills me just to think about!

Here’s a quick rundown of the expiration policy of other airlines.

Airline Expiration Term
Aeromexico 24 months
Air Canada (Aeroplan) 12 months/7 years
Alaska Airlines 24 months
Alitalia 24 months within current 5 year period/6 months after previous period ends
American Airlines 18 months
ANA 36 months
British Airways 36 months
Cathay Pacific (Asia Miles) 36 months
Delta (Sky Miles) No expiration
Emirates 3 years
Flying Blue: Air France/KLM 20 months
Hawaiian Airlines 18 months
JetBlue No expiration
Korean Air 7 years
LAN 36 months
Lufthansa (Miles & More) 36 months
Qantas 18 months
Singapore Airlines 36 months
Southwest 24 months
United Airlines 18 months
US Airways 18 months
Virgin America 18 months
Virgin Atlantic 36 months

While it’s easy enough to earn miles every day with credit card spending, dining out and shopping portals, not having to worry about expiration dates at all would be a nice step forward.
