My AA points expired, anyway to get them back?
« on: March 27, 2017, 11:57:58 AM »
I had 100,000 AAdvantage points and they disappeared from my account. When I called them they said they expired in February. Is there anyone I can call that can help me get them back? They said I can pay $200 to get back 50,000 points or I can buy a round trip ticket in the next 6 months to get back 50,000 but of course I'd rather not pay. Please help.

If you have (or can find) an old car rental (pre-point expiration) that you can apply to your AA account, you should be able to reinstate retroactively

how exactly does that work? Did you have to have AA listed as your travel partner with the rental company or ??? Never heard of that so curious if I can use it to reclaim some miles for my wife's account.
