Title: Extend El Al Matmid Points Expiration date
Post by: mb on January 30, 2012, 07:45:02 PM
Just got an e-mail that I have 1200 El Al Matmid points expiring in April.  Anyway to have the expiration date extended?  Is flying the only way?

A matmid CSR just told me that points earned by flying expire 3 years from when they are earned regardless of activity (see #3 here (http://www.elal.co.il/elal/english/matmidfrequentflyer/abouttheclub/en_ffquestionsandanswers.html)), kindly CMIIW.

You can issue a OW or RT voucher  valid for 1 year.

I did this once. There may be a fee if you want to change the name later on the voucher, I don't remember it was a few years ago.

I can't help but marvel how they get away with these ludicrous policy's.
