40k expired united miles
« on: August 09, 2009, 12:32:45 AM »
On August 5 I called united to see how many mile I had and the told me they expired on Aug. 1 because of 18 months of inactivity.

They told me that I have to buy them back at $.0125 or they are gone, or I can pay $199 and buy a flight from united and then they will reinstate the miles.

Any advice I feel they hve no right to do this.

The told me that it's controlled by computers and there is no one that can bend the rules.

If you didn't fly in 18 months and had zero activity then your miles go poof.
