Just go on their website, click on "AA advantage", and then redeem miles

Anyone had luck with Miles and More expired miles that expired as a result of being over 3 years old, not just lack of activity?

 if I have it British Airway miles expiring in the next month or two what's the best way to keep it active? If I have a friend of mine which took out a car rental can I use his rental to renew my mileage on my British Airways account?

 Anyone know if shopping through ba.com works for extending your miles?

You can try a car rental. Otherwise, just book a random domestic award ticket and pay $5.60 in taxes, and cancel after 24 hours. The miles will be redeposited minus $5.60, and the expiration will be extended.

I guess I will have to do that unless my shopping through ba worked. Thanks

They have a bunch for 500-800 miles now. When I needed a subscription before, they cost more miles.

I have United miles that expired in Jan of this year. It seems like using a Hertz rental would only work if the pickup and drop-off where on Jan 1st. Anyone know if Thrifty or Dollar is more lenient?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.
