To help members keep track of expiring points, Aeroplan plans to add an expiration notification to its website. At one time, Aeroplan miles could sit in members’ accounts indefinitely as long as the member remained active in the program. In 2006, the program added a shelf life to miles and beginning Jan. 1, 2007, miles had a seven-year lifespan. Members still have a couple of years before miles will begin to expire as a result of the change and Aeroplan is planning on issuing customer alerts to prepare members. Miles earned before 2007 will expire on Dec. 31, 2013. The program is also looking into including the expiration date for miles in individual member accounts.
