  1. Hi all, just joined. Excited to learn and share. I love to travel, don't get to do it as often as I'd like but maybe with the tips here I will. I belong to multiple frequent flyer programs and have my miles spread around. Not too productive and then they expire. My favorite places to go right now are Florida/Disney and the Carribbean. I'm always researching flights/hotels/rental cars.

    Anyway....Hi!
    Mary

    Welcome, Mary. One of the first things I'd suggest is that you pop into the airline forums where you have miles and find the ways to keep them from expiring. There may be only a few miles that expire, but would you let a few $$ go to the bank because you didn't make a deposit or withdrawal?

    Hi Mary - welcome from another Newbie - follow the advice of Duke City and keep those miles. They were hard earned and they are yours!
    Welcome

    :eek: Noooooooooooo!

    :D Welcome. One quick tip - you can sometimes easily keep your miles from expiring by making a $1 iTunes purchase through shopping portals.

    probably 16 minutes ago. Scores and updates happen at 40 minutes after the hour.
