Protecting your frequent-flier miles

Many carriers, including American Airlines and US Airways, wipe all
miles from accounts that have been inactive for 18 months. Here are
three easy ways you can keep them current. First, update the mailing
and e-mail addresses on your airline accounts to ensure that
statements—which may or may not contain an expiration date—arrive
safely in your in-box. Sign up for free Web services, such as awardwallet.com,
which keep track of sneaky expiration dates and notify you when it’s
time to update. Finally, register your credit card with your airline;
programs such as AAdvantage eShopping earn you miles every time you
shop and reset the clock on your expiration dates the same way booking
a flight does.
