United Airlines announced last week that, effective immediately, its MileagePlus award miles will never expire — giving members a lifetime to apply their miles to flights, experiences, hotels, and more.

"We want to demonstrate to our members that we are committed to them for the long haul, and giving customers a lifetime to use miles is an exceptionally meaningful benefit," said Luc Bondar, vice president of loyalty and president of MileagePlus at United. "Our MileagePlus program provides customers more ways to earn and use miles than any other U.S. airline. More customers used miles to book awards trips in 2018 than in any year before, and we expect with today's announcement, that even more will use miles to travel the world in the years to come."

United continues to enhance its award-winning MileagePlus program, making it more appealing to customers. Some of the benefits include the recently announced partnership with CLEAR that includes free or discounted CLEAR membership pricing for U.S.-based MileagePlus members, and everyday opportunities to use miles starting as low as 1,000 miles for eGift cards when purchasing through MileagePlus.

The program will also award travel to more destinations than any other U.S. airline, with service to more than 1,300 destinations through United and Star Alliance partners, and the ability to book award travel on United and all Star Alliance partners through the United mobile.
