  1. Considering that an Air Mile is worth about 12 to 14 cents at the best of times (and under 10 cents for "Air Miles Cash", this isn't much of a deal. I stopped carrying an Air Miles credit card a while back, around the time they decided all miles would expire after 5 years, even if you were still saving for your "dream" reward.

  2. I have come to the same conclusion, but would also like to add that every time I tried to use my airmiles for flights, there was either no flights available, or, I had to alter my vacation plans to find a day that did have airmile flights for us. The expiry date was just the icing on the cake.
