Mileage credit and expiration
Miles are subject to expiration from your MileagePlus account after 18 months of inactivity. If you earn miles through one of our partners, it may take up to eight weeks for the miles to credit to your account. If your miles expire after the transaction but before the miles are credited to your account, we will automatically reinstate your balance 7-10 days after the credit appears on your account.
The accrual of miles and Premier® qualifying credits, redemption of awards and provision of benefits through the United MileagePlus program, including the Premier Program, are subject to change and are subject to the rules of the MileagePlus program.
