Don’t lose your Airmiles
Your currently saved Airmiles are risk if you do not collect any more in the next 6 months. That is the warning to all Airmiles collectors will be receiving in the post in the coming days.
Airmiles allows shoppers to collect points when they buy particular good and services which can then be redeemed for free flights – the reward scheme has a database of over 1.7 million travellers. Airmiles will be contacting all those who have at least 500 points and have not not collected any within the last 2 years.
The other bit of bad news is that Airmiles intend to charge a £30 admin fee for the redemption of the points if you have not accrued any points in the past 12 months.
Overall you can not blame Airmiles for taking a proactive approach to promoting their Airmiles and for reminding customers who have not been actively using them. We are not quite so sure about the admin fee – even if 1 point helps you avoid it – unless of course Airmiles are planning to tell customers this before they add the fee on?
