Information about earning/transferring miles to United: Miles earned during a billing cycle will be automatically transferred to United after the end of each billing cycle.
Miles expiration: The miles transferred to your MileagePlus account will not expire as long as your card account is open. If your card account is closed, the miles in your MileagePlus account will expire according to the MileagePlus program rules.
Losing miles: You'll immediately lose all miles that haven't been transferred to United if your card account status changes, or your card account is closed for program misuse, fraudulent activities, failure to pay, bankruptcy, or other reasons described in the terms of the Rewards Program Agreement.
Miles Don't Expire
