An exclusive guide to getting the most from your Air Miles before they expire

By Rob Carrick

Long-time Air Miles collectors like me have some work to do in the remainder of 2016. As of year’s end, Air Miles older than five years will start expiring. That means we either use the points we’ve gathered over the long term (23 years for me), or lose them. How can we make best use of our points? For answers, I consulted Patrick Sojka, CEO and founder of RewardsCanada.ca, a website devoted to travel rewards. His answers to my questions are reserved just for subscribers to this newsletter and globeandmail.com subscribers.
