Christmas is a time of giving. One easy and rewarding way to give is by donating your airmiles to those in need. What only takes a few seconds, allows a worthy individual to care for others or get the care they need.
This Christmas, why not consider helping others and offloading those airmiles you'll never use.
How it works
- login to your airline of choice's website [or directly go to donation links below]
- navigate to donate air miles webpage
Sample of airlines with online air miles giving
According to miledonor.com: "American Airlines, Continental Airlines and Northwest Airlines allow earned mileage to be donated in any amount. Frontier Airlines, Midwest Airlines and United Airlines allow donations of a minimum 1,000 miles; Air Canada requires a 2,500-mile minimum and Delta Air Lines and US Airways allow donations of at least 5,000 miles."
Also don't forget that individual organizations like make-a-wish also accept miles directly.
Finally, in most cases donated airmiles are not tax deductible because they are recognized as a gift or an award.
