I used to have some Airmiles. Airmiles promised you could keep 'em "for ever". Then they went bust and became Avios. I had a few hundred Avios.
I logged onto my account today to find they've been stolen. It seems that unless you earn more or spend some within a certain period, they just wipe out all you had.
Well stuff that - whatever these schemes were supposed to reward, they all end up leaving a bitter pill when you are prevented from spending them because the thieving swines don't honour the promise made when you sign up.
Is there actually no-one left you can trust?
Not quite the same, but this bloke had his stolen and his loyalty rewarded in a similar manner -
Update - I have a Shell "Loyalty" card - they have been merrily informing me that points earned from spending on fuel have been converted to Avios. Except they haven't. I still have zero Avios.
