How To Donate Airline Points and Miles

Many travelers have cancelled or postponed plans during the Covid-19 pandemic. As such, you may have some extra airline points or miles burning a hole in your pocket. This article details various charities to which you can donate your rewards to help others.

The Points Guy ~ “ As much as I love to earn points and miles, I’ve learned to never hoard them as they are always devaluing. In fact, I have accrued lots of miles throughout the pandemic that I won’t redeem soon. If you’re in the same boat, you can actually donate your points & miles to various organizations that are in need. This can be a great way to give back without shelling out any cash. Even small contributions can make a huge difference in another person’s life, so it’s worth learning how your unused points and miles can be put to good use.

Giving back through these partnerships can be a great way to donate smaller balances of points and miles. For example, I have 840 American AAdvantage miles that I do not foresee myself using. Therefore, I donated these miles to Miles for Our Social Good, which supports various organizations in providing humanitarian relief.

International airlines have similar charity partnerships. If you have mileage balances with Lufthansa, Emirates or Aeroplan, you can offer those up to charity. Virgin Atlantic also has a partnership with Free the Children where you can donate your Flying Club miles.” ~ The Points Guy
