FWIW on this mileage expiration topic, I'm a member of Best Buy's reward program. They automatically send me a $20 cert for every 2k points (or something like that). The catch is that the cert expires about two months (or less) from issue. I just didn't make it to Best Buy, so the points are gone, the cert is worthless. Just another example to add some perspective to how FFP programs differ.
Best Buy has not changed the expiration dates on those buyer program certificates after having marketed a given expiration date on them -- DL however has a history of playing games with expiring miles and doing so in misleading ways that Best Buy has not done when it comes to the Best Buy frequent buyer coupons you mentioned.
