NSX-I have a similar situation with plans on similar moves but would appreciate your thoughts:

1) Currently have 2 A+ credits set to expire July 1, 2014
2) Prior to July 1, will transfer these 2 A+ credits to WN for 2 WN credits
3) Will transfer 16,800 WN points (which equals 14 WN credits) to bring total WN credits to 16 and a WN Standard Reward will automatically be issued with an expiration date of one year (i.e. July 1, 2015)
4) Will transfer the WN Standard Reward back to Airtran (16 A+ credits)
5) On Nov 2nd my 16 A+ credits will be automatically credit back to WN as 19,200 SW points

My question in regards to your earlier response is why you recommend a transfer back to WN after you transfer them once to Airtran? You mention reset of exp date but I thought the exp date would be reset for one year when the 16 WN credits are converted to a WN Standard Reward?

I am fairly new to this so I appreciate your input-Thanks
