Help! Continental SWU expiring 2/29/12

I am trying to use my CO SWU expires 2/29/12 for March which can confirm not waitlist and they are telling me it must be flown by the expiration not applied. I was under the impression that as long as it would confirm by the expiration date I would be good to go. Anyone have the official policy?

Fly by 2/29 and burn it or it will be gone. The agent is correct. I had 2 expire on 1/31 and they went poof. You can always trade it or give it away if you're not using it (in coupon connection)

you might be able to extend it (unless it's already extended)

Not this year..there's a thread about that. Many have tried, none (or nearly none) have succeeded.
