Infinite Elite Mileage Plus Cards ?

Has any COl IE member received with "Valid for Life" instead of an expiration date. My wife and I, both IE's, received 1K cards with MM status in March, but they don't mention anything about IE and say valid thru 01/2013.

Wecome to FT!

You will get a new card every year. All "lifetime cards" have expiration dates on them.

Edit: You get 1K for life but without the annual upgrade instruments: http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/17146346-post1.html

I called MP today. My card also shows the expiration date of 1/2013.

I wanted to confirm that I was Infinite in the system and if I should be getting a new card of "valid through life".

I earned 1K last year - so I wanted to be sure Infinite is in my profile. My card is the same card I would have as a MMer and earned 1K (without LT status).

After about 1/2 hour on the phone - agent came back and said she would request a new card and that it should be valid through life.

When I first queried her, the Infinite/Lifetime did not show in the system- she says it was likely in non-visible area. But she confirmed my status with a director and also getting a new card.
