No. the no-fee card won't preserve your LH miles from expiring...

The barclays phone agent assured me that the miles can be preserved with the downgraded card, but she is wrong. I was shocked to see my account started showing 55+ K miles are set to expire at the end of the year so i called M&M customer service line, M&M phone agent told me i would need to have the world-elite mastercard (annual fee version) to preserve the miles.

Called in every time, saying that the old LH M&M account is closed, they say that's right, but it needs to have been closed for 24 months, then you can apply again. Effectively, they are now enforcing the same rules as for the Aviator card for the LH M&M card. Which sucks, because there are no other LH M&M earning cards with a bonus.

Another one bites the dust ...
i applied recently, and was declined bc previously have had the product. when i called in, recon said i need to wait 24 months from the time i last cancelled the card. so it's the same msg as you.

but according to recon, i dont get a HP for this kind of application denial. so i guess that's the silver lining.

Anyone know if getting the card will make miles set to expire, not expire? Assuming keeping up with the requirements with the new cards

If you have the credit card and use it regularly any miles on your account linked to the credit card will not expire.

If approved for this card in Sep, would it preserve miles set to expire in Dec? I believe T&C's say something about 3 months.

The moment you use the card the miles on the account are preserved. Just make sure you are using it and generating a statement each month.
