7 Lesser-Known Ways to Use Your Loyalty Program Points or Miles

U.S. News & World Report - Travel Logo By Christine Smith of U.S. News & World Report - Travel | Slide 2 of 8: American Airlines AAdvantage program members have the option to exchange points for identity theft protection. After earning 2,500 miles, program participants can cash in their miles for a six-month LifeLock membership. This standard protection membership, which costs about $60 to buy out of pocket, sends alerts when potential identity threats are detected and provides assistance with canceling and replacing stolen credit cards, among other benefits. Members can keep their identity theft protection beyond six months, but a monthly or yearly fee (10 percent less than standard rates) will apply.
