With the exception of Delta Airlines' Skymiles program, most airline loyalty programs have an points expiry policy.  Typically, airline frequent-fly programs will state that all points will expire (and in some cases the account will be deactivated) after 12-, 18-, or 24- months without any "activity." 

In the trade, we call this "earning and burning" - ie. collecting points or cashing in points.  Either counts as "activity," that will serve to keep your points alive.  For those of us more or less stranded at home during the pandemic,...
