Rules

# Expiration

Your points will expire after X days.

The recommended period for this rule is 365 days.

The expiration rule is designed to encourage customers to use their points within a certain timeframe. This rule helps maintain the effectiveness of your rewards program by ensuring that points are actively used rather than hoarded. The expiration rule specifies that points earned by customers will expire after a set number of days.

## How it works
