How do you find out when coins expire?

I got an email from amazon a few days ago saying that I was going to lose them if i didn't use them.

Buy or spend any amount of coins and it resets the expiration date. Makes it a year from that day iirc.

What kind of apps do you use on your phone?

Scribblenauts Remix is a fun little game, and only $0.99 (or 99 coins):

As Trevor stated, spending any amount of coins extends the expiration for all your coins another year, so you could buy something small now just to give you more time to figure out what else, if anything, you want to buy.

Crap, forgot about all my free coins for the last 14 months or so. Lost about $22 worth.

^ Correction. I didn't forget. I double checked and did place orders using my coins every six months or less. Apparently Amazon changed the policy where using coins reset the expiration dates.

Odd. I still have 2,766 coins, and I last spent 108 coins (99 coins plus tax, yay New York!) on September 15, 2016

The policy still looks the same:

Coins you earn expire one year after the later of the date we give them to you or the date you last purchased or redeemed Coins.
Try contacting customer support, see if they can explain why your coins expired.
