A former customer who is no longer an active buyer.

A dead expire is a magazine subscription record that has expired without renewal and is eventually removed from the active subscriber list. Dead expire lists are usually maintained for two to three years for promotion purposes. Beyond three years, the names on the list are assumed to be of no value because the addresses may no longer be valid.

Synonyms: inactive buyer, dead expire
