A shorten URL will last for 1100 days from creation time. Every redirection will update it's validity for another 1100 days. So basically if used in each 1100 days, the link will not expire at all. To check in a programmatic way You can initiate a GET request like this https://cu8.in/api/?action=info&key=cu8in. Replace the key with yours and then check the validTill from the result.
