The Tip

Inheriting frequent flier miles

Advertisement

Do the rules and regulations associated with frequent flier miles leave you confused? Airfarewatchdog, an airline deal and money-saving tip website, has released an updated chart on US airlines’ policies regarding inheriting and transferring miles before they expire (http://www.airfarewatchdog.com/blog/155001 36/inheriting-frequent-flyer-miles/). The chart makes it easy to compare what each website says, what a call to the service center revealed, the cost to transfer miles among the living, and the documentation needed to process a deceased’s account. Though many airlines issue blanket statements in their rules that miles are not transferable, many do allow miles to be inherited. Airlines on this list include Alaska, American, Delta, JetBlue, Southwest, United, and US Airways.
