Mar 25 Update: Etihad Sale from YYZ, Delta SkyMiles no longer transferable if you pass away

Please note that this will be a short week as no updates will take place on Good Friday or Easter Monday.

News, Tips & Tricks
March 2013 has been an unusually slow month for travel reward program news and bonus offers! I only have one piece of news today:

If you read the Financial Post you may recall me being quoted in an article called "Heir Miles: Your loyalty points don’t have to die with you" and funny enough a little over a week after that article Delta SkyMiles revised their policy on SkyMiles when a member passes away (I don't believe the article had anything to do with their decision)LoyaltyLobby reports that they have changed their policy from one of being able to transfer the miles out of a deceased members account to one were miles cannot be transferred.  As I stressed in the FP article the best way around this is to provide your loved ones with your accounts and passwords and let them use the miles from your account should you pass away.
