  1. There was earlier a link to the Hyatt card at the bottom when you view on the web. It gave an error “page is not available.” when I clicked on it. Now there is a link to Best Buy now that is working fine. Just trying to help 🙂

  2. Thank you, Mark!
    Actually, it is not as cut and dry from several experiences with family and acquaintances when they had sudden, unexpected deaths of a family member with a stash of miles or points. Some were able to transfer or use, some were not.
    Housekeeping comment: The link to the Hyatt card is broken…

  3. Thank you, Mark, as always. Any ideas about what might be a good reviews or a spreadsheet addressing how different miles and points programs address what happens when the person to whom the miles and points “belong” passes away?

    • I haven’t seen anything on that. I think most people will say to book travel for others, using up the miles or points, before shutting it down. I think even the program reps have told people to do that. Pretty sure they are just lost otherwise most of the time.
