NEW YORK, April 25 (Reuters) – If you’ve spent the last
several years loyally flying American Airlines or US Airways,
you’re probably wondering what would happen to the frequent
flyer miles you have built up if the airlines were to merge.
Consumers likely won’t lose the miles they’ve already
accumulated if a merger does come to pass. However, when other
airlines have merged, consumers have lost some popular perks
such as free upgrades and the chance to accumulate points while
flying other carriers.

(Reuters) – When an older relative dies, the family often finds itself with the stamp collections, Queen Anne furniture and stacks of old TV Guides that piled up over a lifetime. Collectibles can be hard to sort through in terms of both monetary and sentimental value.
Modern technology can help you create an inventory and find out what the items are worth, but deciding who gets what and how to handle the things nobody wants is a perennial problem.
