SAS has announced a promotion, which allows you to earn double flights and points in their frequent flyer program, Eurobonus, when flying with SAS (last time also with Wideroe). This promotion is valid for flights between November 2022 and the end of February 2023, no matter when they were booked.
When we originally posted this offer on October 20, there was no official information if this offer was targeted at specific members or open to the public. SAS has since launched a landing page. The offer is open to all EuroBonus members.
You’ll be credited the basic points as always + the same amount as status points. Only the basic points can be used for awards, however. The additional status points are merely useful to reach or renew a frequent flyer status.
This opens new possibilities to reach the Silver or Gold status through segments.
Star Alliance Gold Status
For the gold status at Eurobonus (Star Alliance Gold), you usually either need 45 flight segments or 45,000 status points. Since the credits are doubled, 23 flights or 22,500 status points on SAS flights are now sufficient.
We have selected two ways for you below, how you can get the Star Alliance Gold status at a rather cheap price:
23 Segments Within Europe
Basically, there are different options for how you can get the 23 segments cheaply:
- 12 nonstop round trips
- 6 round trips with 1 layover in each direction
- 4 round trips with 2 layovers in each direction
Premium Economy to North America
On long-haul flights, it is easier to earn miles than segments. A sweet spot for the double bonus points is flights from Europe (excluding Scandinavia) to the USA in premium economy. This is how it works out:
- Europe – Scandinavia:
1,500 x 2 x 2 = 6,000 points
- Scandinavia – New York / Boston / Toronto:
4,000 x 2 x 2 = 16,000 points
- Scandinavia – Chicago / Washington DC:
5,000 x 2 x 2 = 20,000 points
- Scandinavia – (Shanghai) / Miami / San Francisco / Los Angeles:
6,000 x 2 x 2 = 24,000 points
You should keep an eye on our SAS premium economy deals as they come back and forth frequently, especially during the winter period.
Getting a Star Alliance Gold status has once again become easier. While not as good as the previous promotions with quadruple points in Summer and Autumn 2021, it still represents a fast track to Star Alliance Gold tier.
