We are a family of four, two adults and two children. What are the current best practices when flying using the SAS EuroBonus program? I already have an EuroBouns account but the rest of the family does not. We are not intending to spend any points on this coming flight, only to earn points/miles. Are there any differences when not flying SAS but instead on a partnered Star Alliance airline?
SAS launched Point Sharing in late 2018. From the website:
When you start or join Point Sharing, all your existing EuroBonus points are transferred to the Point Sharing account. During the time you are part of the group all the EuroBonus points that you earn are transferred to the Point sharing account.
It seems the current best method for a family is to each get their own EuroBonus account and earn points there. For family members that are eligible and will spend the requisite amounts connecting a MasterCard or American Express card linked to the account should be considered (http://www.flysas.com/en/us/eurobonus/partner-index-earn/). For those that can wait with their bookings it might be better to wait for the announcement of SAS new family pooling program, said to be coming "fall of 2016" (http://www.flysas.com/en/us/eurobonus/about-eurobonus/family-pooling/).
