    I have a friend with 22,300 Eurobonus points that will expire soon. Just wondering what the best use for them might be?

    Options I see are:
    1. On SAS & related carriers, a couple of domestic round-trip award tickets within Scandinavia or one round-trip award between Scandinavian countries.
    2. On Star Alliance, a one-way award within a region (including within North America), or figure out how to come up with the other 2,700 points and get a round trip.
    3. On Star Alliance, a single segment upgrade (although I think these have to be from full Y fare, correct?)
    Any other clever uses anyone can figure out?

    UA allows you to donate your mileage to charity. Maybe the Eurobonus program has that option somewhere?

    Just a question - where is you friend based country wise?

    Here in the US, but has business in Stockholm and elsewhere in Scandinavia -- including hops among countries there -- four times a year or so.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your reply. Given the situation I would say that option 1 where you use the points for an award in Scandinavia is the best option. But you could also suggest to spend it on a hotel night where the 22.000 points fit a night in a good average hotel:

    But the intra Nordic award is the best value IMHO.

    I would particularly recommend OSL-LYR-OSL for two on 20000 points to a fantastic destination.

    I will also support this one - this is a really good deal and a great destination (winter or summer).
