    Announced in a newsletter today - it's now possible to transfer points to other EB-accounts, or to yourself, adding 4 more years of points life. One *tiny* drawback though; you will be charged EUR 30 for each batch of 3000 points transfered... :eek: Valid only until 18 december.

    "Give points to family or friends
    Give points to a close friend or a family member! Orders can be made on this webpage between the 5-18th of December (you cannot place an order through EuroBonus Member Service). The points that you give away will immediately be deducted from your account, and will then be given to the recipient by the 24th of December. The points will be valid for up to 4 years, so your lucky friend has plenty of time to figure out how to spend them.


    If you have points that are due to expire, you can also choose to enter your own EuroBonus-number in the recipient-field. The points will immediately be deducted from your account, and will then be returned to you by the 24th of December with a new, fresh expiry date 4 years into the future.

    Regardless if you give the points to yourself or someone else, the points that are given to the recipient will be Extra Points that can be used for rewards but do not qualify for higher membership levels. A transaction fee of 30 Euro will be charged for every 3000 points you want to give away or extend."

    I think that this is a good idea, if a little expensive. But what if one wan`t to give away more than 24000 points?

    Who will use this? Not me - reason is that 3000 point is basically not something you can use for other than BoB.

    So only for the renewal it is worth something but who in here have that problem with points?

    EB should allow transfer once a year for a fix fee to other accounts like Qantas is doing. This would help getting miles used more efficiently for both EB and the account owner.
