I recently let you know about the very profitable Hertz SAS promotion, as well as some disappointing new restrictions.

Now, via Frequent Miler, there are 2 more ways to earn bonus SAS miles!  Both Avis and Best Western are giving bonus miles away.  And one of these promotions can be even better than the current Hertz SAS promotion!

In addition to the Hertz SAS promotion, there are 2 other ways to rack up SAS miles, with Avis and Best Western!  Here’s what you need to know.

1.   Avis

You’ll earn 2,500 bonus SAS miles per Avis rental between May and December 2017.  Here are the details:

  • You must make your reservations by April 30, 2017
  • You must pick-up between May 1 and December 31, 2017
  • You must rent for at least 24 hours
  • You must book through this link
  • Not valid for rentals with consecutive rental days (2 back-to-back rentals will count as 1 rental)
  • Only valid for rentals in Europe, The Middle East, Africa, Asia, US, Canada, and New Zealand
  • Not valid with other discounts or promotions
  • You must choose your EuroBonus tier for AWD number

You can read the complete terms of this promotion here.

If You Have a Cheap Car Rental Location Near You (and a Lot of Time to Burn), You Could Earn Enough SAS Miles for a Round-Trip Business Class Flight to Copenhagen for a Fraction of the Cost!

This promotion can be more valuable than the current Hertz promotion.  That’s because only Hertz rentals of 3+ days will qualify for a bonus of 5,000 SAS miles.  But you can earn the same amount of SAS miles with just 2 days worth of rentals through Avis.

Just remember, 2 rentals back-to-back will only count as 1 rental.  So you’ll have to skip a day in between!

2.   Best Western

You can earn 1,800 bonus SAS miles per stay booked by April 30, 2017, and completed by May 31, 2017.  Here are the details:

  • Must book by April 30, 2017
  • Must stay by May 31, 2017
  • Can only earn points for 1 room per stay, and the SAS member must be staying in that room (you can’t earn SAS miles for booking someone else’s stay)
  • You must book through this link
  • Check out the full details here

That’s a nice bonus, but it’s likely NOT worth switching your stays to Best Western if you’re enrolled in other valuable hotel promotions.

You don’t usually hear much about SAS miles, but they can be very useful!  For example, when you fly on SAS airplanes, you can fly:

  • Between Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Norway, and Sweden for 10,000 SAS miles round-trip
  • US to Europe in SAS coach – 60,000 SAS miles round-trip 
  • US to Europe in SAS Business Class – 100,000 SAS miles round-trip 

And kids under 12 years old only pay 50% of these prices!  So this could be an amazing opportunity to earn enough points for a family vacation!

Note:   You can book a one-way ticket for 60% of the round-trip price.

You can also use SAS miles to fly on Star Alliance partners like Singapore Airlines and United Airlines.

You’ll be charged a higher award rate, but it’s still not bad!  For example, you can fly from the US to the Middle East in Business Class for just 120,000 SAS miles round-trip, which is 20,000 miles less than American Airlines charges, and 40,000 miles less than United Airlines charges!

Note:   The child discount of 50% off does NOT apply to partner award flight bookings.

Bottom Line

If you have upcoming Avis rentals, or Best Western stays, this is a no-brainer!  SAS miles can be very valuable, and even if you don’t think you’ll use them in the near future, you never know when they’ll come in handy.
