SAS’ EuroBonus program remains one of the easier options within Star Alliance with which to achieve Gold status. And now, you are even awarded lifetime Gold status after 10 consecutive years as Gold or Diamond member – no exceptions whatsoever apply. You should note though that you don’t qualify for lifetime status if you were given Gold status by a Diamond member as part of his or her benefit package. The former offer exclusive to customers aged 60 or above (lifetime status after 10 not necessarily consecutive years at Gold level) remains valid as well. Other interesting news: Up to eight members can now combine their points completely free of charge – no need to be of the same family or live at the same address.
