Anyone living in Norway can earn free flights via the Norwegian Reward system. Thanks to the Bank Norwegian credit card, you don't even need to fly with Norwegian to earn the points!
Norwegian Reward, the loyalty program of the airline Norwegian, offers anyone living in Norway the chance to earn free flights, even if you normally fly with other airlines, such as KLM or SAS.
How Norwegian Reward works
Unlike many frequent flyer programs, the program is simply to understand. Whenever you fly with Norwegian, use a Bank Norwegian credit card, or use services from one of their partners, you will earn the loyalty points known as Cashpoints.
When it comes to redeeming those points on free flights, one Cashpoint equals one krone. Simples!
Even if you don't earn many Cashpoints during the year, they can still be spent on something useful. If you earn a few hundred Cashpoints then you can easily afford a domestic flight with Norwegian.
But even if you don't have so many, you can spend them on increasing your luggage allowance, or use of the fast-track security lane, for example.
Earn points without flying
With traditional frequent flyer programs, passengers are rewarded for every flight they take. While that's also the case with Norwegian Reward, members can quickly accrue points through the use of the Bank Norwegian credit card.
The credit card comes with no annual fee, a real bonus when compared to some other travel-related credit cards that come with an annual fee of hundreds of kroner.
The card earns you 1% cashback in the form of Cashpoints on the first 100,000kr purchases you make with the credit card during the calendar year, and 0.5% thereafter.
If your everyday monthly spending on items like food, clothing, fuel, and other products totals 15,000kr over the course of a month, that's 120kr in Cashpoints.
Over the course of a year, your saved Cashpoints could be enough for one or even two return flights with Norwegian, all without taking into account any points you may have earned through flying with them!
If you use your Bank Norwegian credit card when booking airline tickets with Norwegian, you will receive a total of 10% Cashpoints on Flex tickets and 4% on regular tickets. If 50% or more of your trip is paid for with the Bank Norwegian credit card, you will also be covered by the company's travel insurance.
