Plusgrade is no longer in use by SAS. They run their own bid process as of February 2nd 2022.

These are the new terms and conditions: https://www.flysas.com/travel/upgrad...rade-tc-en.pdf.

As a major change to the flow, successful bids no longer earn points from the upgraded booking class, but gets a fixed number of additional points depending on the regions of the flight:


Within and between Sweden, Denmark (incl The Faeroe Islands), Norway, Finland, Estonia, and Latvia
  • SAS Go to SAS Plus: 250 Basispoints
To, from, and within other European countries:
  • SAS Go to SAS Plus: 500 Basispoints
To and from Asia and the US:
  • SAS Go to SAS Plus: 1500 Basispoints
  • SAS Plus to SAS Business: 1500 Basispoints
  • SAS Go to SAS Business: 3000 Basispoints

I'm not hopeful for my chances of upgrade to business next Friday. There's 4 of us, and there's 8 seats showing as open on the seat map.. and that's assuming everyone selected a seat.

Went in successful after all. Y smart to PE, 13100 points, cleared 12 hours before departure. Arn-Ewr

ORD-ARN, bid minimum bid of 300 Euro (+EBD bonus) for upgrade from PE to Business. Upgraded at t-24 h.

A couple weeks ago I won a bid for 24k points (+EBD) for the same class upgrade on ORD-CPH? Also cleared t-24 h.

Successful bid. 4pax, GO->Biz. Bid was "medium". Cleared at 24hrs. IAD-CPH. Before notification, 10 seats available.
Minimum bids started off ridiculously high ($1K+) then dropped to $800, $770, and sat at $462. I placed my bid when I booked months ago & adjusted accordingly. Our return flight shot back up from $462 to over $1K. No tanks.

Ours was not successful but I suspect it was because business class was full.

EWR - CPH bidding 500 /pp for plus -> business for four - got a message around 6 hours out that we were outbid

watching the seat map though I think there was no room to upgrade us into. Its the Friday before spring break.

the lounge was also nearly full when we got here at 3pm, despite security being no wait.
