Keeping Eurobonus points from expiring

I have a decent amount of points that are expiring in Feb 2019. I have no travel plans before then.

I am trying to find some kind of activity that will keep points from expiring.
I tried to buy something from their online shop but the shipping was 19k points on an 1800 point purchase!

if my husband transfers some of his SAS points to me will that work?

I also have Amex MRs and Chase URs if that will help as s transfer.
Thanks.

There is no way to extend EB validity by activities. On the more creative note, someone will suggest attaining Diamond status before Feb, so might as well put that in. While having Diamond and Pandion status points have no expiry, and are valid for 5 years after dropping to lower status again.

You don't need to travel before the points expire. Just book the tickets before. So you in reality have a year extra of potential travel plans. Just note that of you cancel a ticket after the point used have expired they are lost. Also note that some changes acts as a cancellation and rebooking, so consider the travel plans after point to expiry fairly set in stone.

If you find no use for them you can also donate them.
