CashPoints is Norwegian's digital currency, with a value equivalent to that of the Norwegian Krone.
Members may earn Rewards on their activity, such as the number of flights purchased and taken. Available Rewards may vary, and campaign Rewards may also be offered.

Visit the help and contact page for more information on which Reward Partners allow registration after a purchase.
3.5 Earned CashPoints will be available for use once the transaction data or the information about CashPoints earned is transferred from the Reward Partner to Norwegian Reward. There may be considerable variation as to when transaction data is transferred. Details about the usual data transfer times for each Reward Partner is available at norwegianreward.com. It normally takes 14 working days after the transaction data has been received by Norwegian Reward for CashPoints to become available for use by the Member. If registration of the transaction data does not happen, regardless of the reason, all requests or demands for missing CashPoints must be submitted directly to the respective Reward Partner with which the purchase was completed. Norwegian Reward waives all liability for the registration of missing CashPoints with Reward Partners.

5.1 General conditions for Family Account
Family Account is a feature provided to Members who wish to collect family members’ earned CashPoints in one account. This makes it easier to use the Family's earned CashPoints when booking tickets at Norwegian.com. Please read the following carefully before joining a Family Account.
All earned CashPoints are transferred from the Member to the Family Account by creation of a Family Account or acceptance of an invitation to a Family Account. CashPoints earned by the Member while being part of a Family Account are transferred to the Family Account. Any transfer of CashPoints from the Member’s individual account to a Family Account is non-refundable and irreversible.
By joining or creating a Family Account, the Member accepts being part of the Family Account for at least three (3) months. A Member can only be part of one (1) Family Account.
All members of a Family Account can redeem CashPoints, but only the Family Account administrator (“Captain”) can manage participating members’ redemption access on norwegianreward.com.
The Member’s Rewards and registered flights will not be affected when joining a Family Account. The Member will keep the registered flights and earned Rewards as individual benefits.
Members may use Family Account for personal purposes and while traveling for business purposes but not for any commercial or other use. Norwegian Reward reserves the right to delete Family Accounts that are used for commercial purposes.
5.2 Creation of a Family Account
To start a Family Account, you must be eighteen (18) years of age or older. By starting a Family Account, you are considered the Captain of the Family Account. The Captain of the Family Account may invite up to six (6) other Members into the Family Account. A Norwegian Reward Member who is invited to join the Family Account must accept the invitation by logging into his or her Norwegian Reward account, completing the electronic registration process and entering all required information. If the Captain of Family Account invites a Norwegian Reward Member who is under the age of sixteen (16) to join a Family Account, that child's guardian must access the child's Norwegian Reward account online to accept on his/her behalf.
As soon as one (1) Norwegian Reward Member accepts the invitation from the Captain of the Family Account to join the Family Account, the minimum number of Family Account members has been satisfied, and the Family Account is officially created.
If the Captain of the Family Account wishes to leave the Family Account or terminate his/her Norwegian Reward membership, another member of the Family Account must be appointed as Captain of the Family Account. When surrendering the role as Captain of the Family Account, existing CashPoints will remain in the Family Account and accordingly may not be transferred back to a personal account. In order to change the Captain of the Family Account, you must contact us.
The Captain of the Family Account:

5.4 Other Norwegian Reward bonus offers
Eligibility for Norwegian Reward bonuses and benefits, such as Rewards, or other offers, is based solely on individual actions. This includes, but is not limited to: travel, use of Norwegian Reward Partners, participation in games, or any other program-related activity in which a Member may partake. CashPoints earned by other members of a Family Account will not count towards bonuses or benefits awarded to Members based on their individual activity within the Norwegian Reward program.
6.1 Children can also become Members of Norwegian Reward in order to earn CashPoints and Rewards on their travel with Norwegian. For children under the age of 16, a guardian must create and manage a child’s membership (“Child Account”) on his/her behalf until the child reaches the age of 16. A guardian may manage a Child Account until the child reaches the age of 18, should the guardian wish to do so.
6.2 In order to fulfill legal requirements, Norwegian Reward collects information about a child's date of birth. It does this to ensure that all marketing communication towards the child as a Member of the Norwegian Reward program meets the current marketing regulations for children. Information about a Member's date of birth is also necessary in order to initiate the process of converting a membership for a child into a membership for an adult.
6.3 A guardian who creates a Child Account must be 18 years or older. The guardian who creates a Child Account has access to use the child’s CashPoints and to manage the child’s Rewards.
When creating a Child Account, a Family Account is also simultaneously created, with the guardian who created the Child Account set as the Family Account administrator, or “Captain” of the Family Account. If the guardian is already part of a Family Account, the Captain of said Family Account is required to create a Child Account for the child. All terms and conditions relating to Family Accounts apply when a child forms part of a Family Account.
When a Member with a Child Account turns 16 years old, the guardian will receive an email with a request to register the child's email address. Once an email address is provided by the guardian, the child concerned will then receive a separate email with information about membership in Norwegian Reward and the opportunity to choose whether to remain a Member or not. If the child wishes to remain a Member of Norwegian Reward, he/she will be able to manage his/her membership, including consent given for the processing of profile information and communication towards the Member.
If the guardian has not provided the child's email address before the child reaches the age of 18, the child's membership and profile information will be deleted, including any earned Rewards.
7.1 Modifications or cancelation of program:
Norwegian Reward reserves the right to modify, suspend or cancel the Reward program and/or the Family Account feature, in whole or in part, at any time. Any changes Norwegian Reward makes will be effective immediately on the date of notice, which it may give either by posting on the Norwegian Reward site or by sending notice to Members via email. A Member’s participation in the program after the date of such notice will be deemed acceptance of such changes.
7.2 Changes to these terms:
Norwegian Reward has the right, at any time and with a least one month’s notice, to change the existing terms and conditions, including, without limitation, changing the rules about earning and redeeming CashPoints and Rewards. For changes to already conducted transactions, the Member is entitled to a three (3) months' notice period, while changes in future transactions require one (1) month’s notice. The Member may be informed about this via email. Information about changes can also be obtained by visiting norwegianreward.com.

Any transactions using a Member's login data shall be deemed to be authorized by said Member. Norwegian Reward assumes no liability in connection with stolen, misused or unauthorized access to Members’ login details. In any such event, the Member is responsible for contacting Norwegian Reward as soon as possible in an attempt to prevent any misuse of the Member’s account.
