While Norwegian may not be a part of a major alliance and these cheap flights won’t help towards any major elite status, you can still bank extra credit card points by using a card that maximizes airfare purchases, like 3x on airfare with the American Express® Gold Card or 2x on the Chase Sapphire Preferred.
