Save 50% on Economy Class award tickets between Toronto or Vancouver and Europe


As we do each month we bring you the latest set Miles & More "Meilenschnaeppchen" discounted mileage awards!  This month we only see 50% off flights in Economy Class on Lufthansa out of Vancouver and Toronto.

These are good for travel on Lufthansa from August  1 to September 15 and must be booked by April 30.

With this off you can redeem Miles & More miles for round trip economy class tickets on from Toronto or Vancouver to dozens of destinations in Poland for only 30,000 miles. This is a 50% discount off the normal Economy Class award ticket price of 60,000 miles. Now Miles & More has some major fees for redeeming on Lufthansa so be sure you also check what a revenue ticket costs however seeing that these are for August and September when economy tickets can head well north of $1,000 each, redeeming 30,000 miles and $500-$600 in fees could be the savings you are looking for.

Here is an example of some of the cities you can redeem for:


As we mention every time they have the 50% off economy offer is that you could in theory get close to amount required to redeem for the tickets with grabbing a single credit card that has a $120 annual fee! How so? As we always mention in this post you can boost your Miles & More account with the Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express. Currently the card comes with a 20,000 Starpoints sign up bonus and when you convert those 20,000 Starpoints to Miles & More SPG will award you an additional 5,000 miles. Which gives you 25,000 miles. Of course if you spend $5,000 on the card that will easily boost you to the 30,000 miles required. That's enough miles to redeem for one of the economy class tickets in this offer.  If you have or had the Chase Marriott Visa then your in luck as you can go for the 25,000 Starpoint offer on the SPG card which with the additional bonus provided by SPG gives you enough miles for the economy class offer. Of course timing of getting the card now, spending and getting the points will likely not happen for this month but it sets you up for future offers.  Need to grab two tickets? You could choose to get one SPG card for yourself and you for your partner or spouse. If that's not your situation and want two tickets for yourself you could also grab The Starwood Preferred Guest Business Credit Card from American Express as it also has 20,000 point sign up bonus and then you would ultimately be able to have 50,000 Miles & More miles not including spending.
