Up to 50% off Austrian Airlines & Lufthansa Economy and Business Class award tickets between Toronto or Vancouver and Europe


As we do each month we bring you the latest set Miles & More "Meilenschnaeppchen" or Mileage Bargain discounted mileage awards. This month the offers are for flying on Austrian Airlines or Lufthansa from Toronto or just Lufthansa from Vancouver


Toronto
Austrian Airlines Business Class
Book by February for travel until April 30, 2019

Toronto
Lufthansa Economy Class
Book by February 28 for travel between June 1 - July 15 , 2019

Vancouver
Lufthansa Economy or Business Class
Book by February 28 for travel between June 1 - July 15 , 2019

With this offer you can redeem Miles & More miles for round trip business class tickets on Austrian or Lufthansa for only 55,000 miles. This is nearly a 50% discount off the normal award ticket price of 105,000 miles (soon to be 112,000 so we can only assume the discounted price will go up as well). Remember however Miles & More charges some major fees for redeeming miles on these flights so be sure you also check what a revenue ticket costs however remember this is for business class so even several hundreds of dollars in fees along with 55,000 miles could be the savings you are looking for.

Here are some of the Business Class offers this month:



You can also choose to redeem 30,000 miles for round-trip Economy Class  Lufthansa flights out of both Toronto Vancouver to Europe. This is a 50% discount off the normal Economy Class award ticket price of 60,000 miles.

Here is an example of some of them:


Short on Miles & More miles? Your best bet is to convert Marriott Rewards points to Miles & More on a 3:1 basis plus you'll earn 5,000 bonus miles when you convert 60,000 points at a time. That means 75,000 points is all it would take to get one of the economy class tickets if you don't have any Miles & More miles to your name.

If you don't have any Marriott Rewards Points you can get close to amount required to redeem for the tickets by grabbing some credit cards! 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 to top off your account. Currently the card comes with a 50,000 point sign up bonus when you spend $1,500 on the card and then you could also grab The Starwood Preferred Guest Business Credit Card from American Express as it also has 50,000 point sign up bonus and then you would ultimately be able to have 100,000 points not including what is earned on spending. Of course timing of getting the card(s) 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 for an itinerary? You could choose to get one SPG card for yourself and one for your partner or spouse.
