Miles & More Mileage Bargains - Only 55,000 miles required for roundtrip business class tickets between Montreal and Austria


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 out of Montreal only.

As we have advised over the past few months, Miles & More was boosting the standard Canada to Europe business class 105,000 miles requirement to 112,000 as of today (May 9). Up until now we weren't sure if they would still discount by only 50,000 miles which would mean you have to redeem 62,000 miles or if it would be some other amount. The great news is, at least for this month, they are keeping the discounted mileage rate at 55,000 miles! That means the discount is 57,000 miles or just over 50% of the old rate.

This month's offers:

Montreal
Austrian Airlines Business Class
Book by May 31 for travel until Jul 1, 19

With this month's offer you can redeem Miles & More miles for round trip business class tickets on Austrian Airlines or only 55,000 miles. This is just over a 50% discount off the normal award ticket price of 112,000 miles. 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 all of the Business Class offers this month:

Short on Miles & More miles? Your best bet is to convert Marriott Bonvoy 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. T

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 Marriott Bonvoy American Express Card to top off your account. Currently the card comes with a 60,000 point sign up bonus when you spend $1,500 on the card and then you could also grab the Marriott Bonvoy Business American Express Card as it also has a 60,000 point sign up bonus and then you would ultimately be able to have 120,000 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 Marriott card for yourself and one for your partner or spouse.
