As we do each month we bring you the latest set Miles & More “Meilenschnaeppchen”
mileage awards! This month we see the continuation of economy class offers on LOT and something we haven’t seen in awhile, business class offers on Austrian!!
These are good for
travel on LOT until April 1 with bookings allowed until March 31 while Austrian is good for travel until March 31 and must be booked by Feb 28
You can redeem Miles & More miles for round trip economy class
LOT from Toronto to Poland for
miles. This is a 50% discount off the
normal Economy Class award ticket price of 60,000 miles and LOT does not
charge a lot for additional taxes and fees so this is an ideal
redemption to look at!
And for business class this month the options between Toronto and Austria on Austrian, the discount
is a bit below 50% as you need to redeem 55,000 miles for round trip
flights that normally cost 105,000 miles.
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?
usually mention in this post you can boost your Miles & More account
with the Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express. Currently
comes with a 20,000 Starpoints sign up bonus and when you
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. Of course timing of
getting the card now, spending and getting the points will likely not
happen for Austrian but could easily be done for the LOT flights. 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 for two tickets on LOT or one business class ticket on Austrian.
