As we do each month we bring you the latest set Miles & More “Meilenschnaeppchen”
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
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
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.
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
