As we do each month we bring you the latest set Miles & More “Meilenschnaeppchen”
or Mileage Bargain discounted
mileage awards. This month all offers are on Lufthansa for departures from Montreal n both Economy and
Business Class or Vancouver
in Economy Class. Simply book by September 30 for travel between January 1
and February 15.
With this offer you can redeem Miles & More miles for round trip
tickets on Lufthansa from Montreal to 67 destinations for
miles. This is nearly a 50% discount off the
normal award ticket price of 105,000 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 just some of the offers from Montreal this month:
You can also choose to redeem 30,000 miles for round-trip Economy Class flights out of Montreal to 67 destinations in Europe and 79 destinations from Vancouver. 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 135,000 points is
all it would take to get a business class flight or 75,000 points for economy class 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. Currently
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.
