As we do each month we bring you the latest set Miles & More “Meilenschnaeppchen”
or Mileage Bargain discounted
mileage awards. This month we see offers from Lufthansa for departures from Montreal and with Austrian out of Toronto.
Lufthansa Economy and Business Class
Book by December 2 for travel between March 1 and April 15
Austrian Airlines Business Class
Book by December 2 for travel between November 2 and December 31
With this offer you can redeem Miles & More miles for round trip business class
tickets on Lufthansa from Montreal to 68 destinations for
miles and on Austrian from Toronto to 6 cities in Austria also for only 55,000 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 Business Class offers this month:
You can also choose to redeem 30,000 miles for round-trip Economy Class
flights out of Montreal to 74 destinations in 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 these 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
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.
