As we do each month we bring you the latest set Miles & More “Meilenschnaeppchen”
or Mileage Bargain discounted
mileage awards. This month we see a reduction of offers as we only have Austrian Airlines out of Montreal in Economy Class.
Austrian Airlines Economy Class
50% off flights between Montreal and Austria
Book by December 31 for travel between April 29 and May 31, 2019
With this offer you can redeem Miles & More miles for round trip economy class
tickets on Austrian Airlines from Montreal to 6 cities in Austria also for only 30,000 miles. This is a 50% discount off the
normal award ticket price of 60,000 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.
Here are the six cities you can choose from:
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. Remember you can also convert to Marriott (then to M&M) from any American Express card that has Membership Rewards or Membership Rewards Select options. (Think Gold Rewards Card, Platinum, Cobalt etc.)
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.
