As we do each month we bring you the latest set Miles & More “Meilenschnaeppchen”
or Mileage Bargain discounted
mileage awards. This month the offers are for flying out of Montreal only.
As we have advised over the past few months, Miles & More was boosting the standard Canada to Europe business class 105,000 miles
requirement to 112,000 as of today (May 9). Up until now we weren’t sure if they would still
discount by only 50,000 miles which would mean you have to redeem 62,000 miles or if it would be some other amount. The great news is, at least for this month, they are keeping the discounted mileage rate at 55,000 miles! That means the discount is 57,000 miles or just over 50% of the old rate.
This month’s offers:
Austrian Airlines Business Class
Book by May 31 for travel until Jul 1, 19
With this month’s offer you can redeem Miles & More miles for round trip
tickets on Austrian Airlines or
miles. This is just over a 50% discount off the
normal award ticket price of 112,000 miles. Remember however
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 all of the Business Class offers this month:
Short on Miles & More miles? Your best bet is to convert Marriott Bonvoy 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. T
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 Marriott Bonvoy American Express Card to top off your account. Currently
comes with a 60,000 point sign up bonus when you spend $1,500 on the card and then you could
also grab the Marriott Bonvoy Business American Express Card as it also has a 60,000 point sign up bonus and then you
would ultimately be able to have 120,000 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 Marriott card for yourself and one for your partner or spouse.
