The Lufthansa 50,000 Miles&More offer is back!! (Expired)

Some time ago, Barclaycards released the Lufthansa Premier Miles & More® World MasterCard®. Well, great news! It’s back for another session. You can now get up to 50,000 miles 35,000 miles for spending a mere $5,000 within the first 3 months. This card has a lot of value in my opinion, because you can redeem them for TWO Round Trip tickets on United Airlines domestically.  However, you can also use the miles to fly to Europe on Lufthansa, or any Star Alliance carriers for a mere 50,000 miles ROUND-TRIP! Just look at the map below and you can get an idea of how much it costs to go where with these miles. If you do not have a Miles&More account, open one up for FREE .

  • Earn 20,000 award miles after your first purchase or balance transfer
  • Earn an additional 30,000 award miles when you spend $5,000 in purchases within the first 90 days of account opening
  • Earn 2 award miles per $1 on ticket purchases directly from Miles & More integrated airline partners and 1 mile per $1 on all other purchases
  • Cardholders receive a companion ticket after first use of the account and annually after each account anniversary
  • No foreign transaction fees on purchases made outside the U.S.
  • Redeem miles for flight awards and upgrades on Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, SWISS, Star Alliance member airlines and other partners
  • $79 Annual Fee.

There’s some hidden beauty in this deal because I get a lot of questions from friends on how to get free airfare to Hawaii. Well, this could very well give you airfare to Hawaii for $79 (annual fee charge). I think that’s pretty darn good.

Secondly, Miles&More members get better availability for award seats on Lufthansa, than it’s partners like United. You can easily redeem your miles for an award ticket to Europe without the headaches of trying to redeem United miles to fly Lufthansa or Austrian Airlines to Europe.

Sometimes, they offer Mileage Bargain redemptions, which reduces the cost of award travel to 30,000 miles for coach travel to Europe and 55,000 miles in business class, round-trip to Europe. I think that’s another great feature of having the card.

Summary

The Lufthansa Miles&More Mastercard is great travel rewards card to get, if you want two free domestic tickets.  The value in redeeming 50,000 miles covers the cost of the annual-fee no problem.  There are great reward options to be had, such as round trip to Europe for 50,000 miles. The miles can be easily redeemed for flights on Lufthansa and other Star Alliance carriers.

(expired) Lufthansa 50,000 miles offer is back!!!!

Barclays is once again offering the Lufthansa Miles&More Mastercard® with a 50,000 miles sign-up bonus! They had this offer earlier in the year, and it was very popular, as the normal offer is only 20,000 miles.  However, with 50,000 Lufthansa miles, you can fly on United or US Airways to anywhere in the U.S. Of course if you have Lufthansa miles, this will only help you get closer to that first class seat with them, as currently, they only offer those to their members of their own program.  You can also use those miles to fly round trip to Europe, on Lufthansa, or any of it’s Star Alliance partners.  The card itself is a great card with excellent benefits (see below).  Remember, you can redeem these miles on United Airlines and US Airways for domestic travel.

(EXPIRED) Lufthansa Miles & More 50,000 bonus miles!!

Lufthansa has finally joined the band wagon of offering 50,000 bonus award miles on their Miles & More World Mastercard by Barclays.  This is actually a great offer and let me tell you why.

First, this equals two round trip tickets on United Airlines and US Airways, which the miles can be redeemed for.  United Airlines & USAIR are Star Alliance members, and Lufthansa is in the brotherhood.  Secondly, there are NO FUEL surcharges when redeeming for domestic tickets. Third, this card is offered by Barclays bank, which pulls from Trans-Union, and if you have little inquiries from them, this will help you get approved.  I do recommend a high credit score though, to receive this, however, you can still get the full 50,000 miles even if you are approved for the lesser platinum card, instead of the World MasterCard. In the past, Barclays use to screw you over by giving you the lesser card AND the lesser bonus, but not this time!

Okay, here are the details to get this 50,000 bonus miles.  You need to spend $5,000 within 3 months (very much possible and I can show you how).  You earn 20,000 miles after your FIRST purchase (can be anything….even a Twix bar at Fred Meyer or something)……….and you get the remaining 30,000 miles after spending $5,000 total in 3 months.  There is a $79 annual- fee but you are getting basically TWO FREE round-trip flights, so this really pays for itself and then some.  50,000 miles on Lufthansa will get you a head start in redeeming for those hard to get first class seats on Lufthansa and Swiss Air, which are not available to partner airlines anymore.  However, there are fuel surcharges when redeeming for international flights, so keep that in mind if that is your goal. Budget your trip(s) accordingly.  If you have questions, please comment or email me and I will be glad to help you out!!  I am personally getting this, as I do see value in it.  It gives me greater flexibility for redeeming flights on United Airlines, as I have already gotten the United Mileage PLUS VISA card, which gave me 50,0000 miles.  Holiday travel is expensive, and these miles will come in handy!!  You may use the link below, or click on the image above.

  • Earn up to an additional 15,000 award miles when you when you complete an initial balance transfer
