JUST A QUICK REMINDER
I just wanted to remind you the LIMITED TIME offer from Barclay for the Lufthansa Premier Miles & More World Mastercard is ending on June 30, 2013. They are currently offering 50,000 bonus miles after a $5,000 minimum spend in 90 days. This is the best offer I have seen in a long time for this card.
Miles & More does charge high fuel surcharges on award tickets but not for domestic U.S. award tickets. So for U.S. residents the best use of these 50,000 miles is for two free domestic tickets (25,000 per ticket). So for families, if both husband and wife apply and are approved for this card, you would have 110,000 miles (10,000 from min. spend) which could be used for four (4) domestic tickets (U.S., Alaska & Canada). That a great start to paying for a family vacation!
Also the Lufthansa Premier Miles & More World Mastercard is it’s offered by Barclay. Many of the hot credit card bonus offers are from Chase and American Express; so this really helps those who have many applications with these other lenders. I just applied myself for this card and was delighted with the instant approval. I was expecting to call the reconsideration line as usual but since I have very few inquires on my Trans Union report that helps. Citibank, Chase, and American Express all check Experian in my part of California. Barclay on the other hand checks Trans Union for me.
Lastly, with this sign up bonus you will receive a companion ticket every year as a cardholder. Do note that the annual fee of $79 is not waived. Bummer!
So for families this card is a sweet deal! You are getting 100,000 miles ( 4 domestic tickets) for $158 ($79 annual fee x 2). You can’t buy 4 domestic tickets for $158 anywhere. Yes, you do have to spend $10,000 for a couple ($5,000 min. spend per card) but if you use the creative tools I use and have discussed in previous articles (read one here or email me for help), this is very doable. It’s really all about creative spending that’s not really spending. Then also just paying all your bills with your credit card even your mortgage using the American Express Bluebird. You can also review my extensive list of ways to meet you minimum spend here.
So if you are a family wanting to plan a nice vacation later this year or next, grab this card (one for you and your spouse) and you are on your way to a “almost” FREE vacation! If you need some free hotel nights, you could take a look at the Hilton cards (40,000 points or 2 free nights), Club Carlson Visa for 85,000 points and the Marriott Premier card.
