Lufthansa Miles and More

Barclay is now offering a great offer for the Lufthansa Premier Miles & More World Mastercard.  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.  I think they are raising the bonus to 50,000 to start being more competitive with the other airline loyalty brands in the U.S and get our attention.  I have been waiting to get this card because I expected in time they would increase the bonus and they have.  So I’m all in!


Miles & More does charge fuel surchages on award tickets but not for domestic award tickets.  So this one card sign up basically gives you 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).  

The other great thing about the Lufthansa Premier Miles & More World Mastercard is it’s offered by Barclay.  So many of the hot credit card bonus offers are from Chase and American Express; so this will help those who have many applications with these other lenders but nothing with Barclay.  I myself only have two Barclay cards and the rest are with other lenders.

Lastly, they give you a companion ticket every year and the annual fee is only $79 (note: it is not waived – bummer!).  So for families, 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’ve got a nice start.  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

As always, if you need any advice or help, feel free to email me.  I’m always available for you!  Sorry I’ve been slow in responding this past month as I was traveling and enjoying the miles and points I’m always writing about.  I still pinch myself the amazing month our family spent in Europe all on miles and points.  So when I write about mile or point deals like this, you can know I’m doing them myself so our little family can afford to travel the world.  The dream can become a reality for you too!  Dream it!  Do the work!  Then live it!  It so worth it!  Miles and points aren’t what it’s about really.  They are the vehicle to take you where you want to go!  It’s all about the moments and memories we create that we cherish forever in our hearts (ooops sorry for getting all sappy….happens once in awhile)   😆
