Link: The Lufthansa Premier Miles & More World MasterCard®
Just a quick reminder that today is supposedly the last day for the 50,000 mile sign-up bonus on the Lufthansa Premier Miles & More World MasterCard. The card offers 20,000 miles after the first purchase and an additional 30,000 miles after spending $5,000 within 90 days. There’s also a $79 annual fee on the card, which isn’t waived for the first year.
As I discussed in this post, the best uses of Lufthansa miles are for travel in Lufthansa first class (which is blocked to partner airlines until 15 days before departure) and Swiss first class (which is entirely blocked to partner airlines), as well as for travel in United domestic first and business class, where they charge just 17,000 miles per direction.
Chances are the sign-up bonus will go back to 20,000 miles tomorrow, so if you’ve been eying the card this is definitely the time to apply. One great thing about the card is that it’s issued by Barclays, as you can generally earn the bonuses on their cards multiple times.
