In the world of miles and points, having the right co-branded credit cards can be useful towards your travel and for this time Lufthansa’s Miles & More card is offering a welcome bonus.
80,000 Bonus Miles For Lufthansa Miles & More Credit Card
Through November 30, 2022, the Barclays Miles & More® World Elite Mastercard is offering an 80,000 bonus award miles after spending US$3,000 and paying the annual fee in full within 90 days of account opening.
Since this offer is from Barclays bank in the US, those who reside in the US with a valid social security number will be eligible for sign-up and of course will be subject to credit approval.
Barclays Lufthansa Miles & More Credit Card Benefits
While Lufthansa’s co-branded credit card in the US has a weaker existence compared to German banks, there are a couple of benefits when owning this card.
- Holders can earn 2 award miles per $1 spent on ticket purchases made directly from Miles & More integrated airline partners
- Earn 1 award mile per $1 spent on all other purchases
- Receive 2 complimentary Lufthansa Business Lounge Vouchers
- Receive a Companion Ticket after every account anniversary
- No Miles & More Mileage Expirations
This credit card has an $89 annual fee but the fees are waived for Miles & More Senator and HON Circle members as long as they retain their tiers.
A one-way Lufthansa first class from the US to Asia costs around 111,000 miles but be aware Lufthansa imposes a heavy fuel surcharge and taxes on award tickets. There are many ways to redeem Lufthansa’s first class award seats such as Aeroplan or LifeMiles but you’ll only be able to book them within 15 days before departure.
So the only benefit of earning miles on the Miles & More program is the ability to book Lufthansa or Swiss first more than 15 days before departure.
Lufthansa’s Miles & More co-branded credit card is offering a limited-time bonus when spending US$3,000 within 90 days of account opening. Though the perks and benefits of this card are weak since there are many great credit cards with much better benefits, the Miles & More card is great for those who heavily fly with the Lufthansa group.
