Check your email this morning!
SWISS has launched a promo that will award double miles for segments flown between Switzerland and SWISS’ gateways in North America. The promo had been launched a few days ago, but not everyone got the email at the same time!
You must register for the promotion by July 31 by using the link provided in your email. I tried to recreate the link separately but I had no success. I think you must use the link in the email!
The promo applies ONLY to Economy Class bookings.
You will earn 2x the AWARD miles that you would normally earn for your specific fare class.
Flights must be operated by SWISS. There is an exception for Edelweiss LX8002 which flies between Zurich and Las Vegas.
Connecting flights do not count. Only the transatlantic segments of a larger itinerary will earn the bonus award miles.
Travel must take place between August 10 and December 10, 2015 in order to earn the bonus miles.
There is a limit of 8 segments (4 Roundtrips, etc.) that will earn the bonus.
Available to Miles & More members worldwide.
At this point I do not know if a promo will come later today for travel originating in the USA. The email that included this promo was intended for LX’s European market and arrived in my inbox at 9:45p Eastern, which means it will be waiting for Europeans when they wake up. Hopefully their will be an email waiting for US based LX passengers in the morning. However, even if you are US/North America based, you can take advantage of the promo if you have flights that will depart Switzerland for North America.
