Each month, Miles & More creates a large inventory of deeply discounted award travel for members and consolidates them on their Meilenschnäppchen website.   For those of you with a bit of flexibility and not picky about destinations, you can find some great deals with this program.

The attractive part of the Meilenschnäppchen program is the fact that you can save upwards of 50% of your valuable miles.  For example, a typical Business Class award booking between the USA and Europe will cost 105,000 miles.   Under a Meilenschnäppchen offer, the rate comes down to 55,000 miles.   For an economy ticket that normal takes 60,000 miles, you can book a ticket for only 30,000 miles.   

Most of the June offers require that you book travel by June 30 and that travel takes place in October.  Just remember that as the month goes on, the deals will start to disappear as Lufthansa limits the amount of these deeply discounted deals.   However, there are literally 100’s of possibilities still available!

If you find yourself short of miles, you may want to consider applying for the Barclay Premier Miles & More World MasterCard.   Currently there is a special promo taking place until the end of June that will award new accounts up to 50,000 miles (20,000 after first use, and 30,000 more after spending $5,000 on the card during the account’s first 90 days).    With this current deal, you would have enough miles for a Business Class ticket fairly quickly!
