For those of you who are members of Miles & More, let this serve as a reminder that the current 50% off award ticket redemptions promo for travel to a variety of European destinations ends on March 31.

Until then, members can enjoy booking Business Class  tickets for nearly 50% fewer miles than the normal rate.   For example, what would be 105,000 miles for a round trip Business Class ticket between Chicago and Amsterdam will only ‘cost’ 55,000 miles if booked by March 31.  Economy  Class redemptions are discounted 50%, with only 30,000 miles needed to book round trip travel instead of the normal 60,000 miles.

The discount award bookings are available for a wide range of European destinations and include redemptions in both Economy and Business Class.   The valid travel dates vary depending on specific city pairs with most requiring travel to be completed by early to mid April.   However, there are a few destinations including Barcelona, Helsinki and Ancona (and others) that allow travel to take place during July, the peak of the summer travel season to Europe.

If you find yourself short of miles for this particular opportunity, Miles & More is offering a promotion that is discounting the purchase of miles by 20% through the end of March.   You are allowed to purchase up to 12,000 miles per year for your account.

Additionally,  you may want to consider applying for the Premier Miles & More World MasterCard so that the next time Miles & More offers an attractive ‘sale’ you’ll be in position to take advantage of it.   With the current offer, new cardholders will earn 20,000 miles after an initial purchase and an additional 15,000 miles if a balance is transferred from another card.

Additional perks include a FREE companion ticket after an initial purchase with the card and on each card anniversary date thereafter and there are NO FOREIGN TRANSACTION FEES for using the card abroad.  You’ll earn 2 miles per dollar spent booking travel on a Miles & More partner airline and 1 mile per dollar spent on all other purchases.
