Further to my post yesterday, I can confirm that in order to benefit from 15,000 bonus M&M points (when you subscribe to the international NY Times for as little as €111), you only need to take out a six month subscription.
I have spoken to both Miles&More and the international NY Times help desk, who have confirmed that the term stating that a 12 month subscription is required is in fact a typo.
It’s important to remember with this offer that even where you take the €111 Thailand delivery option, you should still get full digital access. So there’s value for your €111 beyond simply some cheap M&M points.
[Update: see comments for a legitimate Thailand address for all]
