This post has a full analysis and guide to booking Mileage Bargains.

Given the enormous range of departure points and destinations, it’s quite hard to give comprehensive examples of available bargains, but some stand-out offers currently available from the UK and USA (and bear in mind you can choose global departure points) include:

December’s Lufthansa “Mileage Bargains” are here – half price redemption flights with Lufthansa

Lufthansa has just released its list of December Mileage Bargains, allowing you to redeem your Miles&More miles for Lufthansa redemption flights at half price (or almost half price, or sometimes better than half price).

Mileage Bargains, or meilenschnaeppchen, as the Germans call it (a word that can only properly be said with a thick German accent, in a slightly aggressive manner) are an excellent way to use your accumulated Miles&More points (as explained in further detail below). While the Lufthansa website can also often be a bit clunky, the Mileage Bargains operation is relatively slick and user-friendly. You pick your starting point (although it should geolocate to wherever you’re searching from), and the list of available destinations and the mileage price will pop up instantly – you then just click through to book (see our walk-through of the process below).

“Set your own price” for Lufthansa Premium Economy upgrades

Lufthansa have joined the ranks of airline allowing customers to bid for upgrades, by launching a new, mildly misrepresented, offer called “myOffer” (a name which I’m sure took handsomely paid German executives several weeks to come up with)

The offer is confidently billed in the press release as “setting your own price” for an upgrade from Economy to its new Premium Economy, and is available for all Premium Economy Class destinations. However, as you’ve probably guessed, you can set your own price, but that’s no guarantee you’ll actually get the upgrade.

Earning Lufthansa Miles&More miles – outside of Star Alliance flights

We recently reminded you of some great value reward flights with Lufthansa, using their frequent flyer scheme, Miles&More.

miles and more star alliance

One of the key issues with Miles&More, as noted in the linked article, is that they are not particularly easy to earn. That means getting a stash to take you to meaningful redemption levels is not straightforward.

Help is at hand, however. Lufthansa is a member of Star Alliance, and while it’s common knowledge that you can earn Miles&More miles with all other Star Alliance members, you can also earn Miles&More miles on flights with a handful of non-Star Alliance airlines, as follows: (more…)

Lufthansa – half price reward flights to the US, Asia and more

On the face of it, Miles&More is a pretty poor frequent flyer scheme. The miles are relatively difficult to earn, and the tax on redemptions is punitive. So, for value travel, special offers on Lufthansa’s redemptions are essential.

Every month, your knight in shining armour on this point is called meilenschnaeppchen (or “mileage bargains”).

This is Lufthansa’s regular promotion on redemption of Miles&More miles, which generally offers approximately 50% off the miles needed for redemption flights. Crucially, these aren’t just tempter offers with no substance: we have checked and confirmed wide availability, and have given screenshot examples of available heavily discounted reward flights below.

250 free Miles&More Miles (Lufthansa etc)

Miles&More and Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG) have teamed up to offer an easy 250 miles.

Simply download the IHG app to your phone, and register your details using your Miles&More number and you’ll be credited the miles.

To be clear, this applies to new and existing members of either reward programme (IHG Rewards and Miles&More).  (more…)

Lufthansa sale – 1 million discounted tickets between Germany and Europe

A Lufthansa sale launched today which, in the good old German way, is rather literally entitled “1 Million extra tickets to Europe”. It’s called this because, as you may have picked up, Lufthansa is offering 1 million extra tickets to Europe, at a substantial discount.

In addition to repainting eight of their planes with “Fanhansa” livery (NB the German sense of humour is not world-renowned), one of Lufthansa airlines’ offerings is a limited edition World Cup amenity kit (for those not familiar with airline speak, “amenity kits” are the toiletries etc bag you’re given on an aeroplane – see picture above – and are often very popular collector’s items).

The competition will close at 11:59:59pm Malta time on Friday 13 June, and the winner will be notified by email (you do not need to leave your email address in the comment section, it will be privately shown to me when you leave your comment).
