The Miles & More® Premier World Mastercard® from Barclaycard is my most used credit card. Ever. Why? Well, simply because I love Lufthansa and I also have elite status with Miles & More which means that I have better access to Lufthansa First Class using miles and by redeeming through Miles & More, I can book Lufthansa First Class months in advance whereas if I wanted to book it using partner airlines’ miles, I would have to wait ~14 days before departure.
The Miles & More credit card already offers some great benefits such as:
- 20.000 Miles & More award miles sign-up bonus
- Sometimes a 50.000 award miles sign-up bonus (offered several times throughout the year)
- 0% Intro APR
- No Foreign Transaction Fees
- 2 miles per $1 USD spent with Miles & More integrated airline partners
- 1 mile per $1 USD spent everywhere else
- Annual Companion Ticket
- $79 USD annual fee waived for Senators and HON Circle Members
The card is my most used credit card AND I don’t have to pay an annual fee since I’m a Miles & More Senator. While I feel guilty sometimes for not using either my Chase Sapphire Preferred or American Express Premier Rewards Gold Card, Lufthansa miles are the most valuable to me – mainly because of Lufthansa First Class.
Anyway, yesterday I received the following email from Barclaycard regarding a promo on the Miles & More credit card:
Basically this is a promotion to earn more miles by using the card. So from 1 October to 31 December, I can earn 2 bonus award miles for every $1 spent on Gas stations, Restaurants, Department, Toy, and Game Stores. The cap is 2.500 bonus award miles. Activation is required by 20 October and eligible bonus miles will post 6 to 8 weeks after the promotion ends (so miles will post sometime in February 2016).
Obviously this is an awesome promotion and I will definitely max it out since I use the card for basically everything. Barclaycard had a similar promotion at the end of 2014/beginning of 2015 whereby you would receive 2 bonus miles for certain payments – however it wasn’t as generous as this one is.
At this point it appears that the offer is for select cardmembers and if you are selected, you should receive an email or letter in the mail about the promotion with instructions on how to activate the bonus. I mean who doesn’t love free extra Miles & More miles?!
