Even by today’s standards, the bonus offers with the Lufthansa Miles and More MasterCard are generous. You barely have to do anything, for example, to quickly earn 20,000 bonus miles with the airline attached to this credit card.
Cardholders will receive what Lufthansa calls a “welcome bonus” of 20,000 miles after they make their first purchase with their Lufthansa Miles and More MasterCard. These free miles will be automatically credited to your existing Miles and More account with the airline.
You will earn an additional 15,000 bonus miles if you transfer the balance from another credit card to your Lufthansa Miles and More card within 30 days of activating your account. These points, too, will be automatically credited to your Miles and More account.
To sweeten the deal, this card also sends you a free companion airline ticket every year in which you renew your account.
The card’s rewards program is a fairly standard two-tiered system. You’ll earn two miles for every dollar that you charge on ticket purchases with Miles and More partners. You’ll receive one mile for every dollar that you charge for all other purchases.
There is one catch, though: This card is not free. It comes with a $79 annual fee. But that fee, in part, is what allows the card to come with such a generous bonus-miles offering.
