DEAL: Europe Business Class Awards 28,000 Miles Roundtrip!

Lufthansa offers a promotion called Mileage Bargains but I’ve never seen anything from them this good – legitimate 75% off redemptions flying business class (and other classes of service) on their long haul leisure carrier Eurowings Discover.

  • 15,000 miles roundtrip in economy between the US and Europe plus taxes and surcharges
  • 20,000 miles roundtrip in premium economy between the US and Europe plus taxes and surcharges
  • 28,000 miles roundtrip in business class between the US and Europe plus taxes and surcharges

Eurowings Discover is their lower cost leisure carrier but their Airbus A330 widebodies still do have flat business class seats. Book by December 31 for 2022 travel:

  • Fort Myers – Frankfurt, March 28, 2022 through end of schedule
  • Las Vegas – Frankfurt, March 28, 2022 and to Munich starting March 27, 2022 through end of schedule
  • Salt lake City – Frankfurt, May 23, 2022 through end of schedule
  • Tampa – Frankfurt, now through end of schedule

The problem is how to get Lufthansa’s miles since they generally stopped allowing transfers into their program two years ago as an odd consequence of German law. (Somehow Radisson points still transfer, but the conversion rate is poor.)

This is a huge win for those in the U.S. who have Lufthansa miles, such as via their Barclays-issued credit card.

  1. It appears that the routing must originate in Germany for these deals. At least that’s what is hard coded in on the link provided.

  2. Marriott miles don’t transfer quickly or reliably enough, especially at this time of year given manual human intervention needed

  3. I had 49,000 orphaned Lufthansa miles last year from a Barclay’s card signup that I had to use somewhere.. New activity doesn’t extend their expiration, and the only way I could find was to convert to Wal-Mart gift cards at 1/3 of a cent each. There’s literally no way to add or transfer in to your balance outside of flying Lufthansa and crediting the miles there. You can’t even purchase Lufthansa miles. They used to have a pretty good deal at 17.5K for one-way domestic United F trips, but that’s now gone. One could make a case that these are some of the most difficult/least friendly miles to own of all the non-low-cost international airlines.

    No, it’s not – what you need to do is just open up the “filters” tab on the right side of the landing page, and you’ll be able to select “from” a different country than Germany.

  5. @ Gary — 50,000 miles for $695 (including international wire fees) FAZ subscription just posted. I think this is a great deal if you want LH miles. This is especially great for SEN and higher status, since you get better access to LH F award space and companion awards, limited only by the number of miles you have to use.
