Lufthansa MasterCard 50,000 Point Signup Bonus Still Works

While my link is no longer functional for it, Lufthansa’s Miles&More 50,000 point credit card signup offer is still available.

I wrote about the strategic uses of the card one week ago — United domestic first class and access to better first class award space on Lufthansa than is offered to their partners.

  1. Awesome! I had been depressed that I was traveling and missed the MC offer, especially since it is time for my next churn.!

  2. Kudos Gary. I am one of those who hate the incessant credit card shilling but I have to commend you for the post while other bloggers conveniently forgot to mention it once their affiliate link died.

  3. Approved x 2 for me and SO. Maybe we can get one last LX F one-way booked before it is too late (guess that means we need to spend $10k real quick!), Thanks, again!

  4. Does the United space need to be coded dark blue for use of these miles for US coach(17500) or business(35k)?
    If so, we then call M&M to book?

  5. I recently read you must use the card monthly to ensure your points don’t expire. Not a huge deal as it could be a small charge but if you are not planning on flying within the year, it is worth making a monthly charge to keep from losing these points. Or am I misreading something?

  6. @Cynthia Yes, they expire after 3 years, unless you use your card EVERY billing period. Not every month, but every billing period. Miss even one and your miles are toast after 3 years.

    But considering recent devaluations, 3 years is a long time to sit on a pile of miles anyway.
