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.

Awesome! I had been depressed that I was traveling and missed the MC offer, especially since it is time for my next churn.!
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.
FYI, the app is showing MasterCard, not VISA.
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!
Yes it is a MasterCard, rather spaced, sorry!
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?
@Geoff — Yes and yes.
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?
@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.
