Lufthansa Miles & More World Elite Mastercard, 50K Miles Bonus with $5K Spend

The Lufthansa Miles & More card has an increased bonus that can earn you an extra 15,000 miles compared to the regular bonus. Let’s take a look.

The Offer

Earn 20,000 award miles after your first purchase and payment of the annual fee, then an additional 30,000 award miles after you spend $5,000 on purchases in the first 90 days

Card Benefits

  • Earn 2 award miles per $1 spent on ticket purchases directly from Miles & More integrated airline partners
  • Earn 1 award miles per $1 spent on all other purchases
  • Receive two complimentary Lufthansa Business Lounge Vouchers after each account anniversary
  • Receive a Companion Ticket after each account anniversary (taxes and fee apply)
  • No foreign transaction fees
  • Annual Fee: $89 (waived for Senator and HON Circle Members)

This is a better bonus than the regular 35,000 miles bonus on this card, but it does require a lot of spending in order to receive the last 30,000 miles.

Lufthansa miles are valuable. While domestic economy ward flights will cost you 25,000 miles round trip, you can get into business class (domestic first class) for just 35,000 round trip on United. One-way award flights will cost half. That means that with this signup bonus is enough for three business class flights in the United States.

A trip to Europe will cost you 50,000 miles in economy, but fees are extremely high.

You can see their miles calculator here.


This increased bonus could be useful to many people, and there’s more uses for the miles than the short recap above. I don’t see an expiration date for this offer, but if you’re interested, you should apply sooner than later.

  1. Currently have the old Miles and More Wold Mastercard; am I eligible for the signup bonus on this since it is a World Elite MasterCard?

  2. This offer is available to new cardmembers only. To avoid expiration is must use the card every month or with in each statement every month. Once missed to use the card one of the month then will set ( flag up) expire next 18 months. Book award is very expensive on Lufthansa , Swiss Airlines , Austrian Airlines Airport tax and fees could end up around $ 450.00 each one way ticket all trans atlantic routes. Once booked reward ticket difficult assign seats. I would not recommend anyone.
