Limited Time Offer! 50,000 Miles for Lufthansa Miles & More World MasterCard: Enough for Free Flights to Europe, Hawaii or Other Top Destinations

By Guillermo Rodriguez (Award Travel Points)

Ear­lier this year, the Bar­clays Lufthansa Premier Wold MasterCard offered a 50,000 mile sign-up bonus for a lim­ited time and this was an extremely pop­u­lar card. Then it went down to just 30,000 miles. But now the 50,000 mile offer is back!  (Though the offer can be dis­con­tin­ued at any time), The card comes with 20,000 bonus miles after the first pur­chase and an addi­tional 30,000 bonus miles after spend­ing $5,000 within 3 months of account opening. If you think it might be difficult to complete the spending requirement in 3 months, see my different ways to accomplish this.

We haven’t signed up for this card yet since just a couple months ago I signed up for the Bar­clay­card Arrival World Mas­ter­card, a solid choice of $440 of travel credit for just $1,000 spend­ing.  However before this year ends I am  def­i­nitely going to apply for the 50,000 mile Lufthansa offer from Bar­clays to earn more free flights.

50,000 Lufthansa Miles is enough to reach many des­ti­na­tions imme­di­ately so this is a great card to consider. Continue reading
