US Air­ways has some very nice deals with its award chart if you hap­pen to be trav­el­ing dur­ing the right period. If you still haven’t planned your win­ter trips, you may want to con­sider a get­away to Europe or South Amer­ica. Either of these will cost only 35,000 miles round-trip in coach.  With the The US Airways Premier World MasterCard we can earn this miles after just the first purchase with the card. You could be flying for Free very fast with this card, which is why I highly recommend it!  Continue reading

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
