The Premier Miles & More® World MasterCard® is now offering 50,000 bonus Lufthansa miles after spending $5k in the first three months.
This limited time offer makes the Premier Miles & More® World MasterCard® one of the best credit cards on the market with enough bonus miles for a roundtrip award to Europe.
Lufthansa charges only 50,000 miles roundtrip for an economy award between the United States and Europe (for Americans starting the roundtrip in America) according to its award chart.
This is a fantastic deal for year round award travel to Europe since most airlines charge 60,000 miles for the same trip.
The only problem is that Lufthansa collects fuel surcharges on award tickets.
The good news is that fuel surcharges on LOT Polish Airlines are very small, so you can fly from the United States to Europe roundtrip on LOT for the cost of opening one credit card, meeting its minimum spending requirement, and paying only $160 out of pocket!
