Application Link: The Lufthansa Premier Miles & More World MasterCard


I just got an email from Barclaycard with the subject “Earn bonus award miles in three easy ways!”

The email gave me three new 3x category bonuses for my Lufthansa Premier Miles & More World MasterCard® for January 1 – March 31, 2014.

The email explained that after activating the promotion by January 20, 2014, I’d earn 2 bonus miles per dollar for grocery store purchases, movie theater purchases, and utility payments from January 1 – March 31, 2014 up to a total of 2,500 bonus miles.

I already earn 1 mile per dollar at all those places, so this promotion bumps me to 3 miles per dollar for my first $1,250 in spending.

To activate, I clicked the Activate Now button in the email and checked a box on the next web page.

I received immediate confirmation of my enrollment on the web page, then an email a few minutes later.

Other Barclaycard Offers

All three previous offers on Barclaycards are better, but it’s just nice to get a new promo!

My Plan

I will spend $1,250 at grocery stores in the first quarter of 2014 to get my full 2,500 bonus miles. A 3x return at grocery stores is solid. It’s not as good as the 6% cash back at grocery stores on the Blue Cash Preferred® Card from American Express, but I don’t have that card yet.


I assume this offer was targeted and some cardholders will get different bonus categories and possibly different bonus amounts. Please share your bonus offer in the comments.

  1. I just received Barclay US Master Card offer identical to your Lufthansa offer, however with 5 bonus miles over & above the 1 mile I would normally earn.

  2. My husband got the exact same promotion as above. I didn’t get anything.
    How to qualify for the promotion is a mystery to me. We each applied for a Barclay Lufthansa card during their promotion in June. We each earned the sign-up bonus the same month. The continuing spend has been about equal. I can’t see any obvious differences between our use of the cards or credit scores. Could be just luck of the draw.

  3. The best way to take advantage of that promotion from Barclaycard is to buy reload cards or Visa gift cards at grocery stores.

  4. I got miles & more 5x bonus. Same categories. Same total miles. So, I only have to spend $500 to get them, but still can only get 2500 total bonus.
