  • Earn 20,000 award miles after your first purchase or balance transfer
  • Earn up to 15,000 award miles with balance transfers (1 mile per $1 transferred) within 30 days of account opening
  • Earn 2 award miles per $1 on ticket purchases directly from Miles & More integrated airline partners

  • $79 Annual Fee, waived for SEN and HON Circle Members

———————————————————

Update: Some of the comments belie a little confusion. As the post says, I’ll book the winner an award with YOUR Lufthansa miles, not mine.

In honor of the return of 50k bonus miles on the Lufthansa Premier Miles & More World MasterCard, for one lucky winner, I will book an award for the winner and as many travel companions as the winner has with their Lufthansa miles!

I know a lot of us have 55k+ Lufthansa miles sitting in our Miles & More accounts from getting the Lufthansa Premier Miles & More World MasterCard during a previous 50k promotion, and I’m sure a ton of folks who are new to the game just got the card this week.

Lufthansa miles aren’t particularly hard to use. I’ve written some Anatomy of an Award posts to explain for everyone’s benefit the exact process of converting Lufthansa miles to dream trips:

For the winner I’ll do even more. I’ll personally give you the full MileValue Award Booking Service treatment for a booking with your Lufthansa miles.

Entry is open to anyone with Lufthansa miles or who expects to have some in the next few months. Having The Lufthansa Premier Miles & More World MasterCard is not a requirement for entry. There are two ways to enter:

Free Giveaway Friday: $100 American Airlines Gift Card

MileValue really has the world’s best readers. Because of readers like you, I’ve been able to travel the last six weeks while “working” in places from Cambodia to Tampa.

As a thank you, I am giving away a $100 American Airlines virtual gift card.

I bought two such gift cards for myself on December 31, 2013 with my Business Platinum Card® from American Express OPEN, which now comes with 40,000 bonus Membership Rewards after you spend $5,000 in purchases on the Card within your first 3 months of Card Membership. The card also offers $200 in statement credits each calendar year to offset airline fees. Terms and restrictions apply.

Looking at this year’s travel schedule, though, I think someone else can use a $100 American Airlines gift card more than I can.

There are two ways to enter the drawing for the $100 gift card, and you can enter both ways to double your chances:

  1. Leave a comment on this post with how you’d use the gift card. (If you’re one of the thousands of people who have signed up to receive one free daily email every morning with all of the day’s posts, you’ll need to click this post’s headline to comment on MileValue.)
  2. Follow @MileValue on twitter and retweet this tweet.

Entry will close at 11:59 PM ET on Sunday March 30, 2014, and I’ll contact the winner afterwards.

Note: Gift Cards are redeemable toward the purchase of air travel wholly on flights operated by American Airlines, American Eagle® AmericanConnection® and oneworld® carriers for itineraries sold and originating in the U.S., Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands. Gift Cards may also be used for payment of air travel on any oneworld® partner or Codeshare flights designated in flight listings as AA*. They cannot be used for payment of air travel on any other airline. In addition if a credit card is used in conjunction with gift card(s), the credit card must have a United States, U.S. Virgin Islands or Puerto Rico billing address. Gift Cards may not be used for upgrades, Admirals Club memberships enrollments, Admirals Club One-Day passes, AAdvantage Award Travel or other non-flight products and/or services sold on AA.com.

Free Giveaway Friday: Pair of Admirals Club Passes for Your Next Trip

Reader Eli has generously donated two Admirals Club passes that expire March 31, 2014 to one lucky reader.

American Airlines operates Admirals Clubs in these locations. My favorite is at Honolulu International Airport, overlooking the garden, and stocked with slightly better food than usual since Japan Airlines uses the lounge for its premium passengers.

There are two ways to enter the drawing. On Sunday at 11:59 PM PT, I will select one winner. You can enter both ways to doubles your chances to win.

Way #1: Comment on this post with how you’d use the passes.

Way #2: Follow @milevalue on twitter and retweet this tweet.

https://twitter.com/MileValue/status/439394416541720576

If you don’t win, don’t forget that you can use your American Express Platinum card to access the Admirals Club, though this benefit ends March 22, 2014. And you can always use the Citi Executive AAdvantage card for lounge access.

Thanks for the lounge passes, Eli!
