———————————————————————————-

In honor of today being one of the last days to get 50k bonus miles on the Lufthansa Premier Miles & More World MasterCard, for one lucky winner, I will book an award for up to two people 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 its current 50k mile sign up bonus for spending $5k in the first three months.

If you haven’t yet gotten the card, the 50k bonus mile offer’s stated expiration is nine days from now, December 15, 2013!

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. (If your trip is for more than two passengers or is several awards, I’ll give you a $250 discount on the price of the award booking.)

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:

  1. Comment on this post with what trip you have in mind. Here are some great uses of Lufthansa miles if you’re unsure. (Are you one of the people who receive one free daily email every morning with all of the day’s posts? Click the post title in the email and comment on the blog instead of replying to the email.)
  2. Retweet this tweet:

You can enter both ways.

I’ll pick a winner early Monday morning, email the winner, and get started booking your dream trip.

If you don’t win, we’re still standing by at the Award Booking Service, ready to book your award with Lufthansa miles.
