Much like Air France-KLM Flying Blue Promo Rewards, Lufthansa Miles & More has a regular promotion offering discounted reward redemptions for flights on Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Eurowings Discover, LOT Polish Airlines, Lufthansa, and SWISS.

Lufthansa has launched its newest Miles & More Mileage Bargains (Meilenschnäppchen) for July, and we’ll call the number of offerings “abundant” for lack of a better word.

Let’s take a look at the details!

Promotion Details

This month’s Miles & More Mileage Bargains comprises hundreds of deals on flights around the world. This includes an incredible 687 offers on flights from the U.S. to locations around Europe.

Discounts vary depending on your destination and fare class, and taxes can be quite high, but you’ll still find some great offers on business class redemptions. Keep in mind you must book these before July 31, 2024.

Business Class Deals

Hot Tip:

Check out the best ways to redeem Lufthansa Miles & More miles for maximum value!

Earning Lufthansa Miles

When looking purely at the mileage cost, there are some pretty incredible bargains when it comes to these flights. Unfortunately, earning Lufthansa miles can be difficult as Miles & More is not partnered with any transferable point currency, and the taxes and fees can be very expensive.

However, if you’re interested in taking advantage of these monthly promotions, you may want to consider signing up for the co-branded Lufthansa credit card. Issued by Barclays, the Miles & More® World Elite Mastercard® currently features a 50,000-mile welcome bonus offer after meeting the minimum spend. That’s almost enough for a round-trip business class flight with this promotion.

Final Thoughts

There’s no doubt that Lufthansa’s monthly Mileage Bargains can represent a great deal. At 55,000 miles round-trip for a transatlantic flight in business class, you won’t find a lower rate anywhere.

However, taxes are high, and earning Lufthansa miles isn’t as simple as transferring your points. Instead, you’ll want to grab the Lufthansa Miles & More card or take advantage of other methods to help build your balance. If you’ve got the required miles and can travel during the prescribed dates, these monthly offers present great value.
