Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

It’s Lufthansa day! Free miles, cheap miles and 500 miles

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

I don’t write a post about Lufthansa‘s Miles & More programme for a while and then three mileage things come along at once!

Deal 1 – 1,000 free Miles & More miles from Sixt

Via this website, you are promised 1,000 Miles & More miles if you sign up to receive email newsletters from car hire group Sixt.

The small print says that the offer is targeted to those who were emailed about it.  This may be true, but in general these offers work for anyone who signs up (although don’t complain to Sixt if you don’t get them).

The website is in German but Google Chrome will translate it automatically if you get stuck.

Lufthansa A380

Deal 2 – 500 bonus Miles & More miles with Accor hotels

I wrote recently about a ‘triple miles’ offer that Avios was running with Accor.  This is the Miles & More version.

Set your Le Club Accorhotels account to automatically send your points to Miles & More, and you will receive 500 bonus miles on your next Novotel / Mercure / M Gallery / Sofitel / Ibis etc stay. 

Further details can be found on the Accor website here.  Your stay must be completed by 30th April.

There is a 1, 2 or 4 night minimum stay requirement depending on brand.

Deal 3 – 1,000 bonus miles for Miles & More travellers in Copenhagen!

OK.  This is a VERY niche deal.  However, it might provide a bit of amusement to pass the time if you are in Copenhagen airport during 2014.

As per this promotion, you will receive 1,000 Miles & More miles EVERY time you make a purchase in one of the Heinemann duty free shops in Copenhagen.  You are limited to one purchase per day, but you can claim it multiple times on different trips.

However, to try to stop you buying something very cheap, there are the following exclusions:

“Offer extends to entire product range, with the exception of duty-paid tobacco products, beverages in returnable bottles, magazines, newspapers and books”

I’m sure, for the dedicated Head for Points reader, a suitable low-value loophole could be found!

    i see it, but MBNA did not update their page yet.
    i would still do not consider it, UNLESS you have a big pot of expiring miles you want to keep and can not spend by due date.

    Salted Licorish? Can’t get much more Swedish…

    (ARN is the chepest ex-EU destination if you’re doing an ex-EU run to BKK…)

  • Stephan says:

    Are miles with miles and more worth it? I mean compared to avios I find the return I get from 10,000 more worth while than with Lufthansa.

    • Rob says:

      Fundamentally, no, its not worth it if you have the choice. However, if you have to fly Star Alliance for work then you need to put the miles somewhere! The ONLY good bits about Miles & More are the ability to book Lufty First Class (other Star partners cannot do this until 2 weeks before departure) and the monthly mileage sales, which are a decent deal.

  • Idrive says:

    You are right maybe Raffles can provide the technicalities but tax are higher if you compare it with Avios. I did jump in just because i did not want to loose my m&m bit decide. Also it depends on your travel patterns. The award chart is also worst than Avios you can check ot out on Lufthansa’s website or tomorrow i can give you more info.

    If you can’t / don”t want to pre-order, there are currently cans of Coca-cola or Fanta for 12 DKK.
    A bit pricey for a 330ml can, but still quite little for 1000 bonus miles.
