Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

How to get 40,000 Lufthansa Miles & More miles for €586

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

This is not an incredibly cheap deal, but you need to remember that you can’t buy Miles & More miles.  If you want to top up your account, you are reliant on a transfer from a hotel programme.

Via American Express Membership Rewards, the best route – which still isn’t great – is via Marriott Bonvoy.  1,000 Amex = 1,500 Marriott = 500 Miles & More.

Miles and More FAZ offer

Here’s the offer:

For €586, you can buy a digital subscription to Germany newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.  The link is here.  This comes with 40,000 Miles & More miles.

You are paying 1.25p per mile.  This is not cheap but if you have a firm plan for the miles it might make sense.

    O/T I just got 1 avios on my Iberia Plus account as Avios Award Prueba (Shopping). This would suggest some kind of test. Anyone else?

    • Shoestring says:

      was that the shop? Prueba is unknown to me as a shop! means trial

      Ebay.es also can give you points to renew the expiry date

    Can we subscribe twice to the German mag? I need around 80K for a First LU redemption… I read something about waiting 6 months but translation is not so accurate. tkx.
