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 hereThis 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.

    OT: If I book a Hilton using points to part reduce the cash price does this still qualify as a cash stay, I’m particularly interested in would it trigger the10k points as this is my 5th stay and would it count towards stays for the year ?



    • It will trigger bonus and count towards stays for the year no matter if its cash or points

    • But to answer your question, yes, it’s considered a paid stay.

      In theory the only differences between paid and award nowadays, are that you can’t book paid stays for somebody else (in the proper way approved by Hilton), and that resort fees would be charged at the properties that have them.

      • I thought Hilton didn’t charge resort fees, has something changed? I certainly wasn’t charged them with my most recent such stay being last autumn.

  2. My hilton offer disappeared from my plat card, weird as I have spent £250 now, but maybe some of them didn’t count?

    • If it disappeared then it would seem that it did count? Or expired?

    • I’ve had offers disappear and reappear a number of times lately. Sometimes all of them go.

  3. Need some help on moving points.
    I moved enough Amex points for a 5 nights for 4 high end redemption for Hilton combined with OH’s points
    I have 79k left to move, and was going to move them to Kris flyer to start a balance for a middle East business flights redemption for bothof us, or start the balance for Europe to sin flight in business both of us….
    But I started to think of hotels and i was wondering what hfp readers think of moving to marriott? OH and I will both hopefully have the 33k from Amex spg by the end of the month,
    What are the sweet spot marriott redemptions? I know with the merger, it’s gone higher, but would love to know any ideas you have? Esp combines with 5 nights for 4, also a potentiality of moving OH Amex gold bonus to marriott.
    Up for anything that is valuable compared to cash price.


    Will be cancelling Amex Plat and Amex spg by the end of the month too and would love recommendations of what else I can or should take. Preferably without a fee.
    Amex ba card seems maybe ideal with 18k referral but only have 50k in avios so would need to build a balance first…
    Thanks a lot

    OT: Has anyone used the Amex lounge at the O2 recently, I see it’s now first come first served? Also, has anyone been after a show, staying at the IC so won’t be in a rush?

    O/T sorry if this is a frequent question .
    How long does a Tesco Clubcard to BA Exec Club Avios transfer take please?

  6. 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 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.
