500 Miles & More miles won’t get you a ticket in Lufthansa First Class, but they will get you a tiny bit closer.

My last review of Lufthansa First Class service, from Frankfurt to New York, is here – although you’ll need another 90,500 miles on top of these 500 free miles to redeem for that.

The best value Miles & More redemption for a UK resident is probably Business Class to the Middle East, which is just 70,000 miles return.  Remember that Avios wants 120,000 points for a similar UK to Middle East flight.

Full details of the 500 miles offer are on the Miles & More website here.

    Just wondered whether there was anything I can do with my 5500 points?

      Transfer to Heathrow rewards vouchers? Not sure on the minimum amount but it is a way to cash them out.

    • RussellH says:

      I have just 3800+ miles. Last time I looked they could be turned into an M+S gift card. Poor value, but much more use than a Heathrow voucher if one only goes there about every 18 months

        they have amazon gc too on the uk website. the selection of gift cards you can convert your mikes to varies by country.

        For a tenner gift card. That’s not bad at all. Just logged in now and found out my 1k miles just expired now I got less than 3k which is not enough for anything. 🙁

  • RussellH says:

    Why all this endless focus on apps, rather than a proper computer?

    My partner did have an IHG app on a tablet, and I did use it when Accelerate targets included using it. But I never felt safe using it for pre-paid bookings – far too easy to get the dates wrong and no way of checking. Absolutely awful.
    But maybe that was the point?

    • Crafty says:

      The point of encouraging your use of the app is to familiarise you with starting your journey within their “ecosystem”, rather than on Google where their clicks are payable.

    This was a worthwhile reminder. I still have 5k points from the Hilton promo a couple of years ago and the extra 500 allowed me to cash out for a £15 Google Play voucher. Better than expired miles!
