If you have a Lufthansa / SWISS account, Miles & More – the Lufthansa, SWISS etc programme – gives you 500 bonus miles for downloading their app and logging in for the first time.
500 Miles & More miles won’t get you a ticket in Lufthansa First Class, but they will get you a tiny bit closer.
How to get the 500 bonus Miles & More miles
The offer is outlined on the Miles & More website here.
Open the App Store or Google Play, search for Miles & More and download the app:
Once downloaded, enter your login details and the 500 bonus miles will show immediately in your account. That’s it.
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 100,000 to 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.
