This Lufthansa branded card offers a generous sign-up bonus and great value for U.S. based travelers to Europe.
Review of the Miles & More World Elite MasterCard
The Miles & More World Elite MasterCard offers 2X miles on flights purchased from Lufthansa and its partner airlines and 1X on everything else
20,000 miles earned for initial purchase and an additional 30,000 miles earned after you spend $5,000 within the first 90 days. Plus, earn 2 complimentary Lufthansa Business Lounge Vouchers annually
Although it has a $89 annual fee, the bonus miles and lounge vouchers make up for it.
Achieve Miles & More status faster by converting award miles to status miles at a 5:1 ratio.
Frequent European travelers will appreciate that miles can be redeemed for awards and upgrades on Lufthansa plus any of its partner airlines including Air Canada, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, SWISS, Star Alliance Airlines, Turkish Airlines, United and others.
The Bottom Line
Although it doesn't offer the best return on everyday spending, this card is great when used as a supplemental card to earn an annual companion ticket for trips to Europe.
