This card is available in the USA offered by Barclays Bank. Customers can earn 50,000 award miles after spending $3,000 in purchases and paying the annual fee, both within the first 90 days. Customers can also earn 2 award miles per $1 spent on ticket purchases directly from Miles & More integrated airline partners.
Customers can convert award miles earned on purchases into status miles. Once each calendar year, they can convert 5,000 to 25,000 award miles at a 5 to 1 ratio. For example, 5,000 award miles convert to 1,000 status miles and customers receive two complimentary Lufthansa Business Lounge Vouchers after each account anniversary.
Another advantage of this card is that customers can redeem miles for flight awards and upgrades on Lufthansa, Austrian Airlines, Brussels Airlines, SWISS, Star Alliance Airlines and other partners and there is no foreign transaction fees on international purchases. Upon the first use of the Card Account for a purchase, the primary cardmember will be eligible to receive a reduction valid for up to 15% off Hotels & Cars by Points
