Applying for the Card
Barclays Lufthansa Miles & More Card (scroll down to terms to see bonus)
Barclays will usually only approve you for a card every 6 months. If you have a Barclay card, is bet to put some spend on it before applying for another card. They don’t like dormant cardholders. There’s no real limit on the number of cards you can have with Barclay.
They also have a 6/24 rule. That means that they might not approve you if you’ve had more than 6 new cards in the last 24 months. I say might because we’re not sure if it still applies, and even before it was never really a hard rule.
This is the highest bonus we have seen, but this 60K offer that we saw last year was probably a better option, since it required less spending.
Lufthansa miles are valuable. While domestic economy ward flights will cost you 25,000 miles round trip, you can get into business class (domestic first class) for just 35,000 round trip on United. One-way award flights will cost half. That means that with this signup bonus is enough for two round trip business class flights in the United States.
A trip to Europe will cost you 50,000 miles in economy, but fees are extremely high. You can see their miles calculator here.
