Best way to top up Miles and More miles
I want to make use of the Miles and More mileage bargains, specifically a business class redemption for 55k return Europe – USA. I currently have 46k in my M&M account and 20k of those are due to expire in June since my M&M credit card got scrapped.
I have a UK based Amex Platinum card with around 70k in reward points. As far as I’m aware, transferring via Marriott/SPG will be at a rate of 3.3:1, which isn’t great.
Is there any other way to get the additional 9k Miles and More miles I’ll need in the next month?
Thank you for your help!
You can’t buy Miles & More miles directly anymore, but you could buy IHG or Marriott points and then transfer those over. You’d want to do the math on that though.
I believe you can also pool miles with another person, if you have a friend or family member who also has a few points expiring.
