There was an update in the terms and conditions that many people overlooked for the Luxair Miles and More Mastercard Gold. From 1/1/2021 you only get 1M/2€!
This is cut by 50%!!! We thought it would be only starting with the new Luxair Miles and More Visa Platinum card, which was already posted few days ago, here, but unfortunately not.
So lets recap if you are new in this field, compare Luxair BCEE with AMEX Premium Brussels Airlines:
BCEE Luxair MM Visa Platinum (former Mastercard Gold)
110€/year fee if you hold BCEE Zebra Premium account
5.000M welcome bonus
10.000M if you spend 20.000€/year – 1M/2€!
American Express Premium Brussels Airlines
75€ fee (first 6 months are free, usually 150€/year) //update: noe the first 3 months are waived
6.000M welcome bonus
20.000M if you have been refered (link) if you spend 1500€ within the first 3 months!
30.000M if you spend 20.000€/year – 3M/2€!
10.000M yearly bonus if you have spent >= 20.000€/year
AMEX is generally being accepted more and more, also in Luxembourg.
What do you do now? Stay with BCEE Luxair or maybe switch to AMEX Premium BA or even get the 2 cards until you have used up your miles accumulated with the BCEE Luxair card?
edit: updated increased referal miles
