Amex MR 40% bonus to Avios, Lufthansa excited about Eurowings, Norwegian sets WiFi free, new United MileagePlus Prepaid card, Lifemiles 100% bonus when sharing miles

– American Express has not only improved the transfer ration to BA Avios to 1:1 but now offers a 40% bonus – an excellent deal if you have use for Avios in the next 12 months

– Lufthansa can’t contain their excitement about Eurowings growth – a success story nobody thought the airline could pull off 24 months ago

– Norwegian is planning free WiFi on their whole fleet – smart move and why exactly did they NOT install WiFi on their new planes?

United Mileage Plus and Netspend have teamed up for a new Prepaid card that earns miles when using the signature (or credit) transactions

– Lifemiles offers a 100% bonus again when sending miles to friends and family – with two accounts this is usually a great offer to buy miles at a good price

Make sure you already have a redemption in mind (or better yet on hold) before you starting buying.
