40,000 Miles & More miles until 25 April!

Hi all

First a disclaimer: I am in no way financially involved, other than being a participant. I do not work for any affiliated company. Mods, please don't delete my post this time.

For the miles and points aficionados out there (and perhaps even those who aren't), there is a great offer at the moment on the SWISS Miles & More credit cards that will offer 40,000 if they receive 2,000 new applicants (or 20,000 if they get 1,000 applicants) by 25 April. The silver card, at 60.- is fantastic value considering that you can convert Coop Trophy cards at 34.90 a piece for a mere 2,000 miles. Since more of us will benefit if we can get more to sign up, my motivation is solely altruistic. Here is the link:

https://www.miles-and-more-cards.ch/en/miles-deal/
(at the time of posting, there were 1756 applications - not much further to go!)

And if you want to double-down, there's an offer from Cornercard as well which gives a 20,000 sign up bonus (and no annual fee in the first year):

A potential 60,000 miles for 60.- is EXCELLENT value. That's enough miles to get a business class special to North Amierca or even 4 round-trip tickets in Europe. Let's not forget that Miles & More introduced mileage pooling for families, too.

Even if you are not interested yourself, please pass on the word!

Thanks!

Do you know if there are any cancellation fees for the Cornèrcard deal if cancelling within the first year?

I thought about that too and from what I interpret in the AGBs, you can cancel 14 days after receiving the card.
I would use it a few times, wait for the miles to be credited and cancel it a few months after to be safe. I heard from a friend that they may revoke miles if you cancel right away and never use the card.

tatadada!

Big warning:

" La banque se réserve par ailleurs le droit d’annuler les Miles de prime offerts en guise de bonus de bienvenue si le contrat de carte est résilié par le titulaire de la carte moins de douze mois après l’émission de celle-ci."

Which translate into the bank reserve the rights to cancel the miles offered if the contract is cancelled by the card owner less than 12 months after it was given".

In other words, the first year free might give you nothing, and you have to pay the next year subscription of 140chf minimum, or they can cancel the miles.

Sad but true, what can you expect with banks?

PS: I can't find the trap for the "Swiss Miles & More", it's extremely complicated as they have separated Terms and Conditions and there's no clear "Offer terms" until you fill lot of data. I read these documents, it's not clearly saying you can't cancel and lose the miles: https://www.miles-and-more-cards.ch/...om-a-to-z/gtc/
