So get the business class to PRG or BCN for around £350 with a stop in ZRH / GVA depends. 10000 miles for 350 quids is quite a lot .

Since some enterprising folks are fit at selling discount codes on ebay, LH joined the fray and is offering 40€ off vouchers for 10€ on Groupon.de

I would jump on that- have seen many groupon offers in Italy, however nothing for LH yet- will post if that changes.

do not quite understand that you have to book the flight by 30MAR12 when validity of the voucher is until 22NOV12

I see it like that:

You can use the voucher if you buy your ticket between 11MAR - 30MAR12 for flights that depart before or including 22NOV12.

The 22NOV12 could also be the last day of the return leg and its departure date, but I let you guys figure that out. I am UK based, so no voucher for me...

There are some mixups here. In german it actually says:

- Use voucher FROM 11 MAR 2012
- Voucher valid UNTIL 22 NOV 2012
- Fly by 30 MAR 2013

Thanks sperrgepaeck.

I am sure it is as you say but I would not be very thrilled with a 30 euro discount for a ticket for Nov., that I have to pay now.
Different story if it is to fly soon.

Which should make these vouchers quite easy to use, even if you have no fixed plans yet. Unless of course - like me - you live in a country where pretty much any LH promo is significantly cheaper than those same destinations from Germany

Be careful with these vouchers if you are likely to have to change your flight: since the fare portion will be reduced, when you rebook and the booking class gets changed, you will end up paying for the value of the voucher.

The SWISS Valentine Vouchers, in contrast, were listed as part of the payment...

Discount summer fares in business class on LH's Dutch and Belgian sites (€1499 to New York, €1799 to Singapore, etc). No - zero - mileage credit though. Cheeky considering you're not flying for free either.

Where did you get the information about these tickets not crediting any miles?

These tickets book into Z class which will give you 200% miles (+ Exec bonus).

It's all rather confusing, because it shows "0 miles" when selecting flights but then one step further on, all flights show up in Z-class. When using the mileage calculator in that step, it does calculate at 200 percent.
