The Definitive PAYBACK Thread
 
There have been many threads about earning Payback points. Since Payback points can be easily converted to Lufthansa Miles&More in 1:1 ratio, I'd like to start this thread, dedicated to Payback problematics.

Please post all Payback-related news here. Thanks and happy collecting :D

Hi all,

I just read ion ebay that it's not longer possible to transfer points between payback accounts. Also I haven't found anything on Payback on this topic.

"Bitte beachten Sie, dass Sie nur Ihre persnliche, gltige und aktuelle Miles & More Kartennummer fr die Umwandlung Ihrer PAYBACK Punkte angeben drfen. Anderenfalls werden Ihre PAYBACK Punkte automatisch auf Ihr Punktekonto zurckgebucht."

That means:

Lufthansa did not only make PAYBACK to stop transferring PUNKTE between their accounts,

but also transferring PUNKTE to other peoples MILES&MORE accounts.

Conclusion: Seems like if Lufthansa has stopped all possibilies of selling miles including the PAYBACK thing...

Or does anybody have an idea?

This rule was always there! Nothing new.

peter42 Aug 30, 04 7:15 am

Obviously LH can change Payback in any way they want as they own 50% of it...

double miles in August(?)
 
hi friends,

what about those 2x miles in august if you use at least 3 partners - as stated on the M&M site? There is no info on the payback site! anyone getting them? i got 5x during the promotion week, but back to normal these days.

In my opinion the payback site is very cautious around with the miles. One has to follow every transation closely, very tirying! :td:

I bought some things a herrenausstatter.de and mexx.com and never get the promised points (3 P per 1 EUR). I called them several times, but the points never show up in my payback account. I have given it up now and probably will not buy to collect points.

By the way, to me, it seems better to get the points in EUR (100 P = 1 EUR) than in miles. In my eyes, this is a better deal (if you live in Germany or have an German bank account).

well, ebay was a much better deal , cause you did get about 2 EUR per 100 points...
it all depends for what you can use your miles for: if you end up dumping them on buch.de for .3 cent a mile, dont change payback points into miles. If you have to book some Y,C.... tickets (cause you need to go somewhere on a weekday and return the next day.. or upgradable fares or like to travel to odd destinations like Lebanon or Eritrea where there is never any sale) you can definitively get more of your miles than 1 cent per mile..
Since Aug. 1st it ist clear that M&M doesnt really care about people who buy mostly cheap leasure fares that are competitive with LCCs anyway...

Opodo is 300 per booking. I made my hotelbookings last week for the rest of this year on Opodo and Expdia and each booking earned me 1500 Opodo / 1250 Expedia points.
Those points will be however blocked until I really paied my stay at the hotel otherwise they will cancel the points according to the cancelled bookings.

I never had problems not getting points with Payback. If you shop online you only need to make sure that you connect to the partnershop via the Payback website.
