Kind off disagree here.

However, the fare class associated with it is L but avaiability is based on B-class fare. That means that if there are B-class seats available you get two of them for an l-class fare.

In my case B-class fares from IAD-ZRH were 514 a pop, making it 1028 USD in total for TWO tickets, where the Mastercard 'Offer' was 1712 USD. Also for two tickets BUT the second persons would not collect miles AND had to fly the same segments at the same time.

So, I think this is really a good marketing plot!

The only reason for you to buy the offer would be if the restictions for a B-fare would not meet your travel needs and and L-fare would (but both have the Sunday rule in them, so what's really the benefit here)

These offers are based on expensive airfares so sometimes the savings are either a joke (tiny)or non existant.
