Smile New Mileage Promo & another early bookers promo

A new absolutely fantastic mileage promo just arrived in todays mail:

[Quote]
Mit unserer Aktion Europa erhalten sie 2000 zusätzliche Bonusmeilen, wenn Sie 2 mal in Europa hin und zurück vom 1. Oktober bis 15. Dezember mit SWISS oder Lufthansa fliegen.
[Unqote]

Translation:
You get 2'000 Bonusmiles for two return trips on LX or LH within Europe between Oct 1st and Dec 15th.

Really unfair that this is a targeted promotion because I'm sure everybody would want to jump to such an offer right away.

Yes, you can of course see it as a big 50% Bonus to the standard 4000 Miles you get in Y, but this "just ain't good enough".

Just for the record: Remember the earlybookers promo this spring? It gave you 40'000 Bonusmiles for 2 return trips in Europe or 20 times as much bonus and it wasn't even targetted.

At least we can keep on dreaming of the good old STC times, which really seem to be over already.

@LH: Try a bit harder. (Please)

***********
Update Sep 17:

Well, thank you, that was quick!

Another early bookers promo!

...you see, just asking politely gets you the promo you want. - We should do that more often, I think.

I got the same targetted promotion, but I have to fly 3 times to get 3000 Miles. A poor promotion IMHO compared with the Business/First Promo and the targetted "segments Promo" from Summer. These two Promos gave me a total of 340'000 Miles. Now I can earn 3000.

My Mother (STGM) also got it yesterday per email , but she was offered 4.000 miles for two return flights... Well, and the same question as always : Why didn't I get it too?

Anyhow, a very "interesting" and tempting offer

Hello,

and I will get 7000 miles... for three European roundtrips in biz... (this means 1166,67 bonus miles per C-Class-segment).

No, I will not make a mileage run...

I got the very same offer. I'm not impressed either and I'm certainly not going to do a MR over this... but, given the fact that I'm quite likely to do 2 intra-EU roundtrips during these 2.5 months anyway, I still appreciate the additional miles.

Just for the record: Remember the earlybookers promo this spring? It gave you 40'000 Bonusmiles for 2 return trips in Europe or 20 times as much bonus and it wasn't even targetted.
Sure, but you can't seriously expect an airline to come up with such a generous promo every few months.

At least we can keep on dreaming of the good old STC times, which really seem to be over already.
Not yet. If I do two weekend specials this fall, I'll get 6000 miles. I fear that the same will give me a measly 500 in a few months.

Circle promo slightly different !

This is what I got ...

With our Collecting promotion, you will receive 30000 additional Bonus Miles, if you make 3 intercontinental return flights between 1 October and 15 December 2005 in first or business class with SWISS or Lufthansa.

Sounds a little better doesn't it ?

Well, sounds a lot better

However, as a Circle-member you have deserved it...it's a goodbye present from STC as LH only matches you as SEN

I got this too. Not really worth it for just 7000 miles unless you live near Brussels and do the cheap BRU-ZRH-STR run for 325 euros (inc taxes). I've done it before but it's a bit of a hassle as I need to get to BRU first from DUB.

Hello,

I guess you have to fly BRU-ZRH-STR and back three times. If I unterstand correctly, the number of trips is relevant and not the number of segments.

Yes, that's what I meant ie. three roundtrips.

Hello,

a friend of me, who has a basic STC-membership, received a better offer: 3000 bonus miles for one round-trip... (in any class).
