    Thank you everyone for your comments. I understand that getting a MM Credit Card can help but only if I have had it for at least 3 months before the expiration date of my miles. The problem is that my miles expire in less than 3 months.

    Welcome to MP. I hope you find your time here enjoyable.

    While I cannot answer your question, there are a bunch of helpful people in the Miles & More forum of MP that can. You may want to post your question again there as they may not look in the "general discussion" forum as readily.

    Again, welcome.

    If you have the Starwood AMEX, transfer 100 miles from that account to Miles and More. Done.

    I may be wrong, but I do not think that transferring miles will extend the expiration date for LH miles. LH is different in this way than other programs.

    Also the US version of the LH credit card, I believe, will not extend the expiration date neither because it's the US version, not the German version.

    That said the only options that I see for OP are to obtain Frequent Traveller, Senator or HON Circle Member status.

    This is bad advice. Single transactions don't reset the clock on M&M.

    The US version does with some conditions.

    Based on the OP, I don't get the feeling they're US-based.

The problem is that my miles expire in less than 3 months. Can miles be transferred from one * alliance airline to another? I also have United Mileage Plus.

    Miles are good for spending just like money...

    Today a savings account pays no interest, and the cost of mayo has gone to $3,99 from 39 cents in the day if the 50s

    How's that for change..

    Issue with Senator status that I don't understand why it is so difficult to get it for only few benefits.
    1) senator lounges always over run
    2) priority luggage coming of hte belt as last
    3) no free upgrades to business (I got upgrades while having only frequent flyer status)
    4) issues with award availability
    What really puzzles me is that it took me a lot of flights to reach senator in the first place.

    One note.. MM miles not expire with Lufhansa CC if every month you make a valid purchase with CC.
    For transfer ... try to see at points.com
