4,000 Emirates Skywards miles with a 3+ day rental of a standard car

Whilst you might not be an existing Skywards collector, it is worth remembering that you can convert them into Heathrow Airport shopping vouchers (6,000 miles = £20) or use them for a discount on a hotel stay.

How to earn Emirates Skywards miles via UK credit cards

As a reminder, Emirates no longer has its own UK credit card.  However, you can earn Emirates Skywards points by converting Membership Rewards points earned from selected UK American Express cards.  These are:

American Express Preferred Rewards Gold – 10,000 Membership Rewards points sign-up bonus

The Platinum Card from American Express – 30,000 Membership Rewards points sign-up bonus

American Express Rewards credit card – 5,000 Membership Rewards points sign-up bonus

Membership Rewards points convert at 1:1 into Emirates Skywards miles.  The cards above all earn 1 Membership Rewards point per £1 spent on your card, which converts to 1 Emirates Skywards miles.

  1. O/T – Tried to use Tesco Pay + today for my shopping and got told they are withdrawing it as people have been committing fraud. Oddly no mention of this in articles or on Tesco website. My Avios earnings now drop from 5.4 per £1 to 4.8 🙁

    • Ah that might explain why I’m locked out and it won’t let me in even though i reset the password

    • TGLoyalty says:

      I don’t understand how you can commit fraud any easier than any other payment method.

      Surely the answer isn’t to withdraw it but to make the system more secure.

      • For the last couple of weeks we have had to have management authorisation when using the Pay+ app. The guy at our local store said some people had gained access to photographs of staff pay+ codes and were using them to get staff discounts – hence the security check at the tills.

        • You would think Tesco had a lot more to worry about than a few people getting unentitled discounts 🙂

        • Ahh I wondered what was going on – had that issue yesterday and was asked if I was a staff member! Also had to have code rescanned a few times. When I contacted their Twitter team they said it was a known issue if you had a Tesco Bank Clubcard attached and to switch to a regular Clubcard instead (they confirmed usual bonus points would still be applied).
