If you fancy a weekend away in Europe whilst catching some top tennis, Emirates Skywards has some interesting packages available.  You can redeem via the Skywards website here.

There are tickets for the Swiss Indoors Basel tournament (22nd to 28th October) and the Erste Bank Open in Vienna (also 22nd to 28th October!).

Tickets for both tournaments start at 7500 miles per pair for standard Centre Court tickets, and 10000 miles (Vienna) or 12000 miles (Basel) per pair for box seats with VIP hospitality.

They also still have football tickets for Arsenal, AC Milan, SL Benfica, Real Madrid, Hamburger and Paris Saint-Germain available, as we have mentioned before.

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.

    RE: ‘It made no difference on British Airways American Express 2-4-1 voucher bookings because those had to originate in the UK’ – yes they have to originate in UK but you can book 2 one-ways on a 241 voucher. Book outbound initially with the voucher, then book the return when it becomes available online (at full avios price) then call to have the voucher applied and get half of the return leg avios refunded.
