How to earn Emirates Skywards miles via UK credit cards

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. OT

    Has Hilton Chat been abolished?
    Does anyone know how to find out when their Hilton status expires please?

  2. O/T : With so much comments going in Amex, I believe someone can suggest –

    I applied for Amex Plat (Six Months Gap) however after the new bonus rules. There is a progress bar in my account showing 30000 points on 2K.

    I had a chat session with Amex, representative can see that I have bonus progress bar through insist rules have changed.

    May someone please suggest or in same position?

    • Idiot. You don’t deserve the points you are inevitably going to get if you alert amex about it.

    • Spend £2k and see what happens?

      If you applied for the card in the knowledge that you wouldn’t get the welcome bonus, you must be happy to spend on the card anyway.

      What have you got to lose?

      • £60 gamble using Bill Hop (I applied the card for long trip I have insurance + lounge).

  3. No Marriott double points for me either but i can have a loan at 7.9%.

  4. Waddle says:

    Do I have to use my Plat to book with Marriott in order to make use of the Gold Elite Status? Would I for example be able to book a stay direct with Marriott, logged into my account but pay with OH’s SPG card and get the Gold benefits which are on my account?

    Thanks in advance.

    • Book with any card you like. You will still be Bonvoy gold even if you cancel your platinum card.

      • The Original Nick says:

        @BJ, how does the NS&I trick work for the Lloyds upgrade voucher? I have a NS&I account I used way back for the 3v cards and still have it.

  5. Kevin C says:

    OT. Email saying save 25% when you buy 5000 or more Bonvoy points. Runs until May 15th 2019. Don’t know if it’s targeted.

    • I got it too, probably open to all. Interesting to see that SPG thing surviving the merger.

  6. Waddle says:

    Sorry for OT and noob question:
    How do I get the Marriott website to show prices in GBP? I want to price up some potential stays. Every property shows in the local currency.

    • Michael says:

      I’m sure there’s an option to change to GBP somewhere. Might be desktop only or app only, I can’t remember which.
