How to earn Emirates Skywards miles from UK credit cards

How to earn Emirates Skywards miles from UK credit cards (September 2022)

Emirates Skywards does not have a UK credit card.  However, you can earn Emirates Skywards miles by converting Membership Rewards points earned from selected UK American Express cards.

Cards earning Membership Rewards points include:

EDIT: Until 25th October 2022, there is an exceptionally generous sign-up bonus on The Platinum Card. You will receive 60,000 Membership Rewards points – double the usual amount – and £200 to spend at Amex Travel. You need to spend £6,000 within six months to earn the bonus.

Membership Rewards points convert at 1:1 into Emirates Skywards miles which is an attractive rate.  The cards above all earn 1 Membership Rewards point per £1 spent on your card, which converts to 1 Emirates Skywards mile. The Gold card earns double points (2 per £1) on all flights you charge to it.

    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.
