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.

    Nice Sunday brunch at the Nobu Shorditch. Great value, includes delicious buffet and then plates to table (seem to remember 6).

  • What's the Point says:

    Ref – Marriott points part. Does the pop up box appear on any particular page when you log into your Creation account?

    • Roger* says:

      Yes, after you complete the numbers code. It’s an information page, When I click on ‘Find Out More’, I get ‘Page not found’.

      I do hope it’s not necessary to sign up for the offer!

    • Rob says:

      First page after logging in.

      • RussellH says:

        No pop-up for me, with or without adblocker.
        Perhaps they think I put too much on the card anyway?
        I need to phone them anyway, as they have not replied to my e-mail of a week ago about giving me fewer points than are printed on my statement.

    • jo says:

      Nada for me. 🙁

  • BJ says:

    OT: Tesco mobile @Nick and others discussing yesterday. My latest lot of points have posted this morning so that now 10x bonus all exactly 9 days after topping up with the £20 voucher.

    • Simon says:

      As Jedi mind tricks go, impressive, most impressive… 🙂

    • Liz says:

      I did my first one at the weekend. Have a 2nd one to try. Are you using any of the data? Or just buying the points for the price of the voucher. We can use the data on one when we are away in our caravan next week as you have to pay for WiFi at the sites so I will be able to use up one lot of data. Normally use a mobile WiFi gadgety thing.

      • BJ says:

        No, not using them at all. Obviously it’s an even better deal if you can get use out of the sims. I think it runs for a while yet so hopefullh you can get use out your second sim too.

    • Grant says:

      Good news! Might be worth just explaining how you have split this. How many per card, how many per account, etc.

      Cheers

      • BJ says:

        Not as good as you think 🙁 It is 5 clubcard accounts ×2. However, somebody reported last week we can get 2 per number per clubcard so over 4k is possible. So far this has not yet been confirmed by anybody else AFAIK.

        • Grant says:

          Ah! I have succesfully done 2 x 2,000 points per card, but haven’t yet tried more than 4,000 points per account.

          I’ve done this across two accounts (one card on each account) but have second and third cards on each account to use if we know more than 4,000 per account is achievable.

        • Erico1875 says:

          It says max 2k cc points. I think you can get 1 x £20 too up or 2 x £10 top up.
          Shower I would love to hear if anyone has got 4k points

        • BJ says:

          @Erico, it is now well established that each clubcard account can get 2x 2k points for 2x £20 topnupsl

  • Memesweeper says:

    Still no word on the new Marriott Bonvoy UK card then I guess?

  • Simon says:

    Wow, this Tesco Rocket Packs offer is something else! After spending an age navigating their clunky websites I run into ‘security issues’ topping up the account and am told by their agent to wait a few days and try again. Local Tesco doesn’t stock the £20 Rocket Packs. I’ve started this so I’m determined to finish but frankly losing the will to live. If I was simply after a new PAYG service I would have long since gone to a competitor.

    • Liz says:

      I ordered the free sims online and they came in 2 days – our local small Tesco didn’t have them to pick up. Went to the big Extra shop with a phone shop and bought a £20 voucher and topped up that way per BJ’s instructions.

      • Simon says:

        Thanks Liz. Will pop up my local big Tesco, which I seee has a phone shop, over the Easter weekend and try that way.

        • BJ says:

          Ignore the app and websute.

          1. Pop sim in phone and make unanswered call to activate ysing 20p credit that comes on sim. You will receive 3 part txt message welcone to tesco mobile.
          2. Call 282 to add clubcard number. You receive txt confirming it’s added.
          3. Call 4444 to add £20 top up voucher (buy in store when collecting the sims, sins are fred if purchased with a top up voucher). You will receive txt saying rocket pack will be added within next 2h.

        • Crafty says:

          You don’t need to go to Tesco to top up. You can go to any shop that sells Tesco Mobile top up. We did at it our local Co Op.

        • BJ says:

          Yes, but if he wants the sim card for free from a store then he needs to buy a top up at same time otherwise tbey are 99p I think.

        • Alex W says:

          I did all mine online and by phone. Never set foot in a store.

        • Tom1 says:

          Can multiple Tesco accounts redeem for the same avios or VS account?

        • Crafty says:

          Didn’t realise they were free, good tip BJ. Paid 99p each for Mine!

    • DaveL says:

      Hi Simon. I had the same irritating error. Solution to doing this online is to go here and buy a £20 online tesco top up voucher:
      https://www.tesco.com/phones/shop/online-top-ups
      It will be delivered to you via email. Call the number, give the voucher code and done. Hope that helps.

  • Chuck says:

    Bits: Signed up for Heathrow Rewards BA2019 promo, spend £150 in a day and get 2000 points. Did the spend 2 weeks ago giving my card details to the retailers. Still nothing on my account except 100 points welcome bonus.
    Anyone else had spend register and time frame please ?

    • Alex says:

      Happened to me last year – had to email to customer service who sorted it out.

  • JK says:

    I work on Portman Square – just a quick correction but the new Nobu is behind M&S Marble Arch / Selfridges and not John Lewis!

    • Alex Sm says:

      I just wanted to say the same – I work near there and John Lewis is much further down Oxford St, closer to Oxford Circus

  • Titus Adduxas says:

    OT – I’m looking at flights from Newcastle to Sydney over Christmas and can get them for about £2400 (Skyscanner) with Skyteam, a bit more than the £2000 ex EU but not too much considering the lack of direct flights to a cheaper starting point and definitely a lot less than One Worlds offering.

    Outbound would be KLM from AMS to Seoul on a 777 and a Korean A380 to Sydney, returning on China’s A350 to Taipei and an AF 777 to Paris. I’m very happy with AF and KLM’s 777 Business seats but don’t know anything about the other two.

    Three quick questions then….
    1: Would you be happy with Korean and China
    2: Is it worth a few days in Seoul and Taipei each way.
    3: If so how do you go about booking the layovers.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Titus Adduxas

    • Michael says:

      1. Korean are deemed to be a good airline. China’s A350 i’ve been on in Economy but Business looked very good too and the seat is better than you’ll find on BA.
      2 and 3 I can’t help you on sorry. Try using multi city to get the layovers in.

      • Titus Adduxas says:

        Sadly multi-city doesn’t seem to work; the prices are astronomical even using the same airlines.

    • illuminatus says:

      2 days in Seoul are worth it, one of the best bars and restaurants I’ve come across, plus some sightseeing on top.

    • BJ says:

      Have you checked prices exPrague at Korean and Czech Airlines webpages?

    • Anthony Edwards says:

      I find that often the cheapest fares don’t allow you to extend the layover, unfortunately.
