I thought I’d drop this in as an extra quick item as the tickets may not still be there on Friday morning.
FA Cup Final tickets at Wembley have popped up for redemption with Emirates Skywards miles. They are NOT a bargain but if you can’t get tickets directly then this is your only option.
Tickets are available in both sections of the ground, so you can choose from either the Manchester City or Watford ends.
Tickets are 26,000 Emirates miles EACH. These are not hospitality packages.
There are VIP hospitality packages up for auction too. Bids start at 40,000 Emirates miles.
Remember that Emirates Skywards miles transfer instantly from American Express Membership Rewards if your accounts are already linked.
You can redeem your Emirates Skywards miles for seats here.
How to earn Emirates Skywards miles from UK credit cards (June 2021)
