Emirates Skywards is running a special offer to celebrate reaching 25 million members.
The best deal is 25% off the miles required for ‘Saver’ redemptions to Dubai. This ONLY applies to flights which start or terminate in Dubai, so you would need to book a connecting journey on two tickets.
To qualify for this offer:
you must book by 19th September
you must travel between 12th September and 12th December
Upgrades from ‘Flex’ and ‘Flex Plus’ classes have also been reduced in mileage cost by 25% during the same dates.
You can also save 25% when you purchase 5,000+ Emirates Skywards miles until 2nd October. You can buy via this page.
‘Cash & Miles’ deals have also been improved – you can find out more about those here.
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 mile.
