Emirates has released FA Cup semi final tickets for Emirates Skywards members who have miles to redeem.  You can also use American Express Membership Rewards points via a transfer.

We have been critical of the pricing of VIP seats at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium this season when using Skywards miles, at 60,000 to 65,000 miles per seat.

The FA Cup seats are a lot cheaper.

As of last night, you could get:

Manchester City vs Liverpool on 16th April

  • 13,500 miles for standard seats (both ends available)
  • 45,000 miles for Club Wembley hospitality seats (both ends available)

Chelsea vs Crystal Palace on 17th April

  • 13,500 miles for standard seats (both ends available)
  • 45,000 miles for Club Wembley hospitality seats (both ends available)

Full details and booking is available on this page of the Emirates website.

Transfers from American Express Membership Rewards to Emirates Skywards are instantaneous if the accounts are already linked and should be pretty quick even if they are not.

How to earn Emirates Skywards miles from UK credit cards (May 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.

The Platinum Card has doubled its sign-up bonus to 60,000 Membership Rewards points, which convert to 60,000 Skywards miles, if you apply by 1st June 2022.

Cards earning Membership Rewards points include:

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.
