Emirates has launched a new offer to buy Skywards miles with a twist that we haven’t previously seen.
You can earn ONE tier mile for every FOUR awards miles you purchase between September 24 – October 3, 2020.
You can access this offer on Emirates’ website here.
Price of miles:
Non-elite members can buy up to 100,000 Skywards miles that would yield 25,000 elite tier miles = enough for a Silver. The price of a mile at the full price is 3 cents each (very pricey).
Skywards benefits matrix:
This is an excellent way for members to get some tier miles they may need to reach a higher or retain their current status with Emirates. No need for a mileage run.
Let’s hope that airlines continue offers such as this when the times are good again.
