Emirates has quietly changed the tier extension and miles validity policies on October 31, 2021, which a reader alerted us about.
Skywards Platinum, Gold, and Silver tiers expiring until February 2022 are extended by 12 months, and miles expiry pushed to March 31, 2022.
You can access the Emirates page for tier extensions here.
The current tier status for all Emirates Skywards Platinum, Gold and Silver members has been extended for 12 months. Your tier status will automatically be extended for 12 months once you reach your tier review date between now and February 2022. For example, if your tier review date is on or before February 28, 2022, your net tier review date will automatically be adjusted to February 28, 2023. You will be able to retain your tier status based on your travel activity between March 1, 2022 and February 28, 2023.
We recognize that ongoing travel restrictions globally may impact your ability to travel with Emirates and will be in contact with opportunities for you to retain your tier with greater ease starting March 2022.
*The Tier Miles on everyday spends offer is currently available on selected Emirates Skywards co branded cards in the UAE, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and USA.
Skywards Miles Validity Extensions:
We’ve extended the validity of any Skywards Miles due to expire on or after April 2020 until March 31, 2022. You can use your Skywards Miles up to 11 months in advance for an extensive range of rewards, including flight tickets on Emirates and partner airlines, flight upgrades, hotel stays, and money can’t buy experiences.
We recognize that ongoing restrictions may have given you fewer opportunities to make the most of your Skywards Miles, and we will soon share attractive offers on which to spend your Miles starting March 31, 2022.
Please note that the details of this relaxed policy may not immediately reflect in the ‘My Account’ section of emirates.com. Your revised tier review date will be updated in the month of your existing review date.
Sensible decision from Emirates to extend both member tiers and Skywards miles expiry. Let’s see if they run double tier miles offers in 2022 like they have done this year.
