Emirates has launched a new Skywards miles sale with up to a 45% bonus for purchases made through February 16, 2022.
Skywards members can buy miles at up to a 45% discount based on the email I received. However, there can be various targeted offers.
You can access this offer on the Emirates website here.
Note that base and Silver members can buy 100,000 and Gold/Platinum 200,000 Skywards miles in a calendar year. Only members that have had any previous activity on their Skywards accounts can purchase miles.
Here’s the price at 45% bonus:
The cost of a mile under this offer is 2.07 US cents each.
You can check the number of miles required for any city pair using this calculator (access here).
Emirates now “promotes” that you can use their miles for partner awards:
- Partner awards online: Qantas, JetBlue, Japan Airlines, Korean Air, and Malaysia Airlines
- Partner awards you need to call in: Air Mauritius, Bangkok Airways, Copa Airlines, GOL, Jetstar, S7, South African Airways & TAP Portugal
During previous sales, Emirates has sold Skywards miles up to a 100% bonus that will inevitably return. I would not buy miles at this discount unless I had a good use for right now.
Here are the terms and conditions of this sale:
The Promotion provides an Eligible Member with the opportunity to get up to 45% bonus Miles on the retail price when purchasing Skywards Miles (the “Offer”) during the Promotion Period from 00.01 GST on 7 February 2022 to 23.59 GST on 16 February 2022. This Offer is available only for transactions made to Buy Miles / Gift Miles on emirates.com via the Points Platform, and cannot be applied in combination with another offer that may be available on the Buy Miles / Gift Miles product. Skywards Miles bought/gifted through this Offer will count towards the combined maximum limit that a member can purchase for self or receive as a gift in a calendar year.
