Just a few days after the last campaign ended, Emirates has launched a new Skywards miles sale with up to a 30% bonus for purchases made through October 21, 2022.
Skywards members can buy miles at up to a 30% bonus on top of the purchased amount based on the email we received (different targeted offers may be possible) though not all accounts are eligible.
Note that base and Silver members can buy 100,000 and Gold/Platinum 200,000 Skywards miles in a calendar year. Only members with previous activity on their Skywards accounts can purchase miles.
There are some useful options for Emirates Skywards miles but do consider that they recently upped the points requirements for many routes, and the award ticket surcharges may be pretty crazy and not worthwhile compared to market, revenue fares.
You can access this offer on the Emirates website here.
The bonus amount for purchases during this campaign are as follows:
- Buy 5,000-15,000 miles, get a 15% bonus
- Buy 16,000-25,000 miles, get a 20% bonus
- Buy 26,000-100,000 miles, get a 30% bonus
When purchasing the maximum amount of 100,000 miles the pricing is like this:
The cost of one mile under this offer is rather high and not a great option unless a last-minute purchase is urgently needed to issue an award.
You can check the number of miles required for any city pair using this calculator (access here).
During previous sales, Emirates has sold Skywards miles up to a 100% bonus that will inevitably return. I would not buy miles at this price unless I had a good use for right now. It also seems that Points.com and Emirates may have raised the cost of the miles recently. I don’t consider it a good offer unless you urgently need some miles to top up the account.
It seems that this 30-35% off sale has become a monthly feature based on the offers Emirates has had throughout 2022.
Here are the terms and conditions of this sale:
The Promotion provides an Eligible Member with the opportunity to get up to 30% Bonus on the retail price when purchasing Skywards Miles (the “Offer”) during the Promotion Period from 00.01 GST on 10 October 2022 to 23.59 GST on 21 October 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.
