I manage the Emirates Skywards accounts for a few members of my family. Well, manage is bit of an exaggeration. I have pooled all our miles into a family account as nobody in my family flies Emirates enough to have a shot at redeeming miles. As I had explained in this post, pooling makes it easier for you to redeem miles.
So today, my mum got an interesting email from Emirates. She could buy Skywards miles with a whopping 50% bonus. This is the highest ever bonus I have seen. Usually, Emirates offers a bonus of 30% as a promotion.
Get 50% Bonus on Purchase of Emirates Skywards Miles
The offer is valid from October 22, 2019 to October 27, 2019.
Emirates allows you to buy a maximum of 100,000 Skywards miles in a calendar year. So, if you have not bought any in 2019, you could buy a total of 150,000 miles (including bonus). At 3 cents per mile, it would cost you $3,000. Not cheap, but depending on your travel plans, you may be able to get a good deal on redemption.
How to Check if You are Targeted?
This promotion seems to be heavily targeted. No other account I manage has received this offer.
To know if you are one of the lucky ones, click on this link. This should take you to the purchase page once you sign-in. If you do not see the bonus, you are not targeted.
I would love to know if you have been targeted for this offer. Please leave comments below.
