Full details of the loyalty programme can be found at emirates.com/uk.

Skywards Miles are earned on card purchase transactions only.

The Skywards Miles programme is provided by Emirates.

You will not be able to earn Skywards Miles during any statement period where you are in breach of your terms and conditions, for example if you haven’t paid on time or have gone over your credit limit.

The number of Skywards Miles earned each month from credit card spend will be displayed on your monthly credit card statement, and will then be added to your Emirates Skywards account within 30 days of the statement date. Please note, it is not possible to allocate Skywards Miles to your account before they have appeared on your statement. Where a refund is made on your card, your Skywards Miles total will be adjusted accordingly. If your Emirates Skywards Credit Card Account is closed before the production of your next statement, then any Miles you have earned during the current statement period will be lost. Skywards Miles can be suspended or cancelled if you do not keep your account in good standing. If you are already an Emirates Skywards member it is your responsibility to enter your existing membership number on this application. Failure to do so will result in automatic duplicate enrolment into Emirates Skywards. Please note the Emirates Skywards membership number you give us must be for an Emirates Skywards account in your name. If you have any additional card members on your card account, any Skywards Miles they earn by spending on their cards will also be credited to your Emirates Skywards account. Your personal information will be processed by Emirates so they can enrol you in the Emirates Skywards programme and to calculate and apply the amount of any rewards you earn. Full details of the loyalty programme can be found at emirates.com/uk.
