Searching for Emirates sweet spots with partner airline awards

Emirates’ loyalty program, Skywards, has quietly become one of the promiscuous around now that they partner with Chase, Capital One, Amex, and Marriott (see our Transfer Partner Master List).  This makes their miles easy to get since you can transfer to them from almost anywhere (Citi is the one major holdout so far). In addition to the many ways one can get miles, there are many ways to spend Emirates Skywards miles.  You can, of…

Chase Adds Emirates Skywards As Transfer Partner

Chase Ultimate Rewards Emirates

One of the best features of Chase Ultimate Rewards is the ability to transfer points to airlines and hotel programs. That list has expanded to 10 airlines as Emirates Skywards has been added as a new transfer partner. I’m not entirely sure when Emirates was added as an Ultimate Rewards transfer partner, but it’s likely to have been either today or in the last couple of days. You can now transfer points on a 1:1…

(EXPIRED) Emirates: Save $75-$1,000 On Round-Trip Flights From US With Promo Code USAMX19

Emirates USAMX19

Emirates is offering discounts ranging from $75 for economy class flights up to $1,000 for first class flights when booking a round trip that originates in the US. In many cases you won’t get the discount as the cheapest fare class seems to be excluded, but I was (finally!) able to find at least one example where the USAMX19 promo code can save you money. The Deal Save on qualifying round-trip flights with Emirates when…

[Expired] A pretty nice-looking Travelzoo deal to Milan

I don’t usually pay much attention to the package deals sent out weekly by Travelzoo — but today one caught my eye that looks like a very solid value if you’re looking to travel to Milan between January and March: round trip direct flights from New York + 4 nights hotel starting at $449 per person. That $449 price point is only available on select dates (and with double occupancy), though there are a number of…

Crazy promo: RT First Class on Emirates, Korean or others for $800 or less

Update: It appears that the milez.biz rates are not correct for these redemptions. See www.smiles.br to check rates. Update #2 to come… Update #2: The terms of this promotion state that you must be a Brazilian citizen. It’s possible that this won’t be enforced, but I am including updates and I am no longer recommending this promotion. It might work — but there is simply too much grey area to know. Furthermore, the award rates from milez.biz were completely…

Emirates honoring Maldives error fare! Call to reinstate

Last week, we published a quick deal for an incredible mistake fare from the Maldives to New York for just $101 on Emirates. Routes were also available to Europe from $65 one-way and you could add stopovers for a nominal amount more. We later discovered that the fare worked round trip to New York for just $142 and also to many additional cities, so we posted an update. In our subsequent post asking “Will Emirates Honor the…

Will Emirates honor the Maldives mistake fare?

Last night, we posted an incredible mistake fare from the Maldives to New York for just $101 one-way or $142 round trip. You could fly with stopovers for a bit more or to many European destinations for about $65. The catch was whether or not Emirates would honor this incredible fare. At the time, we urged readers to wait before making any additional bookings as this seemed unlikely to be honored. This morning, a reader…
