MBNA has issued credit cards in the UK since 1993 and now offers a range of credit cards, in particular, competitive balance transfer and rewards cards.
With the Emirates Skywards Credit Card Account and Emirates Skywards Elite Credit Card Account, you earn Miles1 whenever you spend on your cards and additional Miles when you spend with Emirates2. Each account includes two cards, designed to work seamlessly together so you can earn Miles even faster.
The Emirates Credit Card Accounts are issued by MBNA Limited. Emirates is a credit broker and not a lender.
In addition to earning Miles with the Emirates Skywards Credit Card Accounts, you can enjoy a host of additional benefits.
1 Every GBP 1 you spend on the Emirates Skywards American Express® Credit Card, Emirates Skywards Visa Credit Card, Emirates Skywards Elite American Express® Credit Card and Emirates Skywards Elite Visa Credit Card earns you Skywards Miles. Cash advances, money transfers, and balances you transfer to MBNA Limited do not earn Skywards Miles. Cash substitute transactions (such as non-sterling currency), casino and gambling type transactions, finance changes, default charges, interest, payment protection insurance premium and fees (including non-sterling transaction fees and card fees) do not earn Skywards Miles (unless we inform you otherwise). We may withhold or withdraw Skywards Miles accrued or earned on card purchases made whilst your account balance is in credit. Cash advances, money transfers, and balances you transfer to MBNA Limited do not earn Skywards Miles.
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 or Emirates Skywards Elite 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 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 cardholders 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 reward scheme can be found at emirates.com/uk.

Failure to do so will result in automatic duplicate enrolment into Emirates Skywards.
