How do I purchase miles?

If you haven't earned enough miles to achieve the reward of your choice, or if you’d like to give miles to a fellow Emirates Skywards® member as a gift, you can purchase them online by logging in and going to the My Account section. Miles can also be purchased through your nearest Emirates Contact Center.

  • You can buy a minimum of 2,000 and a maximum of 25,000 Skywards Miles each year, priced at USD 40 for every 1,000 miles.
  • The limit for purchasing miles is 25,000 miles per calendar year.
  • Please note that miles cannot be purchased for a member who has already bought 25,000 miles themselves or had 25,000 miles bought for them by another member in the same calendar year.
  • Purchased miles are credited to your account or the recipient’s account immediately and are nonrefundable.
  • Tier Miles cannot be purchased.
  • An earning activity (e.g., an Emirates flight or partner transaction) must show in your account before you can buy miles for yourself.
  • An earning activity (e.g., an Emirates flight or partner transaction) must show in a recipient’s account before you can buy miles for him or her.
