Emirates Skywards: Earning Miles and Miles Accelerator

What is "opting in"? Why do I have to do this to receive bonus miles?

To ensure we can track your miles progress and credit bonus miles to your account, you must be opted in for a Miles Accelerator bonus before you travel. This information is stored in your Emirates Skywards® account, so that when you fly the extra miles automatically appear in your statement. If you purchase a ticket online, we will automatically opt you in. If you purchase a ticket from a travel agent, you can visit emirates.com and opt in before or after you buy your ticket, as long as you do so during the month of purchase.
