Emirates Skywards: Claiming, Purchasing or Transferring Miles
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 Manage Account section. Miles can also be purchased through your nearest Emirates Contact Center.

- 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.
