The Emirates Skywards Refer-A-Friend Program lets you earn thousands of Skywards Miles by inviting your friends to join Emirates Skywards and complete their first flight.
If you’re not already an Emirates Skywards member, you can earn up to 5,000 Skywards Miles on your first flight as a new Emirates Skywards member.
Plus, once you join the free Emirates Skywards frequent flyer program, you can earn from 1,500 to 4,000 bonus Skywards Miles for each new member that you refer to the Emirates Skywards program who completes their first flight.
It’s free to join the Emirates Skywards Program to start earning Skywards Miles for your flights and other activities.
Emirates Skywards Refer-A-Friend Program
The Emirates Skywards Refer-A-Friend Program will give you bonus Skywards Miles when you refer your friends to join Emirates Skywards and complete their first flight.
To access the referral program, you can visit the “Refer A Friend” link under My Account when you log in to the Emirates Skywards program.
You can earn the following Skywards Miles, depending upon which class your referrals travel for their first flight:
- Economy Class – 1,500 Miles
- Business Class – 2,500 Miles
- First Class – 4,000 Miles
For you to receive the bonus miles, your referrals must join Emirates Skywards within the promotion period via the link on the nomination email they receive and take their first flight within 6 months of becoming a member.
The bonus miles are credited to your Emirates Skywards account once your referrals first flight is credited to their account.
At any given time, you can refer a maximum of 10 family members, friends, or colleagues who are not already Emirates Skywards or Family Bonus members (referrals must be over the age of 18).
Active referrals include those who have joined Emirates Skywards as a result of your invitation and those who have been invited but have yet to join.
If your referral decides not to join Emirates Skywards, you can delete them from your list and send an invitation to someone else.
Emirates Skywards Family Bonus Program
The Emirates Skywards Family Bonus Program works similar to the referral program, but it is only available for people who are related to each other.
As the Family Head, you can nominate up to 8 relatives into your Family Bonus circle.
You can add up to 8 family members who are related to you in one of the following ways: mother, father, sibling, child, spouse, grandchild, grandparent, parent-in-law, daughter-in-law, son-in-law, sister-in-law, brother-in-law, stepparent, stepdaughter, stepson, stepsister, or stepbrother (you may also add maids who travel with your family).
Whenever those relatives fly with Emirates, your account will be credited with 20% of the base Skywards Miles value of their ticket, plus 20% of any Business Class or First Class bonuses.
Once you have added your initial 8 nominations, you may make a maximum of 6 changes per year, but after 6 changes, you will be unable to make any more deletions or additions in that calendar year.
Unfortunately, Family Bonus members do not earn Skywards Miles themselves, so you’ll want to pick and choose wisely as to who you select, as they may be better off earning miles on their own instead.
Family Bonus members must be over 2 years of age and may only be registered to one Family Bonus account.
Participate in the Emirates Skywards Refer-A-Friend Program as well as the Family Bonus promotion to earn extra Skywards Miles toward upgrade rewards or even return flight rewards.
