Emirates is a direct transfer partners of a few major credit card rewards programs including American Express Membership Rewards and CommBank Awards. This makes it possible to earn Emirates Skywards Miles via everyday spending and intro bonuses.
Here's the list of programs that allow you to transfer your rewards to Emirates:
AMEX Membership Rewards
Membership Rewards points can be transferred to Emirates Skywards at a rate of 2:1 meaning that every 2,000 AMEX points you transfer will give you 1,000 Emirates miles. This makes AMEX the best option for earning rewards transferable to Emirates.
Earn 1.25 points per $1 spent on all purchases (excluding government bodies in Australia).
Earn 1 point per $1 spent on purchases at government bodies in Australia.
Smartphone Cover with up to $500 for repairs.
$0 annual fee.
CommBank Awards points can be transferred to Emirates Skywards at a rate of 4:1 meaning that every 4,000 CommBank points you transfer will give you 1,000 Emirates miles. With CommBank credit cards offering between 1X and 3X points per $1 spent, this is a very low transfer ratio that will not net you many Emirates miles.
I would only recommend going this route if you really... really need to top off your Skywards account.
