Which Emirates credit card partners are best?

American Express and CommBank don't have the best rates when it comes to getting the most out of your points, but they are the best (and pretty much only) options for building up Emirates Skywards miles on everyday spending.

AMEX Membership Rewards

Membership Rewards points can be transferred to Emirates Skywards at a rate of 3:1 meaning that every 3,000 AMEX points you transfer will give you 1,000 Emirates miles. This makes AMEX the best option for earning rewards transferable to Emirates.

CommBank Awards

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.
