The Emirates credit card has a 60,000 point offer and is counting spend towards earning elite status through the end of the year.
There are (3) things I did not realize about this card when I wrote about the 60,000 point initial bonus offer and the ability to spend towards elite status this year.
- It turns out that even though the offer was announced June 16 to count spend towards status (1 elite tier mile per 4 rewards miles earned) from a technical standpoint the tier mikes campaign went live on the 1st of June so all the spend made from the 1st of June will receive applicable tier miles. In other words, it’s retroactive.
- A commenter points out something I did not realize about the card as well, that no annual fee authorized users of the premium card get Priority Pass with unlimited visits at no extra cost as well.
- Additionally, the commenter also noted that while the premium card provides cardmembers with Gold elite status in the Skywards program the first year, and the ability to spend on the card to keep that status, those who fail to do so keep Silver status if they don’t meet that spend.
The Priority Pass unlimited for authorized users makes the premium card interesting to some.
