The number of partner merchants under Mileslife has expanded so quickly that it is sometimes hard to decide exactly which one to visit to earn your Miles. Recently, Mileslife has included a category called “Best For Miles”, where users can sort through the dining establishments providing the highest number of Miles per $1 spend.
If you have linked your Emirates Skywards account to the Mileslife app as your frequent flyer programme of choice, you can also earn bonus Skywards Miles ranging from 25% to 75% if you are a Silver, Gold or Platinum member. Currently, Emirates Skywards is the only frequent flyer programme on Mileslife that offers tier based bonuses. If you’ve always wanted to redeem your Skywards Miles for Emirates flights, it is so much easier and more convenient now with Mileslife, as the Skywards Miles you earn with partner merchants are credited to your Emirates Skywards account directly. Essentially, this complements any Miles you earn on Emirates flights. There are also no extra fees to be incurred for crediting the Miles into your account, unlike with credit card point redemptions.
Redemption-wise, you can use your Skywards Miles to partially offset the cost of your Emirates flight or you can also use it to redeem a reward flight. Emirates has a couple of direct routes out of Singapore, including Colombo, Dubai, Melbourne and Brisbane, as well as indirect flights to Europe, Africa and the Americas so there are plenty of opportunities to redeem those Skywards Miles. Out of Singapore, the minimum number of Skywards Miles you can use to redeem a flight is for an Economy Class round trip Saver ticket to Colombo. That requires 27,500 Miles (for base fare only). Assume you have flown Emirates in the past for long haul trips. One round trip flight to Europe and another to the United States from Singapore over the years on an Economy Flex fare would have already netted you 23,250 Skywards Miles. Add in the Skywards Miles you could get with Mileslife to make up for the difference (i.e. 4,250 Miles in this example) and you’d have enough Miles for a redemption flight to Colombo.
