Emirates Launches Emirates Skywards Mastercard with Barclays

Customers can now earn Skywards Miles quickly through everyday spend, including travel and lifestyle purchases, as well as enjoy immediate Silver or Gold tier membership status during the first year, and earn up to 40,000 bonus Skywards Miles and many more privileges.
The credit card launch is in line with Emirates Skywards’ strategy of offering its members more opportunities to earn Miles on the ground.
This also complements the recently launched Skywards Miles @mall in the U.S., giving members over 1,000 ways to earn Miles while shopping online and instore with popular brands such as Apple, Macy’s and ASOS.
Two versions of the credit card are available: Emirates Skywards Rewards World Elite Mastercard®, which offers Silver tier membership status and has as an annual fee of $99, and Emirates Skywards Premium World Elite Mastercard®, which offers Gold tier membership status and has an annual fee of $499.
Both cards earn 3 Skywards Miles for every $1 spent on eligible Emirates purchases; 2 Skywards Miles on eligible travel purchases; and 1 Skywards Mile on all other purchases.
