As a general rule, we never turn down free miles, because, well…they’re free. This is why we suggest everyone take advantage of this Emirates Skywards reward program offer. As we first reported back in January, the airline is offering new signups 2,000 free miles simply for signing up for Skywards – but only until March 31, 2022

For the latest travel news, deals, and points and miles tips, please subscribe to The Points Guy daily email newsletter.

All you have to do is use the promo code FLYDUBAI to qualify for the bonus. The miles will post instantly into your account once you enrol. That’s it; no other requirements are needed to qualify for the bonus. Click here to sign up and learn more about the offer.

As we said at the top, it’s always worth grabbing free miles if the opportunity arises, even if you don’t regularly fly that airline.

One reason why the Emirates offer is especially appealing is that the carrier is partnered with all the major transferable currencies.

You can transfer credit card points from all four major issuers into the Emirates Skywards program.

Some of the best redemptions we’ve seen have been people using Amex points to book Emirates’ legendary first class. You too can experience the famous Emirates sky-bound luxury.

Skywards can also help you land cheaper JetBlue redemptions — you can now use Emirates Skywards miles for JetBlue flights including its famous Mint business class.

A few details to note: The bonus miles are only valid for one year before they expire, though some accounts are showing expiration dates 15 months after account opening.

The offer is open until March 31, 2022 (this week!), so you can extend your travel window by waiting as close to that date as possible to sign up. One option for using the miles is Emirates Skywards Cash+Miles redemptions which just happens to require a minimum of 2,000 miles to be utilized.

If you have trouble signing up at first, be sure to try shutting the browser window and logging back in using the password you created. TPG’s Clint Henderson had trouble getting it to work at first but once he closed the browser and logged back in, the 2,000 miles showed up right away.
