We have previously flagged how you can redeem your Emirates Skywards miles for Premier League or other top level European football matches.
However, with packages as high as 30,000 miles, it’s not necessarily the best value use of your miles. At the other end of the scale, however, Emirates are offering tickets for certain of this weekend’s English FA Cup 2nd round matches at a remarkable 1 Emirates Skyward mile each.
The tickets come courtesy of Emirates sponsorship of the FA Cup, and the matches on offer are:
- Salford City v Hartlepool United
- Stourbridge v Eastleigh
- Northampton Town v Northwich Victoria
- Rochdale v Bury
- Welling United v Carlisle United
- Dagenham & Redbridge v Whitehawk
- Oxford United v Forest Green Rovers
- Grimsby Town v Shrewsbury Town
You’ll notice that the minor celebrities of Salford City are one of the options. So your chance to watch the team owned by Giggs, the Neville brothers, Butt and Scholes.
Given that you’re unlikely to get much change from £20 for entry to a lot of these games, using 1 Emirates mile, with an approximate value of less than 1 pence, is an absolute steal.
To redeem, you need to go to this page (log-in required), book the ticket and collect it at the stadium.
