Never let anyone tell you to tone down on the shopping again … at least when it comes to spending at The Dubai Mall anyway.
The largest mall in the world has announced a partnership with Emirates which means the more you spend, the more air miles you earn. So if you regularly splash the cash there anyway, or are planning a retail therapy trip to the city to spend some serious dirham, you could earn yourself a free flight or upgrade in the process.
For every US dollar (approximately AED3.67) you spend on food, fashion, entertainment etc Silver, Gold and Platinum Emirates Skywards members will earn a mile. But Blue members will have to spend $2 (approximately AED7.34) to get the same. There's a limit though; Blue and Silver members have a cap of 5,000 miles each month and Gold and Platinum can earn 10,000. All you have to do is scan your receipts valued at a minimum of AED100 into The Dubai Mall app within 14 days of purchase to be credited. The process should take no more than a day unless it's for more than $1,000 (approximately AED3,672) in which case it could take longer.
