INCREASED: Emirates & Etihad Credit Card Signup Bonus

Emirates, Etihad and Qatar Airways regularly fight for the top spot in terms of the becoming the “best Gulf carrier” or “World’s best airline”. Currently Qatar Airways hold the number one position, mainly due to their unrivaled on-board bar with lounge area (soon to be out trumped by Emirates with their redesign from July 2017). Emirates and Etihad have now launched very similar credit card promotions on both free and annual fee cards. If you are just starting to collect miles with either of the airlines, or looking to easily increase your mileage balance, these credit cards could be an easy way of bringing you nearer to your redemption goal. The Emirates and Etihad credit card signup bonuses have been increased to offer up to 25,000 Emirates Skywards miles or 15,000 Etihad Guest miles respectively.
