Here's a snapshot of the Standard Chartered Emirates Platinum:
Skywards Membership and Miles
The Platinum member is automatically enrolled with Skywards, the frequent flyer program of Emirates Airlines (or if you have an existing membership, put in on your application form)Every Rs.150 spent on the card earns the Platinum member 4 Skywards Miles. There is also an option wherein 25, 000 bonus Miles will be issued for a fee.
What this means is that you can get a free round trip to Dubai on approx. Rs.7.5 L spent on the card or if you're like me, upgrades more often! Other benefits include airport lounge access and insurance benefits which seem standard on most other platinum cards offered currently.
If you're an Indian business traveler, chances are you're finding yourself on a lot more Emirates and Etihad flights than 3, 2, 1 years ago. And that trend continues. Mr. Points shows you how to capitalise on this explosion of the UAE as a hub. Credit card and lounge card reviews soon... Subscribe to get the update!
