Aloft Dubai South

Aloft Dubai South

As both hotels are not in the best locations, I will not value these complimentary nights for what they are worth in cash. Considering the fact that I am also not able to choose which hotel I would like to stay in, I will value these two nights at a total of $150.

With this promo fare, you will be booked into fare class ‘T’. Click here for a list of Frequent Flyer Programs that you can credit this flight to. I recommend Alaska Airlines for about 3,630 miles (worth $80) as a basic member.

Which card to use?

I recommend using GrabPay Mastercard (after topping up with Citibank Rewards Visa) or DBS Woman’s World Mastercard for 4 miles per dollar. This gives you around 2,060 miles (worth $37).

Conclusion

While Emirates is calling this an “amazing deal”, this fare barely counts as a good deal. However, it is a great deal when you look at what you are getting for $516:

  1. 2 free hotel nights worth $150

  2. Credit to Alaska Airlines for 3,630 miles (worth $80)

  3. Click through Rebate Mango for $49

  4. Use GrabPay Mastercard for 2,060 miles (worth $37)

That is right, you will get $316 worth of goodies on top of a fare that is already good! I say go for it.
