From now until November 24, 2016, Emirates is running a promotion with Visa Checkout. Through this offer, you can save on airfare with Emirates when you use the Visa Checkout and the promo code USVISAC. You can get:
- Up to $50 off Economy Fare
- $250 off Business Class Fare
- $1000 off First Class Fare
The code is only valid for roundtrip tickets that depart from Emirates’ US gateway cities, and you can travel beyond Emirates’ Dubai hub. Your trip must fall between October 24, 2016 and July 24, 2017 and you must book at least 7 days in advance. It does not look like the the New York – Milan route is eligible.
For example, I was able to apply the code for this New Y0rk – Dubai flight, which knocks the flight down to ~$785.
The discounts for Business and First Class itineraries are higher in amount, but of course the ticket prices are also many times higher. Still, if you want to fly First Class on Emirates’ new Fort Lauderdale – Dubai flight, you can save $1000 off the roundtrip fare.
You can book your airfare here to take advantage of this Emirates promo, and use the code USVISAC at checkout.
