American Airlines loyalists can now earn miles more quickly, thanks to a new, no-fee card from Citi and American Airlines. The American Airlines AAdvantage MileUp card, which is open to new applicants as of July 22, 2018, offers a 2-mile bonus on American Airlines and grocery store purchases and 1 mile per dollar on everything else. Additionally, for a limited time, cardholders can earn a 10,000-mile bonus and a $50 statement credit after reaching the required spend threshold.
According to Valerie Greer, head of co-brand partnerships at Citi, the MileUp card is designed to “help consumers take that dream trip or mini break simply through day-to-day purchases.”
