Good news for our US-based readers. Citi and American Airlines are launching the AAdvantage MileUp card, a new no-annual-fee credit card for consumers. Starting July 22, the AAdvantage MileUp card will offer holders:
- 2 AAdvantage miles for every $1 spent on eligible American Airlines purchases and at grocery stores, along with 1 mile for every $1 spent on all other purchases
- A limited-time offer for new cardmembers of 10,000 AAdvantage bonus miles and a $50 statement credit after spending $500 in purchases within the first three months of opening an account*
Cardmembers who currently have the Citi / AAdvantage Bronze card will also begin earning 2 AAdvantage miles for every $1 spent on eligible American Airlines purchases and at grocery stores, along with 1 mile for every $1 spent on all other purchases made on or after July 22. They will receive the new AAdvantage MileUp℠ card when their current Citi / AAdvantage Bronze card expires.
In addition to the new AAdvantage MileUp card, Citi and American have recently introduced new benefits on certain other cards. As well as providing a free checked bag on domestic itineraries and preferred boarding, these existing cards now have additional benefits:
- Citi / AAdvantage Platinum Select Card: Double miles at restaurants and at gas stations and a $100 American Airlines flight discount after spending $20,000 in purchases during the cardmembership year and after renewal of the card.
- CitiBusiness / AAdvantage Platinum Select Card: Many travel and business benefits, such as double miles at gas stations, on certain telecom and cable spending, car rentals, and 25 percent savings on American Airlines inflight WiFi purchases when using the card.
All Citi / AAdvantage cards include 25 percent savings when using the card for food and beverage purchases on American Airlines flights, and access to purchase presale tickets and VIP experiences for thousands of events each year through Citi Private Pass.
*The AAdvantage MileUp card limited-time offer that allows certain cardmembers to earn 10,000 bonus miles and a $50 statement credit with qualifying purchases will be offered for certain new accounts only by applying through Citi.com, Citicards.com and AA.com, in addition to select partner channels.
