Citi and American Airlines are launching a new rewards card for frequent travelers. The AAdvantage MileUp card offers two miles per $1 spent at grocery stores and on eligible American Airlines purchases, plus one mile per $1 for all other purchases.
The card has no annual fee and comes with a 10,000 point bonus offer plus a $50 statement credit after spending $500 in the first three months. There is no mileage cap for the MileUp card, and cardholders can save 25% on in-flight food and beverage purchases.
Members who have the AAdvantage Bronze Card will be upgraded to the MileUp card when their current card expires. However, they can begin earning the enhanced rewards of the MileUp card on July 22. The current rewards program only offers one mile for every $2 spent on the card.
Interested applicants can apply online starting July 22, 2018.
Citi has recently enhanced the rewards on two other airline credit cards. The Citi/AAdvantage Platinum Select Card has double miles at restaurants, gas stations and American Airline purchases as well as a $100 American Airlines flight discount after spending $20,000 in purchases during the cardmembership year and after renewal of the card. The business version of that card, the CitiBusiness/AAdvantage Platinum Select Card, offers double miles on car rentals, fuel purchases, select telecommunications purchases and eligible American Airline purchases.
