Pros and cons

Pros
  • No annual fee

  • Bonus categories

Cons
  • No free checked bags

  • Rewards have limited flexibility

  • Foreign transaction fee

The American Airlines AAdvantage MileUp℠ Card earns 2 AAdvantage miles per $1 spent on eligible American Airlines purchases and 2 miles for each $1 spent at grocery stores, including grocery delivery services, all for an annual fee of $0.

All other spending earns 1 mile per $1 spent.

Still, the card lacks some of the extras that typically come with co-branded airline cards; most notably, you won’t get a free checked bag, priority check-in or priority boarding. If you tend to fly at least a few times a year, you might fare better with another card.
