Guru’s Wrap-Up

The new AAdvantage MileUp is an upgrade when compared to the old AAdvanatge Bronze Card. It comes with a small bonus of 10,000 American Airlines miles and a $50 statement credit. That’s a total bonus of $150-$200, which is not bad at all for a no fee card and only $500 in spending. This is not a card that will excite many readers, but if should draw some casual American Airlines customers who are looking for a no fee card and a way to earn miles.
