If you’re looking for a great travel credit card, you probably already know that many of the best cards come with steep annual fees. In most cases, these fees are worth it because they come with perks that are worth far more than the cost of the annual fee. Free bag check, priority boarding, discounts on in-flight purchases, passes to airport lounges, concierge service available around the clock—you name it, they offer it.

But sometimes travel credit cards come along that don’t charge an annual fee and still offer good value. A new card from Citi and American Airlines, the AAdvantage MileUp card, is one such credit card. It gives cardholders two AAdvantage miles for every dollar they spend at the grocery store and on eligible American Airlines purchases, plus one mile for every dollar spent everywhere else.

Getting rewarded for everyday spending

Valerie Greer, head of co-brand partnerships at Citi, said the company is taking a new approach to encourage members to use their cards for everyday spending. “We’re excited to be able to offer a different type of credit card in partnership with American Airlines—one that enables cardmembers to earn more miles and travel rewards through trips to the supermarket.”

Greer said Citi wants to help cardholders earn miles toward taking a vacation by putting day-to-day purchases on their credit cards. “Vacations are memory-making experiences, and the AAdvantage MileUp card can help consumers take that dream trip or mini break.”

For a limited time, Citi and American Airlines are offering a sign-on bonus of 10,000 AAdvantage bonus miles and a $50 statement credit when cardholder spend $500 in the first three months of having the card.

Finding the best travel credit card

The key to getting a great travel rewards credit card is having good credit. The best cards, including those with annual fees, are available at the lowest interest rates to folks with a good to excellent credit history.

Whether you are looking for a co-branded card like the AAdvantage MileUp card, or a general travel rewards card that offers miles or points that can be used on any airline, a good credit score will increase the chances that your application will be approved. Then you’ll be that much closer to the vacation of your dreams.
