MileUp Card Benefits

The MileUp card has very few benefits. You do not get free checked bags or priority boarding unlike the American Airlines cards with annual fees. 

25% Savings In-Flight– The MileUp card gets you a 25% savings on in-flight food and beverages on American Airlines flights. 

Citi Concierge– The MileUp card has access to the Citi Concierge to assist you with your travel, shopping, dining, entertainment, and everyday needs. You can contact them at concierge@yourconciergecenter.com or 1-800-508-8930.

Citi EntertainmentCiti Entertainment gets Citi cardholders special access to purchase tickets to thousands of events, including pre-sale tickets, and exclusive experiences.

The Verdict

The Citi MileUp card has very limited benefits, but does earn 2x miles at grocery stores and with American Airlines. Plus a 25% in-flight savings on food and beverage.

I think MileUp card makes the most sense as a downgrade option from the Citi AAdvantage Platinum Select card ($99 annual fee) for people who still want to earn AAdvantage miles (and keep their miles from expiring) without an annual fee.
