Chester, UK (PRWEB) April 14, 2010 -- MBNA today announces the launch of a new credit card in conjunction

Card.

The card offers a competitive rate of interest plus a range of unique rewards through the exclusive American

 When signing up to the new product, every customer spending £250 within the first 90 days of opening an
account will receive a sky high 5,000 AAdvantage® bonus miles2.

 By using the new AAdvantage® credit card, customers will earn three AAdvantage® miles for all supermarket,
petrol and American Airlines purchases within the first six months of the account opening3.

 Other card purchases or purchases made after the first six months will earn 1.5 AAdvantage® miles for every £1
spent4.

 The card will offer 0% on all American Airlines flights purchased with the card for 12 months from the date the
account is opened5, and customers will be eligible for a range of exclusive promotions throughout the year.

 The new American Airlines AAdvantage® American Express credit card offers 0% on balance transfers and
money transfers for six months from the date the account is opened (as long as they are made within 90 days of
the account opening. A 2% handling fee applies to both).

After the introductory period the card will revert to a typical rate of 17.9% APR (variable).

 Maria Sebastian, vice president of Sales & Marketing EMEA, American Airlines, commented: “Having been the
first airline to introduce the concept of frequent flyer loyalty programmes back in 1981, American Airlines is
delighted to have teamed up with MBNA to introduce its new co-branded AAdvantage® American Express UK
credit card. The card provides an outstanding proposition in terms of value and rewards, both in the introductory
phases and on an ongoing basis. Existing AAdvantage® customers will benefit from a new method of seeing their
miles accumulate faster with their normal everyday spending, while new AAdvantage® members will enjoy the
excellent mileage accrual rates that will help them on the path to the many great rewards on offer.”

 Greg Reed, chief marketing officer for MBNA, said: “This is a product that will be of real benefit to frequent
travelers. The rewards programme is comprehensive and wide-ranging, and we are delighted to have teamed up
with American Airlines and American Express to develop a product that provides real added value for
customers.”
