Cardless and TAP Air Portugal, Portugal’s premier airline, are announcing the launch of the TAP Miles&Go American Express® Credit Card. The new airline card is the third of its kind from the San Francisco-based leader in financial technology, joining two LATAM Airlines Mastercard products launched last year. Here’s everything you need to know about Cardless’ latest – and TAP Air Portugal’s first – credit card offer:
TAP Air Portugal Launches Its First U.S. Credit Card
The TAP Miles&Go American Express® Credit Card is the latest offering from fintech Cardless. The card provides lucrative rewards to the dedicated TAP Air Portugal Miles&Go loyalty member – or anyone who flies often and prefers to travel with carriers in the Star Alliance group (including names like Air Canada, Asiana Airlines, Avianca, United Airlines, and more). The card earns the following rewards on eligible purchases:
- 3X miles per $1 on flights & all other purchases from TAP Air Portugal
- 2X miles per $1 on other key travel categories – hotels, car rentals & rideshares
- 1X miles per $1 on all other purchases
The card has a $79 annual fee and includes various benefits such as preferred boarding, 2X TAP Premium Lounge access passes, and two extra free checked bags per year. Additionally, cardholders will earn 1X status miles for every 5X miles earned from spending, up to 10,000 miles per year. This can serve as a fast-track to both TAP Miles&Go Status, as well as Star Alliance silver or gold status.
A Thriving Travel Destination
Portugal has emerged as a popular destination thanks to its warm and sunny climate, delicious cuisine, stunning natural beauty, and affordability. The country became a haven for digital nomads during the COVID-19 pandemic and that popularity remains – so much so that the strategic partnership with Cardless to launch an airline credit card with Portugal’s flag carrier, TAP Air Portugal, made perfect sense.
“With Portugal growing as a popular travel destination, we are delighted to partner with TAP Air Portugal, a renowned name in the airline industry, to unveil this credit card to the U.S. market,” said Michael Spelfogel, President and Co-Founder of Cardless, in a press release. “This partnership underscores our commitment to delivering innovative, rewarding, and seamless financial solutions that empower consumers to explore the world.”
Sofia Lufinha, TAP’s Chief Customer Officer, added that “the launch of the TAP Miles&Go American Express card from Cardless is proof of our commitment to the U.S. market. We are thrilled about this partnership and believe this card will take the customer experience to another level. It’s my privilege to welcome all aboard this exciting new journey.”
