All Nippon Airways has released its first U.S.-only mileage-earning credit card — the ANA CARD U.S.A.
The card earns one mile per dollar spent and holders of the card will receive a 10-percent discount on ANA in-flight purchases, a 10-percent discount at ANA duty-free shops, up to 20 percent off stays at ANA hotels and a 10-percent discount at airport shops. In addition, the card carries automatic coverage on rental cars, purchase security, and travel and emergency assistance.
First purchases on the card will earn 5,000 bonus miles, and members who obtain and use the card by Sept. 30 will net an additional 5,000 miles.
Interested Mileage Club members can check out the details online at — you guessed it — http://www.anacardusa.com.
The card is the first offered to U.S. residents by a major Japanese carrier. JAL has been considering a similar card for American Region members, but has yet to finalize the details. The move by ANA will almost certainly force JAL’s hand.
