TAP Air Portugal Launches Its First U.S. Credit Card, The TAP Miles&Go American Express® Card from Cardless

Cardless, Inc., a San Francisco-based leader in financial technology, and TAP Air Portugal, Portugal’s premier airline, are announcing the launch of the TAP Miles&Go American Express® Card from Cardless.

In recent years, Portugal has emerged as a thriving travel destination capturing the hearts of global travelers with its rich cultural heritage, stunning landscapes, and warm hospitality. This strategic partnership marks TAP’s debut in the U.S. credit card market while expanding Cardless’ global airline portfolio. This exclusive credit card, underwritten by First Electronic Bank, is now available to U.S. consumers through the American Express network.

Cardholders receive 3x miles on TAP Air Portugal purchases, 2x miles on ride-share, hotels and car rentals, and 1x miles on all other purchases. The card has a $79 annual fee, and includes an array of benefits including preferred boarding, 2 TAP Premium Lounge access passes per year, and 2 extra checked bags per year. Additionally, cardholders will earn 1 status mile for every 5 miles earned from spend, 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.

As a signup bonus, cardholders can earn up to 40,000 bonus miles after spending $2,500 in the first 90 days after being approved for the card. And until November 30, 2023, TAP and Cardless are adding an extra 20,000 bonus miles—for a total of 60,000 bonus miles once a cardholder spends $2,500 in their first 90 days.

“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. “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, says that “the launch of the TAP Miles&Go American Express card from Cardless is proof of our commitment to the US market. We are thrilled about this partnership and believe that this card will take the customer experience to another level. It’s my privilege to welcome all aboard this exciting new journey.”

As a member of the prestigious and world’s largest airline alliance, Star Alliance, cardholders not only earn miles but also gain access to an exclusive network of airlines. With Portugal beckoning as a top travel destination, this credit card opens the door to unforgettable experiences for U.S. travelers.
