Cardless, a US-based fintech company, and TAP Air Portugal have partnered to announce the launch of the TAP Miles&Go American Express Card. 

As per the press release, this partnership is set to mark TAP's debut in the US credit card market while expanding Cardless' global airline portfolio. The credit card, underwritten by First Electronic Bank, would now be available to consumers in the US through the American Express network. 

Moreover, cardholders are able to 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 USD 79 annual fee and includes a variety of offerings including preferred boarding, two TAP Premium Lounge access passes per year, and two extra checked bags per year. Cardholders will also be able to earn one status mile for every five miles earned from spend, up to 10,000 miles per year. This is intended to serve as a fast-track to both TAP Miles&Go Status, as well as Star Alliance silver or gold status.
