The Citi Platinum Select AAdvantage Visa Signature Card is a mouthful, but well with the time it will take you to say its name. Citi offers an excellent sign-up bonus: 30,000 miles after spending $1,000 within your first three months of opening an account. You’ll earn 1 mile per dollar on nearly all purchases, and 2 miles to the dollar when you purchase with American Airlines. While there’s a $95 annual fee, it’s waived for the first year. Other benefits include:
You don’t need to only redeem your hard-earned miles on American Airlines flights either–they’re part of the Oneworld Alliance, which includes British Airways, Cathay Pacific, LAN, Qantas, and many others.

With that in mind, this is a great card to have in your repertoire–there are enough other cards without foreign transaction fees and lower interest rates that you can combine cards to get exactly what you need.
