Great way to keep miles active with a no annual fee credit card. Just make a small purchase (gasoline, reload Amazon gift card, etc.) before every 18 months and your AA miles will not expire. The extra 10,000 miles is not great but just an added bonus.

And being a MasterCard, if you are looking to generate some additional spend you can pay your mortgage via Plastiq.

2x grocery on this card is the strongest MS path for AA miles., FWIW.
