MBNA has announced the launch of a new reward credit card after teaming up with United Airlines.

The deal provides an incentive through the Unlimited Mileage Plus scheme, with customers earning points by making purchases as well as using the card at hotels and renting cars.

Those who sign up by the end of April will receive two miles for each £1 spent for the first six months, with this reverting to the standard one mile for every £1 after the initial period.

Gred Reed, of MBNA, said the firm is "delighted" with the partnership, adding: "Cardmembers can earn Mileage Plus miles with both United and their partner airlines, so this card programme is of real benefit to frequent travellers."

The Unlimited Mileage Plus American Express credit card carries a typical rate of 15.9 per cent, with zero per cent on purchases for the first three months and on balance transfers for the first 12 months.
