Credit Card that earns miles in the UK

I live in the USA

My company just recently opened an office in the UK.

Today they are using a random credit card for company purchases. Obviously I want them to use a credit card that earns mile.

What would be the best CC for them to apply for in the UK that hopefully earns AA miles?

Try The Royal Bank of Scotland. They are the British bank which are associated with AAdvantage. They have a credit card which accures AAdvantage miles at the rate of 1 point per pound.

You can also get a Citibank card in the UK - accumulates the same amount of miles as Royal Bank of Scotland - 1AA mile / pound sterling.
The introductory bonus was 7,500 miles, so may be worth looking at

the AA card offers in the UK kind of stink compared to here. 1 mile per GBP spent is peanuts compared to 1 mile per USD. and on Diners Club it's even worse-- to get 1000 AA miles requires 2000 GBP in spending.

you can always use the US-based card over there, but then you do get hit with the extra Citi transaction fees, so it's about a wash..
