Our Take
Our Take

This secured card is specifically targeted at frequent flyers of AeroMexico Airlines who have no credit or bad credit and cannot get their regular unsecured credit card. Since this secured card is also an airline affinity card, it comes with benefits that are more commonly found in airline credit cards than regular secured credit cards.

On US Bank's website, it says that after 12 months of managing your credit obligations" responsibly, you may be offered to graduate to a regular AeroMexico Visa unsecured card. It also says that you have to print the application form and mail in either a money order or cashier's check along with the application form. This is slightly different from other issuers where you just submit your details online.

This appears to be a decent card and will suit those who fly with AeroMexico. Tip: You should put in enough of a deposit to pay for any airline tickets.

I was pretty excited when I got this card because of the features that came with it. But I have only run into disappointments. Firstly, the free checked bag does not work if you flex to Mexico! Was told it only works if you fly to Central or South America! If you ask me, I think this is the most ridiculous thing. Secondly, I have not been able to use the companion ticket like someone else here has posted. Customer service of both AeroMexico and US Bank are clueless.

I was seriously considering getting the unsecured version (either through graduation or just applying) when my credit gets better. But I am now having second thoughts.

The features advertised on this card are a joke. I don't about everyone else but I have never been able to use the $99 companion ticket. Seems like both Aeromexico and US Bank reps are not aware of it. I have never been successful with the checked bag also. It really looks like no one is aware of these features that the card offers. It is really misleading.
