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 am a skymiles member and have flown AeroMexico many times to Mexico and South America for business. I am in a credit rebuilding phase right now so I figured that this will be a good card to earn some miles on an airline that I fly. I have not had the card for a long enough time to comment in detail but so far, the experience has been good.

AeroMexico miles are useful because they are part of the Skyteam alliance and you can book flights with Delta, Air France and other airlines as well. I am a Delta member and wanted a card to help rebuild my credit but Delta does not have a secured card. I chose this card instead and so far the experience has been ok. The sign up bonus is not much (but I don't expect much since it is a secured card). But the annual fee is reasonable. The only problem is that since I don't really fly AeroMexico, I do not know how to make use of their companion ticket!!

Rep told me that the card does not graduate but I intend to get a Delta card eventually anyway.

I have had this card for slightly over 2 years. I got it to rebuild my credit and also because my job takes me to South America. The card has certainly helped me to improve my credit and it is over 700 now. There are some nice things about this card. The annual fee is actually quite low for a secured card and you also get a companion ticket worth $99. I've got mine and used it (you have to work hard to find available flights to redeem this). The card also pays interest on your deposit unlike many secured cards.

However, unlike Cap One secured (which I also have), they report as secured. They also do not graduate and I was told that I have to apply for the unsecured version. I intend to do that and will be canceling the card soon.
