Review: AeroMexico Visa Signature Card

If you’re a frequent flier on this airline, the card has some really nice perks.


This post comes from Logan Abbott, editor of the credit cards section of MyRatePlan.com.

The AeroMexico Visa Signature Card offers generous travel rewards for frequent fliers of AeroMexico, as well as some additional rewards to boot.

Advantages

  • Earn double miles. Cardholders earn 2 miles for every dollar spent on gas, groceries and AeroMexico ticket purchases.
  • Earn miles on all purchases. Cardholders earn 1 mile for every dollar spent on all purchases outside of the aforementioned categories as well.
  • Big first-purchase bonus. Cardholders earn 20,000 bonus miles after making their first purchase with the card.
  • Free companion pass when your card application is approved. The card offers a free companion pass upon approval, so that cardholders can bring a friend or family member with them on a future flight on AeroMexico between the U.S. and Mexico.
  • Complimentary lounge access. Cardholders receive complimentary Salon Premier Lounge access.
  • Free checked bag and AeroMexico ticket discount. Cardholders get to check a bag free of charge, and they also automatically qualify for a 15 percent AeroMexico flight discount.
  • Annual fee waived in the first year. There’s an annual fee of $80, but it’s waived in Year One.
  • Renewal bonus miles. Cardholders can earn 4,000 bonus miles for renewing their card each year, and they also receive a $99 Complimentary Companion Certificate with renewal, which means they get $99 off a friend or family member’s round-trip flight from the U.S. to Mexico.

Disadvantages

  • No introductory 0 percent APR offers. The card does not offer an introductory 0 percent APR period on purchases or balance transfers.
  • Annual fee. Although it’s waived in the first year, the card still carries an annual fee of $80.
  • Foreign transaction fee. The card charges a 2 percent foreign transaction fee for transactions made in foreign countries with U.S. currency, and a 3 percent foreign transaction fee for transactions made in foreign countries with foreign currency.

Bottom line

Get it if: You have excellent credit and are a frequent flier of AeroMexico.

Forget it if: You have less than excellent credit, or want a travel rewards card that works for more than one airline.
