Editors Review

Pros

  • first-year annual fee is waived
  • reports to major credit agencies as unsecured card
  • 24 days grace of period
  • unsecured card can be offered after 12 months
  • $99 Companion Certificate on a card renewal
  • free first bag checked

Cons

  • APR is a bit high

Verdict

Very interesting offer and sits on the top of the list of our secured cards. It is rare that you will find a secured card with no first-year fee, modest second year fee, sign up bonus and up to 2x rewards rate. And when you see a free checked bag and a companion certificate you start forgetting that it is a secured card, not a Gold travel rewards offer.

Only high APR can distract you from that dream but we keep saying that secured cards should not be used for carrying a balance.

You can redeem your Air Mexico Club Premier Miles for travel with Air Mexico or transfer them to other SkyTeam member air carriers. The value of those miles is approaching 2 cents each, which is very good.
