Card promises elite rewards for travellers to Mexico??
A new credit card product from US Bancorp is aiming to attract cardholders in the tough economic climate with the offer of “elite” level rewards.
Holders of the bank’s AeroMexico Visa Card (and the AeroMexico Visa Signature Card) will automatically become members of Club Premier, AeroMexico’s frequent flyer programme, which gives them access to other travel benefits like free upgrades and use of the carrier’s Salon Premier airport lounges.
Cardholders will earn one Club Premier mile per dollar spent, which can be redeemed towards travel rewards, plus one complimentary companion ticket from the US to Mexico per year and free access to Aeromexico’s Salon Premier lounges in major airports.
US residents who visit Mexico can earn travel rewards by using the card for their purchases. Miles can be redeemed for travel from 16 US airports served by AeroMexico to more than 40 destinations in Mexico as well as other international destinations, including Buenos Aires, Madrid, Paris, Rome, Tokyo, Sao Paulo and Shanghai.
“The AeroMexico Visa Card offers valuable travel reward opportunities for U.S. residents and business travelers who make frequent trips to Mexico and beyond,” said Pat Coll, executive VP of US Bank Retail Payment Solutions.
AeroMexico claims to operate the largest frequent flyer programme among airlines in Mexico with more than two million Club Premier members around the world. Club Premier membership benefits include bonus miles, free upgrades, free access to Salon Premier lounges in major airports around the world and exclusive promotions.
