LOS ANGELES (Business Wire) -- U.S. Bank and Korean Air, issuers of the SKYPASS Visa ® card, invite customers to apply for the mileage-earning credit card's premium products with a special incentive of 20,000 Bonus Miles for new cardmembers who are approved for the SKYPASS Visa Signature card or SKYPASS Visa Business card.

“The summer holiday season is a perfect time for new card members to join the SKYPASS Visa family,” said John Jackson, vice president of Korean Air passenger marketing and sales for the Americas. “This promotion offers great incentives to customers with travel plans who will benefit from the added SKYPASS mileage earnings they accrue while using the cards for vacation purchases and business travel.”

The SKYPASS Visa card lets members earn miles on all card purchases, and the miles can be combined with SKYPASS flight miles and redeemed for award travel. New cardholders can redeem SKYPASS Bonus Miles for award travel and upgrades on Korean Air and SkyTeam partners. Customers must apply by Aug. 31, 2013, to receive the special offer.

In addition, SKYPASS Visa Signature and Business cards command exclusive features, such as: no foreign transaction fees on card purchases made when traveling abroad, complimentary Korean Air VIP Lounge coupons each year, and Double Miles on Korean Air ticket purchases.
