The only US credit card I have had any trouble with is Home Depot. I have been making a new house livable here for the last six months. I went out of my way to get a Home Depot credit card, while still in the USA, only to have it rejected at the Home Depot here in Hermosillo the first time I tried to use it. The Mexican Home Depots apparently have their own cards.
I have not tried to apply for any Mexican credit cards because I know that many, if not most, of them come with high annual "membership" fees and higher than a Boston Blue Blood's snoot interest rates.
From time to time I have trouble with my Costco card/membership. It is actually an American Express credit card with a Costco logo on the back. It ALWAYS works in the USA but from time to time it hiccups here in Mexico. All they do is call one of the management team over to the register (which can take a while) where he does some magic, and VOILA, I am accepted.
