The Aeromexico Club Premier Round-the-World Award

The Aeromexico Club Premier Round-the-World Award

One of the most compelling aspects of an airline loyalty program is when you’re able to book a round-the-world trip using points. In some cases, you can get incredible value, as long as you’re daring enough to learn the ins-and-outs of the program and how to maximize it.

Some examples of this include a Star Alliance option with ANA Mileage Club and Oneworld multi-carrier award charts in British Airways Avios and Cathay Pacific Asia Miles.

Today, we’ll hop over to the SkyTeam alliance for a close-up look at the intriguing Aeromexico Club Premier round-the-world award.

Earning Points with Aeromexico Club Premier

Before looking at redeeming Aeromexico points for a round-the-world trip, we first must consider the best ways to earn Club Premier points.

There are essentially four ways to accumulate points within the Aeromexico program: Marriott Bonvoy, Amex US, Capital One Venture Miles, or Citi ThankYou Points.

Marriott Bonvoy points can be transferred to Aeromexico at the usual optimal ratio of 60,000 Bonvoy points = 25,000 Aeromexico Club Premier points. This can be a reasonable way of earning if you have a large stash of Bonvoy points (and a high-value Aeromexico round-the-world award within your sights), but the reality is that your Bonvoy points can often be redeemed at better value for hotel stays.

Instead, it’s better to consider transferring Amex US MR points, Capital One Venture Miles, Citi ThankYou Points to Aeromexico Club Premier. Amex US MR points transfer over at a ratio of 1:1.6, while Capital One Venture Miles and Citi ThankYou Points transfer over at a ratio of 1:1.

If you’re a Canadian with access to Amex US, remember that as long as you have a single Amex US MR credit card (like the Amex US Gold Card, the Amex US EveryDay Card, or the Amex US Business Platinum Card), you may transfer your Canadian Amex MR points over to the US at the prevailing exchange rate once every year.

For Canadians, this would probably be the most feasible way to rack up points with Aeromexico: transferring Canadian MR points over to the US, and then transferring those points into Aeromexico at a 1:1.6 ratio.

The Rules
