American Express has launched a new transfer bonus, offering a 25% bonus when transferring Membership Rewards to Aeromexico. That means they transfer on a 1:2 basis, but don’t get too excited – that’s still not an amazing ratio.
- Transfer American Express Membership Rewards to Aeromexico Club Premier and get a 25% bonus.

- Minimum transfer is 1,000 Membership Rewards points.
Membership Rewards usually transfer to Aeromexico on a 1:1.6 basis, so this transfer bonus increases that ratio to 1:2. Amex offered a similar transfer bonus at the end of 2018 and it looks like the SkyTeam award chart is still the same.
Nothing on that list stands out as a particularly stunning redemption option, but the transfer bonus means you might get some OK deals. 40,000 Premier points for a domestic round trip in the low season would require you to transfer 20,000 Membership Rewards points. That might be a good option, but be sure to compare cash prices and other transfer partners as you might have better options elsewhere.
Award Wallet has a good post about potential sweet spots, although there are reports that Aeromexico Club Premier can be a difficult program to work with, so this transfer bonus is probably only worth taking advantage of if you know how to get good value out of it.
