AeroMexico Club Premier Value

Updated January 14th, 2020

AeroMexico’s Club Premier program is a semi-reliable, if otherwise unremarkable loyalty program. After running the numbers, we’re assigning an ACRV of 0.37¢ to each AeroMexico Club Premier mile. This represents an 18% increase in value since last year.

Whenever presenting low’ish valuations, I always like to remind readers what this number means. It’s a discounted average, not a hypothetical best-case. Exact calculation steps are documented on our valuation methodology page.

Unfortunately, despite good award availability, redeeming a Club Premier mile never yielded much value. As shown in the example below, some of the mileage requirements were just obscene.

Although we ended up being disappointed with our hypothetical redemption values, we were impressed with Club Premier’s revamped award booking portal. It’s clean, functional and makes searching multiple days a breeze. It wasn’t all that long ago that a US-based traveler needed to call reservations in order to book award space.

As shown in the table above and the chart below, high-value award redemptions appear to be a bit of a unicorn. Theoretically, one could fly one of AeroMexico’s Dreamliners to Europe or Asia. However, we weren’t actually able to find an open award seat. The best we could do for the month was a business-class seat between Seattle(SEA) and Buenos Aires(EZE). This was offered for 110,000 miles plus $45.10. The lowest priced cash alternative was $2,381, providing a redemption value of 2.12¢.
