Yes, your Aeromexico Premier Points do expire 24 months from the date they were earned — unless you have accrual activity on your account. Per the Aeromexico accrual FAQs page:

“Your Puntos Premier expire after 24 months with no accrual activity.”

If you do let your Aeromexico points expire, you can have them reinstated. However, it’s not cheap.

Ways to Keep Your Premier Points Active

There are lots of ways to earn Aeromexico Premier Points and keep your balance active, including:

Redemption activity does not count towards resetting your points validity clock. Similarly, transferring points between a family group does not count towards resetting the expiration deadline on your Premier Points.

Reinstating Expired Aeromexico Premier Points

Aeromexico lets you reinstate your expired premier points for a fee. However, this is not open-ended. You can only reinstate points that have expired in the last 12 months.

Reinstating your points isn’t cheap, costing $9 per 1,000 points plus an additional 400 pesos/~$20 administration fee. Considering the expense of reinstating your points, you are better served in most cases by staying well on track of your points’ expiration deadline and either using your points or earning some more to keep them from expiring.

Boosting Your Premier Points Balance

If you are a few points shy of a redemption, you have many options, including transferring points from 4 of the 5 major flexible points currencies. You can transfer all of the following points to Aeromexico Club Premier.

  • American Express Membership Rewards points transfer at a ratio of 1,000:1,600.
  • Citi ThankYou points transfer at a ratio of 1:1
  • Capital One Venture Miles transfer at a ratio of 1:1.
  • Marriott Bonvoy points transfer at a ratio of 3:1 — with a 5,000-point bonus for transferring 60,000+ Bonvoy points
  • Brex Cash points transfer at a ratio of 1:1.

By far, the best value here is to transfer Membership Rewards points to Aeromexico. Even though the transfer can take between 24 and 48 hours, the transfer ratio more than makes up for the slow transfer speed.

Our Take

Although Aeromexico does not have the most generous expiration policy, the program is still worth considering. You have a host of ways of keeping your points active virtually indefinitely, including taking a domestic flight with Delta in the US. with that in mind and some great sweet spots and redemption options, Aeromexico Club Premier is definitely worth keeping in mind, especially if you are a frequent traveler to Latin and South America.
