Citi ThankYou Adds Aeromexico as a Transfer Partner (1:1)

It’s not very exciting to me, but Citi has added Aeromexico as a transfer partner for the Citi ThankYou program. What does excite me, though, and why I think this warrants a post is that it’s great to see Cit continuing to invest in the ThankYou program and working to make it stronger – especially now that we have an official “Citi Trifecta” card combo.

Not exciting to me, because I can’t think of any real sweet spots in the program and seeing this image (below) trying to even take a look doesn’t make me think it’s very easy either, but Aeromexico is a Skyteam partner so it’s potentially useful to some.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

Note that for most things Skyteam, I’d probably prefer to use another Citi partner, Air France Flying Blue, but it could be worth comparing prices if that’s what you were doing (you may have to call Aeromexico for availability.

You can always reference a full list of transfer partners for all four major credit card programs, plus Marriott Bonvoy, at this page: Where can I transfer Chase, Citi, American Express, Capital One and Marriott points?

yottaWhat is Yotta Savings?: The Yotta Savigs account is a really fun way to earn interest at a higher rate than Marcus while having some fun each night when the Yotta prize ball drops. Currently, the statistical odds imply a net savings rate of between around 1% and 3% - at a time when banks like Marcus are offering a paltry 0.5%. Plus, it's fun! | Read my review of Yotta.


I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
