MR Points -> Aeromexico Club Premier

Hey all,

Hoping that someone can help clearing this points transfer confusion for me:

It seems that Club Premier inconsistently quotes things both in KmP (kilometer based) and miles. I have been looking at a one way award in Mexico, and this chart would lead me to believe that it costs 10,000 miles:

http://eu.aeromexico.com/ClubPremier/Rewards/

But my account (which I just opened) seems to be all in KmP and when I search for the flight it tells me that it costs 16,000 KmP (which makes sense given the mile/km conversion). Now the Amex transfer site clearly states that 1,000 MR points = 1,000 Club Premier miles, so does that mean that I get 1,600 KmP or does it basically transfer 1:1 with KmP and short me 600? Neither program knew how to inform me of this before I pull the trigger on the transfer.

Thanks for any info!

Thanks that is helpful!

Seems like it would be 1 -> 1.6 then. What caught my attention was the "each peso or dollar spent...". Those are totally different currencies! Can you get 13X the points with a Mexican card?

This appears to be incorrect. American Express site says:

Quote:
Paga con La Tarjeta y obtén un Punto por cada Dólar Americano que gastes o su equivalente en Moneda Nacional.
...which Google translates as...

Quote:
Pay with Card and get a Point for each Dollar you spend or the equivalent in national currency
