Grrrr Amex pulled off the Groupon gift cards from MR... Amex points are becoming useless with less and less merchants allowing redemption of 100pts=$1

I have my Corp Amex and the schwab Amex. Link the accounts and you can cash in your work points. More than makes up for cost of the card

that was good because amex points for gift cards are the worst redemption. airline transfer partners are the best

When you have millions of miles, i dont need to transfer more miles. I found that 1% “cashback” via gift card was a decent deal

Zappos is still $1/100pts

@MCK1 - we have to use the regular Amex Corporate for our expenses unfortunately

I don’t think you can ever have enough miles....

EY1 - they depreciate fast, so no point of piling them. I likes Groupon giftcard as i could purchase local stuff to do, eat, etc...

I get it, that’s why I usually leave them in the transferable part. I easily blow through 600k a year and it’s not enough. 😂😂😂

1 cpm on Amex points is pathetic

You should be getting at least 1.5 from points transfers. Do your homework people

EY2 - what else is higher besides miles?
