Thanks,Forbin and Heyeagle.  AMEX tells me that I can receive $.01 by using my MR points for airfare. I have a Business Platinum card. Perhaps the reimbursement rate differs with other AMEX cards. Does anyone have experience using MR for direct AMEX bookings?

  Yes, that is the same for me.  Not only that, but you get a 20% rebate when you use MR on airfare, which makes it even better.

  Again, this depends on the type of card you have.

  ?

AmexTravel is separate, they don't depend on the card.  They depend that you have MR.
When I went there all I saw was $0.005 per point I had.
And you can get $0.01 on GiftCards, but you must buy at least $1000. (If I remember right)

I'm just pointing out that SAYHEY's posting is a little inaccurate as I've been on the site as recently as 2 days ago and this is what I saw.

  If you have an Amex Business Platinum card, and you book through AmexTravel, you get 1 cent per point redemption rate, plus 20% rebate.

Forbin, I think that you can get $.01 if you buy retail gift cards. If you purchase AMEX cash cards, you get $.005. 

Heyeagle and I are in accordance about the $0.01 for airfare booked with AMEX and the 20% return of MR points. I guess that I'll have to agree to disagree with you.

  Please tell me how to pay $0.01 for travel, I am VERY interested

Here's what I see
$521 or 104,198 miles.

Edit : Oh I see, 20% bonus with the Amex Business Platinum Card.  Honestly I don't think a single card granting that benefit is worth mentioning in a general statement of Amex gives $0.01 for Travel.  I suspect most only get $0.005

rewards2cash has started buying AMEX again as of today.

He must have found away around AMEX's new restrictions
or maybe this was a false alarm and AMEX is not restricting points useage?

Just an FYI, if your Amex card is a No Annual Fee card, you might be getting MR Express which is Different than normal Membership Rewards where you cannot transfer them to airlines (Only can buy things from American Express directly)

No one will trade for MREs. owells.

Anyone tried selling MR points since Amex made the change? I see that rewards2cash says they're taking them but I'm wondering how risky it is.

  Bumping this to the top - have 50k MR coming in a few weeks and also curious on how this will work.  Anyone have any info on any MR point brokers after the change?  Push come to shove I don't mind trying to get a penny a point, but I only got the card with the intention of selling the points off.
