    So, what's your take on American Express' "pay with points" functionality at I didnt know about it until it had been around for months...then I registered but it didnt seem to stay I reregistered....seems like the conversion price is not a great deal but its ok.

    But, why is just one credit card company linking points to just one merchant? If it makes sense for Amex and Amazon, wouldnt it make sense for everybody? Wait and see I guess...

    I’ve used it when there are discounts off the normal conversion pricing, or an item is on a special Amazon pricing. Over many years had built up a lot of MR points, and just felt like using them. I wouldn’t use them for normal pricing, however.
