    When I go to my membership rewards page and click on "earn points" I no longer have the option to get to the shopping portal to earn extra points. Is the portal gone? Or is it just I that cannot find it anymore?

    Looks like AmEx is currently "enhancing" their website with even more annoying java script. I tried to open the shopping portal and got an apology message. So I take it to mean that the portal would resume functioning at some point in the future.

    Has anybody heard more about this?

    The AMEX was my preferred online shopping mall. And, I am frustrated that it is out of commission for the moment. The nicest thing was that they were always the easiest to deal with when points didn't post.

    That's good to hear, I was worried it was gone for ever!

    I just got my first Amex card that has Membership Rewards and am new to the whole thing. It seems like the "shopping portal" is still down. Or am I looking in the wrong place?

    It is still down. Amex's contract with the portal provider--which I'm 99% sure was Cartera--has been terminated, so unless they're building a new portal internally or enter into a contract with a different provider, there will be no MR portal again. It's a shame, but it is what it is.

    Figured as much. I noticed that the link has officially been removed as well.

    It is gone, and unlikely to come back.

    If it's been gone this long, I'd be very surprised if it came back. It's gone the way of the AS Mileage Plan online mall. :(

    The AMEX online shopping mall has been disable for awhile and I've been hoping it would come back. I'm now using the Chase shopping mall to earn points though not AMEX points.
