    I think I already know the answer but want to confirm before I pull the trigger... If I book a trip and pay with AR points, Amex is just converting them to $ to buy the tix, correct? So I should still earn airline miles...

    You will earn airline miles, but they are only giving you one cent per point toward payment. you might be ahead to transfer to an airline and use the miles for a ticket.
