Zync now earns mr points instead of mre?

Got an email from amex today about a change to the zync rewards program. The email was titled an important update about your rewards program.

 

I've copied and pasted it below with personal info omitted. When I click on the link it takes me to a mr rewards page. No mention of mre points at all in the link. Maybe I'm reading too far into it, but at first glance it looks like zync now accrues full mr points.

 

Anyone else get something like this?

The MR points are better for redeeming travel right?

Its definitely not my area of expertise, but I'm fairly sure mr points have a significantly higher redemption value for travel than mre.

I guess I missed that part of the disclosure. Oh well, mr points would've been nice.
