It did not work for me either in December!! I presume MPX is dead for Amex!!

As will their PRG be for me before AF because MPX is dead; Have the Ritz/CSR for travel credits that are ALOT more flexible.  I will keep the ED to bank my MR's until I use them.  Sitting on approx 180k MR's, how to best use them for a flight/flights is my goal sometime this year.

Just checked MPX and they will give me 0.5 mile/dollar spent. Lol that's ridiculous. I can buy directly from Amazon with my United Card and get 1 mile.

You could donate those MRs to me, I think that may be best use you could think of right now

For people sticking with United, at least the gift registry still works.

 

I did a mix of bags and MPX for 2016 (I was mostly flying AA with Platinum Select) but am going with Delta for 2017 (bags, lounge guest fees, and maybe a $50 gift card).


Yes, I used the United gift registry method twice in December without a hitch.

I'm sorry to report nothing yet... I'm fairly certain it's dead, but in another few days I'll be willing to call it for certain.  Smiley Sad

Re: 2017 AmEx Travel Credit

Do you know of any other way to exchange those credits for the purchase of electronic devices?

It doesn't sound like many of us use the full credit through natural spend...

Spend: BofA PR + WWFCR, BBP, Schwab Platinum, CFF+CF, Costco, Discover
Perks: IHG49, Hyatt75, Delta Platinum, "Old" SPG95
SD/AAoA Ballast: Arrival, CFU, DC
Upgrade/downgrade games: BCE, EDP
SUB: JetBlue, Amex Platinum
Mostly earning MRs and cash back as I use up hotel and airline points spread across several programs.
