Getting Amex MR points with a Visa

I just wanted to share this info with anyone who might not know this.

 

If you have a Rakuten account then you can choose getting MR points instead of cash back. Pairing that with the Rakuten Visa card can give you the ability to earn MR points on a Visa.

 

I know other cards can give you better than the 1% on the Rakuten visa, but I think it's nice if you wanna focus on MR points.

Amex Platinum (NPSL); Amex Gold (NPSL); HH Aspire (31.7k); Amex BBP (27k); B&H Payboo (25k); HSBC Premier WMC (14.5k); Rakuten Visa (10k); HSBC Advance (7.5k); HH Surpass (5k); Delta Gold (5k); Nordstrom Store (4k); Apple Card (2.75k); BofA Premium Rewards (2k); USB Altitude Go (1k)

Started collecting cards: Oct/2018
Latest FICO 8: EX (767); TU (774); EQ (769)

I don't qualify yet for the Rakuten Visa but it's definitely in my plans and I'm glad you confirmed this works. I've earned 17,000 MR over the last year from Rakuten purchases and another 4,000 from sign-up and referral, so it's more the 3% on Rakuten itself that interests me.
