I was just reminiscing on the popular "Zync is gone" topic, and thought about the Membership Rewards Express point system as opposed to the standard MR pt values- then I began to creep on the standard Amex Blue (not the cashback blue versions, rather the standard MR Blue, in the charge cards category) and could have sworn they used to only be capable of MRE points, not MR. Now it seems as if it's redeemable for normal MR point values?
Was that the case? Did they 86 the MRExpress? I know there were only a couple cards at the time that, by themselves, could only net he/she Express points, not the standard-more-powerful MR points.
Alongside that, what IF those who still have a Zync are able (or will soon be able) to redeem at normal point values (and/or transfer to participating airline programs)? I have both the Green and Zync currently, so I can't test that personally by looking at rewards options online right now.
Thoughts? Am I nuts for thinking this? Or have I just been gone long enough from the forum that I missed a huge detail (haha)?
