I'm a UR sort-of guy, but I had to subpoena Amex statements once that had >700k MR points accumulated.

I'm pretty close to hitting my goal of a million mr points.

Hoping to hit that milestone this year.

LOL thanks. There are still quite a few places that do not accept the card. Visa IMO is still king of acceptance.

Amex has in the past few years though made strides in trying to level the playing field.

If you have that many points, you need to start using them!

Not many, because I always use some once I hit around 40-50K of them. My girlfriend and I took a short flight 2 weeks ago and I paid with points entirely. Now I want to see how many I can save. I always use them for flights.

Amex BCP 21K
Amex SPG 5K
Barclaycard Arrival Plus WEMC 5K
Chase Sapphire Preferred 23.5K
