That's subjective depending on the amount of value you get with MR points. But perhaps he just prefers points to cash back.
He mentions the reasons being sign up bonus and Amazon prime membership. Here's the issue. Even if Amex DOES let you PC (which I don't believe they will since one is a cash back card and one is an MR card), it's very unlikely you would get the sign up bonuses offered for new accounts.
Also if you do choose to apply and open up a new account ensure you read the offer carefully. I referred a friend of mine to the EDP and the offer appeared identical to the one on their website with the added bonus of me getting some points for the referral. Unfortunately we came to find out that this offer did not include the free year of prime.
