Earn another 152 points on the CSP and transfer to United. You receive 1.68 cents of value per point that way. You only receive 1.25 cents per point if you use them to cover the cash cost of the flight.
EDIT - Ok - I lied. No saver awards from SAC-SJU in June.
So, CSP points are worth 1.25 cents for travel. MR points are only worth 1 cent.
I suggest you book through UR, use the points, and pay the remainder with the CSP. You'll spend all your points, pay about $217 out of pocket, and earn 651 points back. (You get 3 points per dollar on the amount you spend - 2 for "travel", one for going through UR.)
With the Amex, you'll pay the $840 up front, earn 2520 MR points (3x airfare), and redeem 35,000 points for $350 back. That's $490 out of pocket and a remaining balance of 2865 points.
