I have roughly 50k Amex MR points from my AMEX Platinum. I am wondering if there is a good way to use these points to book a room in paris for 2 nights (June 19th-June21st) or if there is any other way I can stay at a nice hotel for free (with points)?
@ Kyle — While you can convert the points to SPG, for example, it’s not a very efficient transfer ratio. In your shoes I’d pick up a card which offers a couple of free nights as a sign-up bonus, and keep your Amex Membership Rewards points for a flight, where you’ll get a lot more value out of those points.
