are MR points as reliabe as SPG points? Meaning cant they just devaluate them instantaniosly like citi thank you points did?

Yes, they are a stable currency IMHO. AMEX has too much good will on the line to pull a cheap shot like what Citi did.

2 readers have emailed me that they got 30,000 AMEX MR points after signing up for the AMEX Premier Rewards Gold Charge Card and spending $1,000.

It's only supposed to be 15,000 points

Has this happened to anyone else?

Yes, I signed up for this card about two months ago and I have received 30,000 MR points. When I check it out, it shows me that there is a welcome bonus of 15,000 and another 15,000 with FIRST PURCHASE (i did not spend $1000 yet on the card).
Do you think that I will be able to receive an additional 15,000 bonus points once I spend $1000 in three months?

I just signed up. What is strange is that if you pretend to close put the page, a box pops up saying that if you sign up, you will get 10k with the first purchase....and then 15k after spending 30k in 3 months...

The regular app page says its 15k after spending 1k in 3 months...something doesn't make sense

Yes, Amex in my account summary describes the points earned as follows:

15K MR Points w/first purchase
15,000 rewards premier welcome

These points posted within two weeks of card activation.

I just signed up for the card last month and I have since spent more then $1,000. I am waiting to see if I get an additional 15,000 for spending more then $1,000 in the first three months. when I originally signed up. I will post again if this happens. I also have 3 other Amex cards, so if you have other Amex reward cards don’t cancel just apply for this one and i believe you can transfer Amex points from one card to another.

are amex MR points good for anything?

Yes!  I use them for a 1:1 transfer to other programs.  For example, my 30,000 bonus points are going to be transferred to Continental for 30,000 miles, which just so happens to be enough for a round trip ticket to Cancun.  Check out www.membershiprewards.com for more.

I had seen the 30,000 points posted to my account last week. Yesterday when I checked, they were gone!  I called and the agent told me that he saw it as pending until the end of this billing cycle.  I hope I still receive them.  It seems that they've caught the error! Should I still attempt to reach 1000 in spending?

Is anyone else noticing the points were posted and now disappeared??

Try calling MR and ask if you pay the statement now can the 30,000 points be posted to your account immediately so you can transfer them to an airline.

Thanks for the advice.  i tried calling today and they said that regardless of when I pay, the points will be applied at the end of my billing cycle. 

Anyone else notice that their miles disappeared?
