I have an opportunity to earn 300,000 AMEX MR points per month by using AMEX for payroll. It will cost me $6000 per month. I fly to Israel on United business class 5-6 times per year but AMEX doesn't transfer to United so I can't get value that way. Any other ideas to make it worthwhile?

But good luck with UA I (un)availability to TLV.
Better bet is to sell them, or book stopovers if that passes.

ETA: didn't realize the terrible rate you are acquiring them at, definitely skip it.

You can buy Amex points (into airline miles) for less then 2cpp from brokers, so you're losing value by paying that rate to "buy/earn" them directly from Amex...

Is 1.3 for 110 AA in the wiki still realistic? I usually beat the numbers in the wiki with the contacts I have but having trouble with this one.
