So itís probably not even worth it to sell if you can just open a Schwab card.. no risk or hassle from Amex for a .05 spread

I mean it depends how many MR per dollar you are earning. If just 1 ppd, then it's worth it to use a 2%+ card vs earning+selling MR

How does this work compared to selling MR?
If you own a Schwab Platinum card, you can deposit your points directly into your Schwab brokerage account for a value of .0125 cpp at any time. Cash, immediately withdrawable. Also allowed and sanctioned by Amex. So simple and painless compared to selling points, with all the hassles of transferring, allowing account access, adding users, payments, trust, privacy issues, etc. plus risking Amex's wrath.
depends on the size of account
I guess so. I have an account with well over 600K MR in it and I'm strongly considering going the Schwab cash-out route. Just so easy and painless and risk-free.

Where can I get 720,000 MT for $4,300?
You're not going to get that from a broker, you need to buy at that price directly from a consumer
