1.1-1.15...
Grab the 1.15 if you can get it, 1.1+ is a good unusual rate in this enviroment

Less
Thatís obviously ridiculous, you can cash them out with Schwab for 1.1 or possibly more with a BP so it canít go less than that. Are you trying to keep the market low for some reason?

brokers pay 1 cent pp for Amex.
I guess the reason is because not everyone has a Schwab or BP
