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.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.

Do you get a 1099 for this?

according to the wiki TYP is 1.2-1.4 and QF is 1.35-1.45.

Is this outdated? shouldn't they move in tandem?
