Upgrade to CSR and it will be worth 1.5 towards purchases in grocery stores, home improvement stores and dining establishments.
If it benefits even just one fellow DDFer, its worth posting it.

I finally went with the Amex Platinum Schwab .0125 AmEx redemption
I am sitting on a lot of points and can't get better value nowadays
Signed up for the Platinum card right after opening the Schwab brokerage and checking account
So AmEx @ .0125 per point it is

How does the Schwab redemption work? Do you need that Amex card and a Schwab account?
