I just received an email from Amex, saying that MR points can now be used at checkout at An initial click on the registration page shows that the conversion rate is £4.50 per 1000 points, with a minimum redemption of 1000 points. This works out at a rate of 0.45p per point, which in my opinion is a poor redemption rate. You can usually get at leas 1p per point (and in most cases a lot more) by using airmile or hotel point conversions.
It might be useful though if you have a few points lying around and you are about to close an MR account (presumably for churning?), as I am always buying things on Amazon.

Verdict: Don’t buy
