3. MR points value
It can be said that MR value is determined by the airline mileage value can go.From the above examples, MR Exchange air miles can exchange the value of each point at least $0.02, equivalent to $1 on my credit card consumption, get 1MR is equivalent to $0.02 (2% return), that is why we believe that brushing to get MR credit cards cash back cards than brush 1% good reason.Of course, considering that MR itself can turn a variety of air miles, and most airline miles can be an instant account, this gives our mileage is a big convenience …You can look it up, sure no problem turning point immediately after booking, in one fell swoop.Therefore, MR points should be slightly higher than the value can go the distance value of all partners.Furthermore, MR partner contains three aviation alliances: Member of the Star Alliance (ANA,AC), SkyTeam (Delta), OneWorld (BA), equivalent to sweep all of three miles, is also a highlight.Thus, we think every value of MR in $0.02 above.
Of course, points and cash values are different, depending on your needs.If you do not demand for tickets, then MR points don't suit you, you have no need to understand MR system.Also, for each ticket needs people, MR points value is different.First of all, it depends on which route you need is, which airline, such as the route New York-Toronto, BA exchange the value of $0.06, other Exchange three times, then MR you value is very high, you choose to apply for credit card or select a brush which cards you should choose MR.Secondly, the value depends on your Exchange skills, how to check, how to find the customer service to book this need to experience and the accumulation of knowledge.
In a Word, the number you want to play, have fun, or cash back for you.
MR points due to transfer it to air miles, use more flexible at the same time, also needs to be a certain amount of skill.If you are familiar, then the value of MR in your hands will be several times higher than those people who do not use a good, also when your card rewards and credit card cash back is someone else several times.Certainly, MR of source compared limited, main from above in the of open card Award and usually of card, if you think you can harness this a flexible of points, can priority select AMEX Everyday Preferred credit card, its saved points integrated capacity is highest of; while, if you can skilled using gift card cover daily consumption (with MPX APP) or aviation and out dinner of consumption than high, using AMEX Premier Gold Rewards credit card to MR accumulated points is also very fast.
