If that isn't a concern I'd change to SW, buy gift cards for them, and with your SW companion pass you'll presumably get even more value out of the GCs flying 2 for the price of 1.

Yes it is a Plat business card with the 35% point refund. Thats a pretty sizeable chunk of points (when used that way of course!).
I am thinking I will stay with United till we have all our flights settled for the year (and who knows maybe the gift bank will come back up in the interim and I can be done with this).
Then once I am pretty sure I will have no more united flights to book with Amex, I will change to SW and hopefully the gift card option is still there at that time.
