Best way to redeem MR points for Car Rentals

I am looking to rent a car for a 5-day period in STT. I also have a bank of points on my AMEX Platinum card.

The problem I am having is finding a way to redeem the points for a car rental.

I see only one option: use points to buy a car rental company gift card, then use that towards the rental, with a value of .01 cent per point.

Are there any ways to derive more value for car rentals?

Thank you!
