AMEX 1099-MISC - who got it?

$650 spread across 3 different 1099-MISC forms (which was really nice) - weird considering I only had referrals from two different cards

Arrived via USPS yesterday

Free money not so free?

Last year's thread is here: AMEX sending out 1099s for referral bonuses

Flyertalk Search doesn't find "1099s" when looking for "1099" .

And I searched "1099 MISC" - anyway, just took advantage and referred P2 for the 25K BGR referral bonus! Half way to a 2020 1099-MISC!

Would it just be a matter of time before even retention bonus MR are taxed as well?

Not if the retention bonus has a spending requirement or requires payment of an annual fee.

What does that work out to as valuation? Same for different products (i.e. MR & Hilton & Skymiles, or did you earn all MRs)? I feel like they should count it as the lowest available return ($0.006 if I spend at Amazon), but I bet they count it higher.

It was all MR - 65,000 MR
