I have tried booking flights from JFK->PEK but they all seem to be 110,000pts or so. Does anyone know of how to get cheaper flights when booking with AMEX reward points?

Prob a better question to ask at flyertalk. I assume these are amex member rewards points that you could transfer to airlines?

yeah don't want to book directly with point generally- you want to transfer them to a partner- which partner will depend on several factors including where you're going, when you're going, how many are going with you, class of travel you want, etc.... I agree flyertalk will have the most folks who can advise on specifics of your travel plans.
