As an update to this topic, it appears that Amex does now offer the refund adjustment to the MEP rate. Check before committing any big sums; I unintentionally tested three small charges which each took a week to come through, so slower than Curve which is the fastest.

One thing which quite a few tourists in Argentina didn’t seem to have worked out is that the special rate works even if, as usual, your hotel is priced in US$ as you are ultimately billed in pesos. The net effect we experienced is that the US$ rate is converted at almost 1.70 which is already a great deal but when added to the already low prices makes it extraordinary.
