Just called for the umpteenth time trying to get my point balance updated correctly! I talked with an agent,Bev, who seemed to be on the ball!!!! I'm 554 points from "Select Status", is that such a big deal that I go and spend that much time and $ to get whatever "Select" offers?

If you lived else where than where you do, or if you traveled Amtrak a bit more than you do, I'd probably say Yes. Go for it.

But because of where you live, I'm not so sure that it's worth the added expense to get a few one hour upgrade to either business class or first class coupons, as well as a few coupons that will get you into a Metropolitan Lounge or a Club Acela loune.

Now that said, the 25% point bonus could still be useful, if you plan to travel on Amtrak considerably in the new year. But if not, then you probably don't want to go spend another $250 or so, just to get the rest of the points you need.

Of course if you have some real reason to travel, that's a horse of a different color.
Alan,

Take care and take trains!

All Right,
My AGR Points are up to date! That little lady held up her side of the bargain. She said she'd take care of it pronto, and she did!!! Wish I could reach out & thank her! I may be taking that loophole after all!

Called today Alan trying to get some points from the Gathering. I must be on the B list as the agent gave me 215-856-7708 as their fax number. I think I like yours better. :cool:

Well that info was correct for Carlson, the old contractor for AGR. It is possible that they've since changed things.

However, I do find it interesting that the area code is 215, as that's the Philly area. I was under the impression that the bulk of the new AGR agents were in California.
Alan,

Take care and take trains!

I've had to mail in a couple of ticket stubs to AGR lately, and their address has indeed changed. It is now in Philadelphia.

You're correct. IIRC, the call center is in Riverside, CA.

Take the train instead and enjoy the ride!

Hi - quick question.
So is the new PA address below indeed the correct one to send a complaint about AGR?
I have spent about 1 hour on the phone across a few days with as many agents trying to get one thing resolved.
Thanks!
-- Jackietakesthetrain (because I am too lazy to remember my AUF password!!!)

Oh -- is a snailmail letter better than a faxed letter?

Hi -- Any recommendation on what method would get a better response to a complaint regarding missing points? Snailmail to PA Or fax?
Thanks!
-- Jackie

I don't know, but I may say snail mail.

BTW: Area code 215 is Philadelphia, and area code 951 is Riverside, CA (where the call center is located)!

Thanks, Traveler. I just got off the phone again with AGR Select Customer Service. It is the 6th time I have called in one week.

Here is the problem -- I made a reservation through USA-RAIL and gave my husband and mine's AGR#s. I had to cancel the reservation and re-book for a different train, and I asked if our AGRs #s would be on the new reservation and agent said yes. We completed our travel and I wanted to see to see if our points posted, so I went to look and guess what -- no points! I completed the missing points request form and 2 more weeks passed -- still no points.

I finally called AGR and was on hold for 30 minutes and gave all information and was told points would post in 3 days. They didn't. I called back again (on hold for 20 minutes!) and gave them all the information again and was told to check back in 3 days. This time MY points posted but not my husband's. I called back 3rd time and gave information to an agent and she said she would take care of it. I went to look online and she put them in but under *WRONG* ticket number (for ticket that I had cancelled.) I called back 4th time and I was told that earlier agent had used a "short form" to put in points and that she and her supervisor would have to put in his points manually and that they would call me today. (right on a Sunday..). So I checked this a.m. and no points on my husband's account. I called again this morning and agent in PA said she would email CA office for supervisor to call me. After waiting 4 hours, I decided to call back and spoke with supervisor in CA who told me that he was going to have to post "fake" points to my husband's account and then push through the request for the original points and then remove the fake points because they have to put points on a traveler's account that actually corresponded to travel. HUH?????? So basically, he put the points on to shut me up -- but if those points aren't there, I am going to have to call back anyway!

Needless to say I have this supervisor's name, phone number and I will am drafting a letter to AGR.

This is absolute nonsense. Honestly.

I have put up with a lot of crap from Amtrak over the years, but this takes the cake!

So a letter I will write.

Those "new hours" have been in effect since AGR was moved in-house a couple of years ago.  That message has not been updated in a long time.
