Just curious how widespread this is. I used to be a Select Plus member, but my Amtrak travel has dropped off to almost 0 especially on paid fares. Now that the AGR points are gone I haven't been traveling much at all. I just got the email below today. I do have a reservation on the books that will qualify, so pretty nice little gift. Just wonder if I am the only one?
