It occurred to me after my last comment, your AGR number (if provided) will be on your ticket!

 

BTW, if you have a traveling companion, they should have their own AGR number to get (their) points for their portion of the ticket. If you book two people on a ticket and only you have an AGR number, you only receive the points for your portion of the fare. The companion points, in this case, would be lost. This applies only to the basic rail fare portion. The "accommodation" charge (sleeper) is entirely yours.

You should log in to AGR. From there find the link to refer a new member, and enter your wife's email. If she signs up via the email link and travels within 90 days, you both get 500 bonus points.

I looked on the BOA app on my phone for the Amtrak Guest Rewards Card I have but don't see anything for referring a friend. Can I also get points for referring her for an Amtrak card?

Now this is interesting. My travel agent spoke with AGR again this afternoon and then forwarded an audio copy of the conversation to me. According to her(the AGR representative), because I have the paid Amtrak card I will receive a total of 5 Points in the end for the Amtrak portion that I pay with that card. Can anyone explain that breakdown to me. I expected three points not five.

Two points per dollar from Amtrak; three points per dollar from the AGR credit card.
