Would you be able to post the link where you found this information on the Amtrak Guest Rewards website?
I had looked at this page:
and the word "penalty" in section E, paragraph 2, contains a dead link from 2016
Thank you for your help

I am slowly coming to the conclusion that if I am not gunning for AGR status, there is really no reason to have an AGR account at all. I can almost always get a better deal with my Chase Sapphire Reserve Card, and associated travel agent.
