I'll probably get the email when I get home...but good to hear this has popped back up.  I've got at least one, possibly two major trips in that timeframe...so I should draw a nice pot of points out of it.


Amtrak mileage to date: Somewhere between 120,000 and 150,000 miles...I /really/ need to run all of my trips through a calculator sometime.

...and no, I am not /that/ Anderson...;-)

Hrm, I'm in the register-yourself-you-nobody crowd and I couldn't find the e-mail, so I guess I should check which addy the marketing messages are supposed to be going to.

I'm registered. I'm traveling round trip on both the Southwest Chief Chicago to Los Angeles and the California Zephyr Chicago to Emeryville late October to early November and was sure to PAY for these trips hoping for the double rewards points.  Also I need these trips to re-qualify for Select status and they will take care of that although this is not a double tier credits offer.

Is this because I'm overseas?

As long as the travel is between those dates - no matter when you booked your trip - you will get double points!

Sent too soon. Using the AGR mastercard with 3X the points for Amtrak travel and double points its almost as good as AGR 1 where you got 100 points minimum.
