A number of weeks ago I booked a trip to San Antonio for mid October figuring to land in double days so enjoyed seeing the email arrive myself.

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.

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?

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.

Registered as soon as I received the email. Then received a second email today reminding me that the promotional travel period starts tomorrow.

I'm wondering, is it possible to book a trip that falls under double days, get the extra points, and then modify the reservation to a later date that won't fall under double days? Is the system sophisticated enough to catch that and "take back" half the points?

That's not possible. The points aren't issued until after travel, and I believe the ticket has to be lifted in order for points to post.

I see. So if Amtrak doesn't scan my ticket (which happens pretty often), I won't get points?

Tickets will often be lifted without being scanned, especially if you're traveling in sleeper. The attendant often just tells the conductor who's on and the conductor lifts tickets based on that.

Thanks. I was starting to freak out because I'm pretty sure our ticket wasn't scanned in February when we took a Family Bedroom from Pomona to Chicago, followed by a Roomette to New York. That would have been a lot of points to miss out on...
