Amtrak has refreshed its signature credit card with some exciting new perks.
Here’s what you need to know!
The Amtrak Guest Rewards® Preferred Mastercard® was relaunched back in October 2022 through First National Bank of Omaha (FNBO).
Now, Amtrak is launching a limited-time promotion for the card: a whopping 30,000 Amtrak Guest Rewards bonus points after making at least $2,000 in purchases within the first 3 billing cycles of your account opening. Typically, Amtrak Guest Rewards points range in value from about 0.8 to 3 cents per point, which makes this bonus worth around $240 to $900.
This welcome offer ends on Wednesday, December 6, 2023.
Amtrak points can come in handy, especially if you’re traveling along the East Coast, as prices on the Acela Express can be as much as $300 one-way, particularly for last-minute travel.
So, if you’re a frequent Amtrak rider, you should consider opening the Amtrak Guest Rewards Preferred card, which charges a [up cc_id=334372 name="amtrak-guest-rewards-preferred-annual-fee-number"] annual fee. You’ll get all the perks mentioned above, plus:
Amtrak has another credit card, the Amtrak Guest Rewards® Mastercard®, which has a [up cc_id=369257 name="amtrak-guest-rewards-annual-fee-number"] annual fee. This card offers 2x points spent on Amtrak travel (including onboard purchases), 2x points spent on dining, and 1x points for all other purchases.
This is excellent news for casual riders and Amtrak Guest Rewards loyalists alike, especially considering how difficult it is to earn Amtrak points, as the program doesn’t partner with a major credit card issuer. If you want to earn Amtrak points and receive perks such as lounge access, make sure to take advantage of this offer before it expires on December 6!
