Blog Post on the Benefits of Amtrak Guest Rewards Membership

I recommend anyone commuting via Amtrak to be a Amtrak Guest Rewards member as well as get a Amtrak Guest Rewards World MasterCard. This will allow you to get points for free tickets fast and I felt the Amtrak Rewards program was much more generous when compared to credit cards with airline points. This blog post talks about another Amtrak Rewards advantage - phone calls from Amtak notifying you of canceled trains. Not sure how often an Amtrak commuter will benefit from this since such folks get a montly or a ten trip ticket so there's no way for Amtrak to know which specific train you'll take. Perhaps Amtrak can send out broad communications quickly when there are service interuptions.


  • Thank you for the pointer.

    The phone call the writer received was due to the derailment, not his enrollment in Guest Rewards. The call center would have contacted everyone on the train whose reservation included a phone number.
