Amtrak Guest Rewards Signup Referral Thread

Moderator's Note:

Please do not post your e-mail address in this thread. Doing so will likely delay your post as it will be held for review by a moderator.

The proper method is to post request for referral. A fellow FlyerTalk member will contact you via Private Message on the forum asking for your e-mail address. Once you reply with that information, the FT member will send the referral.

Yes, it is a bit convoluted but your post stays out of the moderation queue and it keeps your e-mail address private from search and spam crawlers.

Thank you.

Let's start a new thread and make it clear from the beginning.

Post here if you want a referral.

Just a post saying "need referral" then wait for the PM, send your email address by PM, and await referral email.

There are no "Enrollment Codes" active as of January 2012, so don't waste your time looking around for one right now. You can signup all on your lonesome and still get 500 points without any "Enrollment Code". All this thread does is make sure while you are getting your 500 points that an existing member does too. A referral "gifts" 500 points to the person giving it. I did it when I signed up, because it's the right thing to do. Let someone take advantage of the promotion for that, then if you have the time come back and offer a referral. I got a referral, then later handed one out.

I consider it courteous if FT regulars who "bag" a referral wait 1 hour before pouncing on the next one.

Your fellow Amtrak GR compatriots thank you for your support.

Happy trails!

Isn't that kind of how the existing AGR Referral thread works?

I found the existing thread confusing. It doesn't make clear within the first page, that there is no enrollment code. There is no special bonus for the recipient of the referral. A new account can get 500 points without a referral AFAICT. Forgive my interruption, and either ignore the thread or perhaps a moderator can delete it.

Link for 750 points

Do not know if targeted but I got email today with a link for 750 points for someone who signs up for AGR.

PM me for link if you want it and I will send it to you.
Cannot see a way to refer someone and still allow them to get the 750 points.
So this will go down as an almost altruistic moment

I also got an e-mail today even though I already have a Guest Rewards account. They offered me 1000 bonus points; it looks like an embedded enrollment code in the link, although it says that the offer is only valid from the link and expires 3/31/2012. I am also unsure if it is targeted. PM me if you are interested...I am curious to know if this will work for other people.

update

ywlke and I have what we believe to be a code for 1000 points if someone enrolls. We are looking for someone to try it out.
ANY takers PM either of us with your email address and we will give you the code.
I do not feel it should be published at this time while it is proven effective

I looked at a copy of this and note 2 things:

"Because you are already a valued Amtrak customer, we’ve created an exclusive offer to help you reach your rewards even faster. For a limited time, we’ll give you 1000 Amtrak Guest Rewards bonus points when you enroll and travel before March 31, 2012."

They think they are targetting you because you have done some Amtrak business. And:

"Exclusive bonus offer only valid when the enrollment is initiated through the Join link provided in this email. Offer valid for new members only. Travel within 90 days following your enrollment to earn bonus points. Offer expires 3/31/12. "

So they believe you are not an AGR member already. Perhaps the email address they sent it to, is not one that is registered on your AGR account? Otherwise I have to assume it's a marketing effort that fails to winnow their list before sending. The JOIN link definitely takes you to a new-account creation page.

Ah yes but Amtrak accounts are technically separate from AGR accounts. I use the same e-mail address for both, so it is most likely triggered by the Amtrak account. Even though I linked my AGR account to the Amtrak account when they introduced that feature.
