30% Bonus on Points Purchase through 3/31

Amtrak are offering a 30% bonus on the purchase of points through 3/31. Max purchase per account is 10k per annum, with bonus allows for 13k.


Makes it quite a deal if purchasing for 1,000 point special routes.

Best,

fw

Don't forget the impending devaluation. I certainly will never buy points again.

Devaluation of 33%, bonus of 30%. That 3% gap makes all the difference!

Roomette awards are not going up, so someone (clearly not you, as you seem to be soured on AGR) could buy points under the bonus and apply them to a roomette and still enjoy the effective bonus.
