If you are a Select Executive member of the Amtrak Guest Rewards frequent travel loyalty program, you no longer need to visit an Amtrak station to use your coupon for an upgrade in 2013.
“Select Executive coupons will have personalized tracking numbers that allow for a fully paperless transaction”, said FlyerTalk member AGR Insider, who is an official company representative for Amtrak.. “As a result, physical coupons will not be mailed to Select Executive members; instead, the member’s available coupons may be viewed or printed on the Amtrak Guest Rewards web site. Station agents can also accept the new print-at-home coupons, and will continue to process all traditional coupons as they have in the past.”
The following Select Executive member coupons will be issued in this new format for 2013:
- Select Executive tier welcome kit upgrade and companion coupons
- Select Executive Earned Upgrades — one issued for every 3,000 TQPs earned during the year
- The 5-packs of upgrade coupons obtained when a Select Executive member redeems 10,000 points
FlyerTalk members are happy with this news, but wonder why only Select Executive members will enjoy this new way of redeeming upgrade coupons.
