Update on Continental Presidents Club access for Select Plus members

Many thanks...
It's official now. I would print a copy of this email if a particular club is not properly informed:

Dear xxxx,

United ClubSM is the new name for the Continental Presidents ClubŪ and the United Red Carpet ClubŪ. Amtrak Guest RewardsŪ members will now enjoy access to the United Club through February 2012. Present your valid Select PlusSM card at the United Club for entry. The partnership between Amtrak Guest Rewards and United Club is still under development, and we will keep you informed as it is finalized in 2012.

In addition, a partnership between Amtrak Guest Rewards and United MileagePlusŪ is in the works. At this time, the only confirmed change to the Amtrak Guest Rewards program benefits will be the end of points-to-miles and miles-to-points transfers between programs. The option to convert Amtrak Guest Rewards points to Continental OnePassŪ miles and to convert Continental OnePass miles to Amtrak Guest Rewards points will end on December 31, 2011.

We will keep you informed as additional details are finalized for the new Amtrak Guest Rewards partnership with United MileagePlus.

As always, thank you for your continued loyalty.
