Perfect!

FYI for those on Android (since it took me a minute to figure it out):
Press on the W logo on the upper left, and then press Loyalty Programs. AGR will be there to add! If your last name is pre-entered when it gets to the verification question, that's normal; it's verifying with your last name and Wallet auto-adds your last name that you have on your Wallet account.

It wants to scan a bar code, which I don't have.

Any way to do that if I don't have my AGR card handy?


Edit: Nevermind, I are dumb. Tap on the "skip" button in the iOS app and it lets you put in your AGR number.

too late All my points previously expired. Too bad, this would've been a nice way to keep them active.

Sadly No, even this wouldn't have helped to keep your points from expiring. Only paid travel on Amtrak or holding the AGR credit card from Chase can keep your points from expiring.

If they just expired within the last month or two, sometimes one can call AGR and get them back if you book an immediate paid trip. No promises, but there have been reports of this happening in the past.

Super Fast! (Hey, it's the "Internets")

Wow! That WAS instant Anthony, thanks for the tip. Keep up the good work and partnering.

Now, if u could just shake loose some of that Google cash, and convince them to buy-then-refurbish the old SF Highlevels, Amtrak cud have PPC's on every LD train.

(Hey, it' MY recurring dream....., which I will post wherever I can, hoping SOMEone within 6 degrees of separation will plant this seed in Sergey's mind.....stranger things HAVE happened. Look what "nutty" RE: Outside-The-Box, things Branson is doing in the UK, and in space....)

These are helpful instructions. If perhaps your Wallet app is not up to date - oops - that is a good place to start. (My somewhat older version didn't jibe with jebr's reference at all.)

Won't Verify for me - Any Ideas

I have been a guest rewards member since it's inception but for some reason this app association won't recognize me as a member. I have gone through the Google Wallet help and verified everything in Amtrak and yet it won't go. I have even checked for typos, cause I have been down that road before. Any help would be appreciated.

Does the name on your account match exactly?
