When it comes to rewards points, a new press release is a frequent traveler’s worst nightmare. Enter Amtrak:
A simpler process and more flexible earning and redemption options will be hallmarks of Amtrak’s completely overhauled Guest Rewards program, set to be implemented January 2016.
Translation: If you ride Amtrak California frequently, you need to use your points before a massive devaluation hits in January.
We are confident this program combines what passengers want most — the ability to grow points earnings rapidly with the freedom to use those points in the way that best fits their individual travel needs.”
