    Midwest Rail Plan final Report

    When I was a kid, one of my fondest memories was riding the train from a small town in SW Indiana to St. Louis to visit relatives. Passenger service stopped after a few years of my being "of travel age" according to my family. Logistically, it is almost a straight shot. It would be nice if...

    Excellent offer for Amtrak Mastercard

    OK question about the Amtrak World Card. Are the points that you earn on purchases count as TQPs? Or are just the 1000 TQPs that you earn quarterly for the required quarterly purchase the only TQPs that you earn? (I think that I know the answer, but I would like to get it confirmed by the...

    You eat in your room? Why?

    On our trip, we had enough people in our party to take up more than one table in the dining car. We were able to engage in conversation with another family traveling and another time, with a father and his 2 sons traveling part way across the country. All of that was great and so enjoyable...

    Donating points before they expire

    Those are all excellent ideas. I hate for anyone to miss out on using their points. It is kind of you to think of others. I don't know if you are eligible for the survey website that you can earn Amtrak points on or not. If you don't know where to find it, the web address is...

    Thanks jebr for the information. I just may partake of this offer. If your points never expire, it sounds like an incredible deal PLUS you may get $100 statement credit. Thanks again.

    Excellent offer for Amtrak Mastercard

    OK, would the 50,000 bonus miles that you get with the card EVER expire? Do you have to travel within a certain period of time? Sounds like a good deal doesn't it?

    TQP expiration and status question

    OK, I got the double TQPs awarded to my account, Select status, and the points will expire 3/01/22. IF I get and use the Amtrak World credit card properly and get the 1,000 TQPs for the first quarter, would that extend my 3/01/22 expiration date (to when) for the entire amount of TQPs and...

    Amtrak Credit Card

    Does anyone have any specific comments or issues about how or when points are posted to your Amtrak account? Is there a lot of "fine print" hoops that have to be jumped through just to get the points? Thanks.

    General questions about earning points and status

    OK, here's another question. Can someone transfer enough TQPs to you to bump you up a status? I am close to another tier (413 short) and wondered if that was allowed. Thanks so much for everyone's help and advice. This is a great discussion board.
