    AGR FNBO Credit Card discussion 2023 H2 -2024

    My wife was unsuccessful in doing this scenario. She applied online a couple of months after canceling the fee card and was immediately approved for the no-fee card. She is also hoping to receive the 12k bonus points that is currently being offered.

    40K points for FNBO Preferred Mastercard

    How did that turn out for you JayPea? I had the same issue with FNBO the last time the promotion was offered in 2023. I declined to send them a copy of my SS card and other documentation. My argument was it was not necessary considering I was a current FNBO MC card holder with MGM! I never...

    Happy to hear you reached a pleasant outcome. Did you get the name of the agent Paul? That one is a keeper!

    AGR Credit Card change (October 2022)

    One thing I should mention first is that my wife, prior to opening this account, already had a FNBO credit card with MGM. This may explain the hassle free scenario for her. The AGR coupons were available in her account soon after the FNBO card was activated. It was pretty quick, well before...

    AGR Credit Card change (October 2022)

    FYI—-My wife and I both opted out to receive the FNBO card when it was first offered by AGR. After the credit card transition from BOA to FNBO was official, my wife applied for the AGR FNBO card offering the 30k point bonus. She promptly received the card and during the first cycle period spent...

    AGR Credit Card change (October 2022)

    My wife and I received the new cards today. This was totally unexpected since we both opted out of the card via the AGR Change in Terms Notification Line. When we ”choose to reject” and opted out the recorded announcement indicated the opt out was final. As another previous poster indicated...

    AGR Credit Card change (October 2022)

    My wife and I each received the postcard yesterday. We were not expecting this considering we both opted out of the offer. This was done in mid September on the automated AGR Change in Terms Notification line. Hopefully I will not be surprised again with a AGR FNBO credit card in my mailbox!

    AGR Credit Card change (October 2022)

    As I indicated in a previous post, I might opt out of this offer. Since I already have an FNBO account I called the FNBO Customer Service line to discuss this matter. The knowledgeable rep said in order to opt out on the AGR FNBO credit card call 855-489-6174. This is an automated line that is...

    AGR Credit Card change (October 2022)

    My wife and I both have the no fee card and received the letter on Tuesday. Ironically we already have a FNBO cobranded card. We are thinking about, if possible, decline the new Amtrak card due to having a FNBO card already. Then maybe months later apply for a new Amtrak FNBO card in hopes of...

    Amtrak dining and cafe service

    I can substantiate that a full menu meal is served on Train 2 prior to arriving in NOL. My first Amtrak trip in over three years was on this route In late April. The meals were most impressive especially since my last experience being subjected to the flex meals served on the LSL. Another...

    AGR Bonus Points

    My wife received the offer but not me. Certainly seems targeted! Her offer was also 2000 points for $1000 spend. My upcoming full year auto insurance at $926 (plus change) is destined to be charged with my wife's BOA card!

    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic: Amtrak-related Discussion

    In my case with the AGR agents I basically had to tell them about this new refund policy. I honestly feel they were unfamiliar with this new edict had I not have mentioned it to each of the agents. Be prepared to have that press release available for discussion.

    COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic: Amtrak-related Discussion

    Hello To All, It has been awhile since my last post. I have been a lurker for the past year and a half. Family issues have kept me from traveling and participating in the forum. I can add some insight though to this question after cancelling an existing AGR reservation this morning. The...

    Alan Burden (AlanB)

    So sorry to hear the news. My condolences to the Burden Family. It goes without saying that he was loved by many and will be surely missed.

    Bill Haithcoat's Health Condition

    Sorry to hear about this sad news as well. I had the pleasure of meeting up with Bill on two occasions when my Amtrak itinerary began at the Atlanta station. He was enthusiastically waiting for me at the station. We had informative discussions while waiting for the train to arrive. Farewell...

    Menu Changes (October 2017)

    Although a bit of topic, I was on the LSL a few weeks ago. I was surprised that the side garden salad was discontinued and plastic utensils are now used for the meals. How long has this been going on?
