I've had all four "communications preferences" checked "yes" for as long as I can remember - and don't receive anything. Its not a spam blocker issue. This is the same email address I receive my tickets on as well as notifications for pending and awarded points from the shopping portal.I forget which option it is on the Amtrak web site, and/or AGR side of it, that perhaps you don't have the 'email offers to me' checked.
I had to set up an email account on another provider to use for promotional emails my regular email wasn’t getting them.

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!We got an offer of 2000 points for $1000 spent. And may I remind people, one can always prepay a bill to meet the point requirement. In our case, I paid off my auto insurance in full even though it could pay the balance 1/8 of it per month for the next 8 months and not pay a fee. Yes, I'll receive a credit card bill for that amount but will, as always, pay that off immediately to avoid fees/interest.
I've even paid multiple months of phone/internet and other recurring charges in advance to get bonuses on CCs.
Note, because I hate BoA so much, those will be the last dollars they get from me until my next Amtrak trip many months from now.
Took me trying for 7 days to get through to Bank of Money to talk with a Live Agent re My Credit Card Bill.Finally got through @ 2am and was told " This isn't my Usual Job, so I am not able to help you. You will have to call back and ask for the " Credit Card Department". We value your Business,thanks for being a Bank of America Customer!" ClickWell, I spent the $1000 required for my bonus offer, got the bill for $1100+ but got no bonus showing up on my account. Is this another of those phony offers from Bank Of Sleazy or do we have to wait longer than the time to get the regular points?
I tried to call them but when I chose Rewards Points, I got the message that they are not handling those kind of calls. So I called back and just said "representative" over and over until I got put in a 1 hour 39 minute waiting list. That was, of course, after they said how much they cared - well just not enough to spend any govenrment bailout money hiring some more people to help on the phones. They need that money to boost their bonuses.
I deal with 2 credit unions (one for 40 years) but Amtrak did a deal with Sleaze of America bank so I use their credit card ONLY for Amtrak travel and the two times they have offered double points. Other than that, they are the one bank that I complained to a federal banking agency (can't remember which one) and suddenly SoA changed their tune about providing the information I requested.Hopefully many Americans will consider doing Business with their Local Credit Unions once this Crisis is over!!!
No Bank or Insurnce Company will send out Money or Bennies until they absolutely have to, the longer they hold on to your Money the Richer they get!When I had a different promo that involved bonus points from BoA (there was an add authorized user and get 5,000 point bonus around New Year's that I got) the points posted on the first of the month after the statement closed with the qualifying activity. They usually have a boilerplate "it may take up to 6-8 weeks for bonuses to post." In my experiences with BoA, they'll sometimes wait that long to post the bonuses - with the additional 2% cash back as a statement credit last year, it took a good 6 weeks for that statement credit to post!
