If one cancels a ticket bought with AGR points, do you get the points back? Looked all over the Amtrak site and could not find anything about this.

I did see you can change the reservation so if I can't refund it I might just do that, change to some randon date in the future as I know I will be taking the trip at some point.

Ok sounds like there will be a 20 % penalty so i am probably going to reschedule instead.

The base penalty is 10%. If the cancellation occurs within 24 hours of departure, or for sleeper within 14 days of departure, the penalty is 20%. If you modify and the new trip uses fewer points, the points redeposit is subject to the 10% or 20% penalty based on the time prior to the original departure date.

I know the policy says trips booked with points will be charged like 10% fee for any changes. I booked a trip for 125,000 points that I may need to change or cancel. Will they really deduct points if I do this?

I believe they’ve extended the change fee waiver, even for points, till end of July. You’ll want to double check that. If you cancel, then they’ll deduct a cancellation fee.
