I have the paid card and use it almost exclusively, and got the offer. With the 4,000 point cap, though, I'm not going to earn many more points than I would otherwise.

I just paid $800 towards my insurance. That gets me the 4000 point max. They won't get another dime from me.

If you don't like them why do you have the card?
Amtrak points, points refunds on points travel, no points expiration and the bonuses. I had the pay card. Got the bonus. Dumped it and got the free card. Got another bonus.

However, I misspoke. They just got another $2500 from me - for another LD trip, this time Hinton to ABQ in March. So to make it clearer, either Amtrak travel or sufficient bonus points can persuade me to deal with the devil. I never said I couldn't be bribed.

I just received this for my free card, the day after I signed up for the AF one. Since the offer is retroactive to 11/15, I've already maxed the reward. Sigh. Timing is everything.

I don't think the offer is retroactive, only charges after you enroll count.

The fine print says that "once activated you will earn a total of 5 points per dollar spent..."
Keep reading until you get to this sentence:
Activating this offer can occur anytime during the promotion period and will include all qualifying purchases from November 15, 2021 through December 28, 2021


Here is the full text:
