After a long suspension, our members can continue to earn Amtrak Guest Rewards® points with their membership dues! Effective November 15, 2020, the Rail Passengers Association will resume awarding Amtrak Guest Rewards® points for new or renewed memberships.
As before, any Amtrak Guest Rewards® points received will reduce the tax-deductible amount of your membership dues, at a rate of 2.5¢ per point.
See the table below to find out how many points you can receive with your Association dues:
Points earned are based on membership level and whether dues are paid annually or monthly.
New and renewed memberships purchased on or after November 15, 2020, with a valid Amtrak Guest Rewards® account with Amtrak, will be eligible for Amtrak Guest Rewards® points, if you’ve added your Amtrak Guest Rewards® number to the membership record.
If you do not have your Amtrak Guest Rewards® number in your Rail Passengers Association membership record at the time of your purchase, that membership purchase will not be eligible to receive Amtrak Guest Rewards® points.
Monthly members will receive points on a prorated basis.
New or renewed memberships purchased between May 1 and November 15, 2020 are ineligible for Amtrak Guest Rewards® points until they are renewed in 2021.
The Association sends members’ Amtrak Guest Rewards® information to the program administrators at the end of each month. Please allow between 4-6 weeks for your points to appear in your Amtrak Guest Rewards® account.
We do not own or manage Amtrak or the Amtrak Guest Rewards® program. Your Association has no control over your Amtrak Guest Rewards® points or over how you may use them. Amtrak sets those policies. Please contact Amtrak with any questions about the Amtrak Guest Rewards® program.
