I’ve taken the Acela several times this fall and never realized there was a double points promotion going on. Luckily registration is retroactive, so I got the bonus points immediately. The registration link I got was targeted to my account, so if you haven’t already signed up just login to your Amtrak Guest Rewards account and select My Promotion and register. The bonus will retroactively apply to all reservations- kudos to Amtrak for good IT- the airlines could learn a lot from them!
