Update: The current sign-up bonus for the Amtrak Guest Rewards World MasterCard is 12,000 points after spending $500 in the first 3 months, 2 points per dollar spent on Amtrak, and one point per dollar on everything else.
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!
