Amtrak introduces new elite level

I saw this the other day and didn’t get around to posting. Now NotiFlyer has beaten me to the punch!

Amtrak is adding a new top tier elite level to their Guest Rewards program.

    Guest Rewards members who earn 10,000 points or more annually will be admitted to the new “Select Plus” level, beginning March 1, 2005.

    Benefits include a 50-percent bonus points on all rail travel, unlimited access to ClubAcela, Metropolitan, and First Class lounges, single-class upgrades available 48 hours in advance, and companion coach vouchers.

This is a good move because the existing Select tier elite level is quite easy to reach and has been devalued slightly through limited club access as a result of having too many members.
