Amtrak Guest Rewards Multipartner Promo: A Chance to Earn a Whopping 1700 Points!

Amtrak Guest Rewards has a partner bonus promotion running through July 31: an activity in each of four categories earns a meagar bonus, and if you have activity in all four you earn an additional modest bonus. Registration required.

The four categories are shopping, cruise, hotel and car rental. And therein actually lies the rub: cruise is an actual separate category.

There’s 100 bonus points for a shopping transaction, 200 bonus points each for a transaction in the other three categories, and then 1000 additional bonus points for activity in all four.

This may be the only partner bonus promotion in the history of loyalty programs where you had to book a cruise with a partner before you could earn a multi-partner bonus.

Look, if you’re going to shop via the Amtrak Guest Rewards mall for some reason, it’s worth signing up for the promotion to score a mere 100 points.  But these folks have got to be kidding.
