  1. Hmm, not seeing any bonus on purchasing Amtrak points. I logged into two different accounts on two different browsers. Prices seem the same as always and there is no notation about a bonus on the Amtrak site. Is this targeted? Anyplace where I can get further info?

  2. This may not be on too many people’s radars (or might be targeted to Gold members), but La Quinta just sent me a promo offering 8000 points for a 2-night stay until June 30. It looks to be a one-time bonus, but is enough for a free night (or close to it) at many of their properties.
