Once again we’re pleased to report that something special is going on down on the tracks.
Amtrak’s Guest Rewards program continues to surprise us with its quiet innovation. And while we’ve talked about the Guest Rewards credit card, and the programs various airline alliances, we thought we’d point out some of the unique redemption opportunities available.
Naturally, you can earn free travel. Check out www.amtrak.com for more on that.
But you can also find a variety of other opportunities. For example, you can use your points for movie tickets … 5,000 points will get four tickets to participating AMC, Clearview Cinemas, Loews Cineplex Theatres, Regal Cinemas and United Artists Cinemas. And 6,800 points gets four tickets to General Cinemas and National Amusements.
And 5,000 points can get a $50 gift certificate from TGIFriday’s, Red Lobster or the Olive Garden.
So don’t think you have to focus exclusively on travel and hotels — it’s a big world out there.
