    Ha! I spelled Amtrak wrong and can not change it!

    Here is a copy of their email to me.

    While the Continental® OnePass® program will formally end in December, we're happy to inform you that a new Amtrak Guest Rewards® partnership with the United MileagePlus® program is in the works.

    In the meantime, here's what the changes mean for you as an Amtrak Guest Rewards member:
    • December 31, 2011 is the last day that Amtrak Guest Rewards members will be able to
    convert Continental OnePass miles to Amtrak Guest Rewards points
    • Members may convert OnePass miles to Amtrak Guest Rewards points in increments
    of 5,000 miles for 5,000 points
    • To convert your miles, contact the OnePass service center. Learn More

    Eligible members* may convert Amtrak Guest Rewards points to OnePass miles at AmtrakGuestRewards.com through December 31, 2011. Transfer of points and miles will not be a benefit of the new partnership with United MileagePlus.

    As always, thank you for your continued loyalty.

    Sincerely,

    It is nice that they are giving us notice for a change.

    This actually is not surprising, considering that there is a major IT transition coming in January/February, and UA probably wanted to get through that before working on an enhanced partnership (I could actually see some expansion of benefits once everything is done)
