Hello, I just recently joined the forums here and I'm a poor college student. However, I recently entered the world of traveling by miles/points by taking the first step to redeeming 4k points from Amtrak Guest Rewards for a free train ride home from Washington, DC to my hometown in Vermont. I loved traveling and always want to travel but I can't afford the trips because my money is going towards college or bills and I don't have a job because I'm a full-time student. Yet with all of those, my urge to travel is still strong especially when tomorrow is my first day of the summer vacation! I had a points.com account (registered recently) and I saw a trade offer of 1k Amtrak Guest Rewards for 1k IHG Rewards Club + $10 trading fee. I did not register for IHG yet, but I am curious about your opinions if it is worth starting out my saving days by registering for an additional program and accepting that trade?
