I am taking a three-week trip soon, mostly by Amtrak. I transferred a few points from CO into the AGR program and bought a few regional rail tickets using points to supplement my trip. Thus I have five different PNRs and will be adding a sixth to complete the travel portion of the itinerary. I understand that in the AGR terms that they send a membership packet once you ride the rails once. However, I'd prefer to get a card beforehand so I am carrying one piece of plastic to use instead of six different pieces of paper. Is it worth calling AGR to see if they can send me the membership card and/or packet in advance, or should I consider taking a short trip to get points and the card itself? I have a few weeks before the trip commences. Thanks in advance!
