Amtrak Credit Card?
It was reported this morning by Frequent Miler that the Amtrak credit card has been discontinued and is no longer accepting new applications.
It looks like that may not be the case…for now…
First off, according to a Twitter conversation I had with Chase, it appears they are in-fact not accepting new applications for the card:
I’ve confirmed we are not accepting new applications at this time for the Amtrak Rewards card. Unfortunately, I don’t have more details.
I personally have the card, and find it valuable for my purposes. There’s no annual fee, you receive a 5% rebate on Amtrak point redemptions, and Amtrak points don’t expire so long as you have the card.
According to Chase, the card is not accepting new applicants, so if you don’t have the card yet, and want to get it, I’d highly suggest applying now through the links above (these are directly through Chase, and not affiliate links). The links take you directly to the landing page of the application, and do not mention a sign-up bonus, however the traditional sign-up bonus has been for 12,000 Amtrak Guest Rewards points, enough for 3-one way trips within the Northeast Corridor among other things.
