Quick Thoughts

Amtrak points are generally more valuable than airline miles as we peg their value at just over 2.5cpp, although you can get even better value than that depending on what route you’re taking. That means a double points promotion should earn you points worth a minimum of 5% back, but potentially more than that.

To save even more on Amtrak travel, you can buy Amtrak gift cards for 5% off from AARP Rewards. You need to have an AARP membership, but that’s not expensive and it comes with all kinds of other benefits.
