If you’ve been on the fence about taking a trip on Amtrak using Ultimate Rewards points, now is the time to make a decision.
As Travis covered earlier this year, Amtrak is making big changes to the Amtrak Guest Rewards program.
The major changes include:
— Amtrak will switch from a zone-based award chart to revenue redemptions
— Chase will no longer be issuing the co-branded Amtrak credit card
With the co-branded credit card moving from Chase to Bank of America, Chase will lose Amtrak as an Ultimate Rewards transfer partner. Back in October Amtrak announced that the last day to transfer points is December 7, 2015.
