Redeem points for Amtrak travel

You'll get the best value out of your Amtrak Guest Rewards Points when you redeem them for award rail travel with Amtrak which will give you a value of at least 2 cents per point minimum. I actually could not find any travel that gave me less than 2 cents per point.

As an example, look at this Amtrak travel between Tampa and Atlanta.

These redemptions offer superb value!

These redemptions offer values of 2.7-2.8 cents per point which is magnificent.

Redeeming point for gift cards

You can redeem your Amtrak Guest Rewards Points for gift cards will give you up to 1 cent in value per point. $50 gift cards offer a value of 0.83 cents per Amtrak Point while $100+ gift cards offer 1 cent in value.

Obviously this isn't the best redemption since you can get double to triple the value when redeeming points for award rail travel, but it's still a decent redemption as long as you get at least a $100 denomination gift card.
