Amtrak sent out an email informing Guest Rewards members that its partnership with Continental Airlines OnePass is ending December 31, 2011:
While the Continental® OnePass® program will formally end in December, we’re happy to inform you that a new Amtrak Guest Rewards® partnership with the United MileagePlus® program is in the works.
In the meantime, here’s what the changes mean for you as an Amtrak Guest Rewards member:
• December 31, 2011 is the last day that Amtrak Guest Rewards members will be able to
convert Continental OnePass miles to Amtrak Guest Rewards points
• Members may convert OnePass miles to Amtrak Guest Rewards points in increments
of 5,000 miles for 5,000 points
• To convert your miles, contact the OnePass service center.
Eligible members* may convert Amtrak Guest Rewards points to OnePass miles at AmtrakGuestRewards.com through December 31, 2011. Transfer of points and miles will not be a benefit of the new partnership with United MileagePlus.
As always, thank you for your continued loyalty.
The Wandering Aramean points out that this asks more questions than it answers for other partnerships. AGR Insider on FlyerTalk says a partnership with United MileagePlus is in the works.
