What’s a Tier Qualifying Point?

Tier Qualifying Points (TQPs) count toward your Amtrak Guest Rewards tier status and are earned by traveling on Amtrak. Additional TQPs can be earned by traveling in Business class or Acela First class or as an Amtrak Guest Rewards® World Mastercard® cardholder. The more TQPs you earn during the year, the easier it is to reach the next tier, giving you more benefits.

I had completed trips on Amtrak in early 2021. Will these completed trips count toward this promotion?

Yes, you will receive the additional TQPs for the Amtrak travel you completed in early 2021.

Is there anything that I need to do to receive the double TQPs?

No. There is no need to register or take any additional action. The additional TQPs will be credited to your account.

When will I receive my additional TQPs?

The additional TQPs will post into your account at the same time other point earnings from that same trip are posted.
