How to Get a VetRewards Card

You must enroll with Veterans Advantage (submit an online form for membership), and receive a 10-digit Travel Discount Code that can be used immediately to book your Amtrak travel. Currently, Veterans Advantage is offering a 30-day trial in the VetRewards Card program for Amtrak travelers. Please note that the membership is yours to use for 30 days. After the 30-day period you will be billed for your membership unless you contact Veterans Advantage to opt out of the membership program. One-year, three-year and five-year plans are available.

Act today, there are many more benefits available. You will also be mailed a nationally-recognized membership card and 60-page benefits directory — all as a special “Thank You” for your service.
