See America by Amtrak With 70,000 Point Ink Plus

Update:  The Chase Ink Plus 70,000 point offer is no longer available, but check Hot Deals for the latest offers!

Most miles-and-points enthusiasts focus on flights and hotels, so the Amtrak Guest Rewards program doesn’t get much attention as a transfer partner of Chase Ultimate Rewards.

But if you don’t mind traveling at a more easy-going pace, or want to see the country from your own private bedroom, you might want to consider using points to travel on Amtrak.  Because you can get valuable train tickets for relatively few points!

By transferring the increased 70,000 point sign-up bonus from the Chase Ink Plus to Amtrak, you can get lots of (interesting!) Big Travel with Small Money!

Note: The Chase Ink Plus 70,000 point bonus offer ends on October 19, 2014.
