Bottom Line

If you value Amtrak points more than others, this promotion will allow you to double your double dip points credited to another program with Hilton stays.

The key thing to consider is if you are staying a hotel for under 500 US, the fixed rate option will be better unless you are staying in a Homewood Suites, Home2 Suites or Hampton Inn.

    For most Americans, I imagine Amtrak points are of little use. However, I have lived in the DC and NY metro area for most of my life and normally get better value out of them than any other reward point. I frequnetly have to travel on the east coast last minute and for 4000 Amtrak points you can go anywhere between DC and Boston. Last minute those tickets go for 100-160 dollars. That is a value of .025 to .04 cents per point.
