Amtrak Guest Rewards® World Mastercard® Program Summary. How You Earn Amtrak Guest Rewards® Points:
You earn points when you use your card to make purchases, minus returns, credits and adjustments (“Net Purchases”). The following transactions are not considered Net Purchases and will not earn points: Balance Transfers and Cash Advances (each as defined in your Credit Card Agreement), fees, interest charges, fraudulent transactions and certain other charges. 1 Point:
Earn 1 point (base point) for every $1 of Net Purchases charged to the card each billing cycle. 2 Points:
Earn 2 points (consisting of 1 bonus point and 1 base point) for every $1 of Net Purchases charged at eligible Non-Amtrak travel merchants, which include: airlines, car rental agencies, hotels, motels, inns, and resorts, steamship/cruise lines, commuter rail, passenger rail, and travel agencies. 3 Points:
Earn 3 points (consisting of 2 bonus points and 1 base point) for every $1 of eligible Amtrak travel and onboard Net Purchases charged to the card where Amtrak is the merchant of record. Bonus Point Processing:
Merchants are assigned a merchant category code (MCC) based upon the merchant's primary line of business. We do not determine which MCC a merchant chooses to classify itself. We group similar MCCs into Bonus Categories to help you earn bonus rewards on purchases made at specific merchants. Your purchase may not qualify to receive the bonus earn rate if the merchant does not process transactions under the MCC that corresponds with the Bonus Category, or your purchase is processed through a third-party payment account, mobile/wireless card reader, digital wallet not supported by Bank of America or similar technology where the technology does not support transmission of MCCs. For those Net Purchases, you will earn 1 base point per dollar. How You Use Your Points:
Your points can be redeemed for Amtrak Guest Rewards travel, hotel stays, car rentals and gift cards. For information on redemption and redemption minimums, go to amtrakguestrewards.com. Welcome Gift/Anniversary Gift:

Certain restrictions apply to each benefit. Details accompany new account materials. Overdraft Protection.
Overdraft transfers to your eligible Bank of America deposit account from your credit card account will be Bank Cash Advances under your Credit Card Agreement. Transfers will be subject to the terms of both your Credit Card Agreement and the account agreement(s) and disclosures governing your Bank of America deposit account. If you link your Bank of America deposit account to your credit card for Overdraft Protection, we will automatically transfer funds in multiples of $100 from your credit card account to cover any overdraft on your deposit account, as long as the portion of credit available for cash on your credit card account is sufficient and you are not in default under your Credit Card Agreement. A fee of $12 will apply for each transaction. The fee will not be assessed if your deposit account is overdrawn by a total amount less than $12, after we finish processing for the day. The Bank Cash Advance will accrue interest at the APR stated in your Credit Card Agreement. Overdraft Protection transfers incur interest charges from the transaction date. If the portion of credit available for cash on your credit card account is insufficient to cover the amount required by the overdraft (in the multiple of funds stated above), we may advance the funds even if it causes your credit card account to exceed your Cash Credit Line. Linking Overdraft Protection from your Bank of America credit card to your Bank of America deposit account will end any other Overdraft Protection connections to your deposit account. Please see your Credit Card Agreement for additional details.
If the total amount you request exceeds your Total Credit Line, we may send full or partial payment to your creditors in the order you provide them to us. Allow at least 2 weeks from account opening for processing. Continue paying each creditor until the transfer appears as a credit. Balance Transfers incur interest charges from the transaction date. If you revolve your balance to take advantage of a promotional or introductory offer, all transactions and balances, including purchases, will be charged interest. The Balance Transfer fee is 3% of the amount of the transaction (min. $10). If you have a dispute with a creditor and pay that balance by transferring it to your new account, you may lose certain dispute rights. Balance Transfers may not be used to pay off or pay down any account issued by Bank of America, N.A., FIA Card Services, or its affiliates.
