If you transferred points from Amtrak to Choice you should move them into another program asap!
There are numerous reports of Choice zeroing out people’s balances.
There are many rumors as to why they are doing this, the most popular being that Amtrak didn’t pay for the transfers!
Regardless, there is really no leg for Choice to stand on here, the transfers were all 100% legitimate and within the boundaries and good faith of their loyalty program. The can’t legally zero out people’s balances!
This has got to be a new low for loyalty programs.
Here are some email addresses for Choice executives, if you’ve been affected then let ‘em have it!!!
What’s the status of your transfer? Did you make it all the way to Southwest? Are your Choice points still intact or have they been zeroed out? Post a comment!
Stay tuned for more information…
