The Amtrak Guest Rewards credit card is shifting from Bank of America to FNBO. The changeover will take place on October 23, with existing customers receiving a new card, a new bonus spends category, and a new annual fee. Here are all the known details of the Amtrak credit card changeover:
Changes Coming to Amtrak Credit Cards in October
Last year, Bank of America pulled the Amtrak Guest Rewards® World Mastercard® from its travel credit card lineup. The Amtrak Guest Rewards credit card program is now shifting to FNBO (First National Bank of Omaha).
FNBO will begin managing existing Amtrak Guest Rewards credit card accounts starting October 23, 2022. Between October 1 and October 23, accountholders will receive the new FNBO Amtrak Guest Rewards Mastercard, with new account numbers, expiration dates, and three-digit security codes. Payment dates will also change depending on the statement date. Statements will be mailed from FNBO after the changeover date.
