Insurance is not among my favorite topics, be it life, auto, home, etc. But, earning loyalty points is. Today, I got an email from Amtrak offering 500 Guest Rewards points if I call up Met Life, mention code BXW and discuss insurance options with them. Not bad! I am going to stick with my current situation now given that I am still going through an insurance claim after a driver totaled our car. But, it might be a good idea for others.
Amtrak certainly isn’t the only loyalty program to partner up with financial services companies. Many other hotel and airline loyalty programs have similar partnerships that will offer you points for a few minutes of your time. If you end up saving, that’s a double win.
