I love riding on trains. Since I have the Amtrak credit card, I have a round trip Sleeper sized trip waiting for me to take it. The dilemma is that if I pay for a trip on May 9th, I'll get quadruple points which is Amtrak Point heaven for me. I just noticed that Amtrak has partnered with Zipcar in the points program which is cool except that there isn't a program nearby. I know the economy is bad but there really are some good deals now. We just found a little pickup truck for exactly the price we wanted and in better shape than we expected. It doesn't hurt to have some savings on hand for times like this.
