Did you compose your post on a mobile device?
  

Interesting. Did they write anything about Amtrak tickets too?

It includes any purchase made on amtrak including tickets

Interesting.  Somewhat surprising that rail is not included.
Citi said: 3% cash back on restaurant (including cafes, bars, lounges and fast food restaurants) and eligible travel purchases worldwide, including airfare, hotels, car rentals, travel agencies, cruise lines and Costco Travel.
 


 

FWIW you get a much higher rebate with the B of A Amtrak card for purchase of train tickets. A point is 2.9% and you earn 3x with the card, so that's almost 9%, plus whatever Amtrak itself earns.

Why would you ever purchase a ticket on Amtrak?  SPG convert to Amtrak 1:1, and can be created all day long at a cost of ~1%
