April 10 Update: More confirmed American Express Multiplier locations, Amtrak Guest Rewards changes inactivity policy without notice & more!

We have completed another update to our American Express Cobalt Card Confirmed Multiplier Locations. Despite the not so good news from earlier this week that the 5x points on Eats & Drinks will be capped at $30K spending annually you'll still want to know where you can earn those 5x or 2x or even 1x points. So this feature will not go away, and in fact, even though we named it the Cobalt Confirmed Multiplier locations it in reality can be used for other Amex cards that have dining bonuses like the 3x points that was recently added to The Platinum Card from American Express or even the 4x points for the Scotiabank Gold American Express card. You can visit the feature here and see new additions from Toronto, Calgary and the Palm Springs area. Thanks again to all of our readers who have been contributing to this piece!

Heads up if you use Amtrak's services from Toronto, Montreal or Vancouver and are a member of their Guest Rewards program. Without notice they have changed the expiration of their points from 36 months to 24 months. This is an inactivity rule that is, as long as you have qualifying activity in your account once every 24 months you are good to go and is inline with lots of programs out there but still to change this without any notice to its members is not a good way to keep your program in the good books.
