Earn Double Points on Amtrak; Separate Discount Offer for AAA Members
Register now for the Double Days promotion by Amtrak Guest Rewards and earn double points on all travel on Amtrak trains in the United States. Travel between September 5, 2012 through November 16, 2012.
Registration is required, and you must be a member of Amtrak Guest Rewards to participate in this promotion. There is a limit of two qualifying one-way trips per day. Terms and conditions apply.
If you are a member of the American Automobile Association, there is a separate promotion to sweeten the deal for you called the 10+10 Discount where members of the American Automobile Association — who already enjoy a 10 percent discount off of the best available Amtrak fares — will save an additional 10 percent for economy class travel on select eligible routes between September 16, 2012 and October 31, 2012, except for October 5, 2012. You must book your travel by September 15, 2012 to take advantage of this promotion. Other terms and conditions apply.
You might find that with these offers, Amtrak may be a reasonable and viable alternative to travel as opposed to air travel or automobile travel. Think about it: no dealing with the Transportation Security Administration at airport security checkpoints, and no worrying about staying awake while you drive.
Would you consider choosing traveling by train in the United States versus traveling by airplane or car?
