New Amtrak Promotion: Take 2, Get 1 Free

Amtrak just announced a new promotion where if you take two roundtrip trips on the Northeast regional train between January 7 and March 2, you’ll earn one free roundtrip to use this summer between July 1 and August 29. You must register for this promotion PRIOR to travel.

The terms are pretty straight forward, and actually instead of two roundtrips it can be four one-way trips, which is great. Each one-way must be at least $49, which they typically are so there should be no issues there. You are limited to two qualifying one-way segments per day.

The free trip voucher can be redeemed on the same northeast regional coach train (and I believe it can be used for two one-ways). You are able to earn a maximum of two roundtrips (four one-ways).

While I wouldn’t go out of my way to earn these free train rides, if you already have upcoming travel, this is a great promotion!

Remember, this is for the Northeast Regional trains, not the Acela. If you are interested in the Acela promotion, take a look at this post to learn more.



  1. There is also another promotion – Take 3 get 1 free – on the Acela Express trips. I got to sign up for both of the promotions and hoping to take advantage of both..!!
