Amtrak Extends Buy One Get One Companion Fare Sale Throughout the Northeast Corridor

Saturday one-way rides are now BOGO on Acela and Northeast Regional

WASHINGTON – The Amtrak Buy One Get One (BOGO) Saturday companion fare sale has been extended, making Saturday the best day to travel to destinations throughout the Northeast. The sale is available to Amtrak customers booking Saturday trips on either the Acela service in business class or Northeast Regional service in coach.

Both trains offer stops in cities such as New York, Philadelphia, Providence, Rhode Island and Richmond, Virginia, where customers have plenty of activities to fill their weekend itineraries. Customers can purchase their BOGO tickets at using discount code “C222.” Below are some of the special prices available for two customers, in either direction, during the sale:

Markets Price for Two Pairing Cities  Price for Two
Boston – New York NER – $83 Acela – $125 Charlottesville – Washington, D.C. NER – $37
Philadelphia – New York NER – $60 Acela – $113 New York – Providence NER – $71 Acela – $119

There are many other perks to travelling with Amtrak. Travelers can capture and share every moment of their trip with complimentary Wi-Fi on Acela and Northeast Corridor trains and enjoy the freedom to use phones and electronic devices at all times (no airplane mode). Spacious seats, ample leg room and no middle seats make the journey more comfortable, and guests can most likely take their furry companion along for the trip as small pets are allowed on many Amtrak trains.

The sale is valid on all Acela (Washington – Boston) and Northeast Regional train service (Virginia – Boston). This offer is not valid on unreserved service on the Pennsylvanian and Keystone Service locally between Philadelphia and Harrisburg and Thruway Service.

Use Discount code “C222” on to activate discount. Three-day advanced booking is required. The passenger paying full fare and their companion must travel together on the same itinerary and have tickets issued together. No upgrades are allowed, and the offer cannot be combined with other discount codes.

Space is limited as sale prices are not available on all trains or at all times, and this offer is subject to any restrictions and refund rules that apply to the type of fare purchased. A 25% cancellation fee may apply. Other restrictions may also apply.
