Buy through Friday, August 17, for 30 percent discounts on lots of Amtrak trips around the country from September 5 through November 15. As always with Amtrak sales, Amtrak’s website automatically displays discounted ticket prices during a fare search.
It appears Amtrak is starting to run frequent flash sales, as often as once a month or so. If you’re interested in rail travel, keep checking for special deals.
