Speed is not generally the reason people take a train. Sometimes it's nice to look out the window, have a drink and a meal. It can feel a bit more civilized and be less draining than driving long distances. I've done a lot of travel by train in Europe, but almost none here. Maybe it's time.

So which one are you?

FYI coach means meals are not included and no sleeper. If you're planning a trip like Empire Builder then you're looking at 40-ish hours with only observation car and a seat to sleep in. If your train is packed, that can be miserable. Otherwise pretty slick deal for summer travel.

No matter what I do, I cannot get any of these discounted prices. There is no place to input a promo code.

This is legit the reason why I never, ever, use Amtrak. Every single time I try to do anything on their website, it never works. Prices never reflect what they advertise, promo code boxes missing, no explanations. Such crap.

Update: apparently only works for the lower class seats, despite saying right there " Offer valid for all reserved services, except Auto Train. "

FYI, you should still be able to get the B1G1 on the 'coach portion' of the fare even if you select a sleeper compartment upgrade.


altho I didn't get V214 to work for me.

the link already applies the code unless you go to their home page, then you will see the drop down tab to add the code.

Can't seem to get it to work on many different trip options, nor do I see anywhere to input a promo code. What am I missing?

I suppose traveling with drunks and people who aren't allowed to fly and pick pockets is romantic to some lol. Whatever you do don't get the Amtrak veggie burger. Trust me on this one...
So which one are you?

Hey alright! Now it's almost as cheap as flying for only 10X the travel time.

Just in case it helps anyone,

This discount is never applied to the "Saver" fare. It applies to "Value" and "Flexible". They have a little green bar with Promo Applied underneath.

So that means if I wanted to take Amtrak from Anaheim to San Diego the code won't be applied?
