Amtrak is offering an introductory fare for its Amtrak USA Rail Pass where you can travel 10 Segments within 30-Days for $299.

Thanks to Deal Hunter serra for finding this deal.

Note, book this offer from June 8 - 22

About the USA Rail Pass:
  • The USA Rail Pass allows you to take a multi-segment journey on Amtrak for one low, fixed price. After you purchase your pass, you will be able to start booking each segment of your trip directly from your purchase confirmation, by going to 'Modify Trip' on Amtrak.com, or by looking up your reservation on the Amtrak mobile app.
  • A travel segment occurs any time you board and disembark a train (or other scheduled services). If your trip involves making one connection, you will use two segments of your USA Rail Pass.
  • The pass validity period is 120 days following the date of your purchase. Once you travel on your first segment, you will have 30 days before your pass expires.
  • The USA Rail Pass is not a ticket and is not valid for travel; it is used to obtain all tickets for travel. You must have a ticket and a reservation for each train you board.
  • Travel in regular Coach class seats which feature wide, reclining seats with a big picture window, ample legroom, and no middle seat.
  • Hop on/off the train across 500 destinations

No 4. There's a stop in Chicago, Denver, SLC, Cali

Why? Do each of those cities require off-boarding the train?

The same train from another city? This is an interesting scenario and probably worth a call to Amtrak. Let us know what you find out!

You have to use all 10 rides within 30 days from your first ride. But the first ride has to be made within 120 days of the pass purchase.
How do you work on the train? The amtrak wifi is garbage based on my experience
Not just the distance between cities but the layout. In most cities you're gonna need to rent a car over and over to get around within town, and if you're doing that - just rent the car and drive the distance.

I think they have revamped the rail pass (in May 2021) compared to the reddit discussion.
For example - validity is only 120 days since purchase now, not 330 days as before.

You have to use all 10 rides within 30 days from your first ride. But the first ride has to be made within 120 days of the pass purchase.

Am I missing something here or does this 'deal' require you to take 10 train trips in a span of 30 days, at $30 per trip? Who does that? Where are you going that you won't need a car when you get there, and you're only staying 3 days or so at every single one of the 10 places you go? Maybe for someone who lives in Philly and works in NYC?

This and the fact you have to use it in 30 days. Make it good for a year and more people would try it
