AAA Amtrak discount
if you sign up with the American Automobile Association (AAA) you can...as a member, you and your immediate family will get 10% discount on the lowest available adult rail fare for Amtrak travel. By the way, seniors and kids between 2 and 15 years do get 50% off on standard adult fair on most trains.
That's a great way to save on Amtrak. It costs me $80 a year to be a member, and then you get the famous road service. They changed my tire on the highway on Labor Day and that was worth every penny!
Where to find Amtrak specials
The first place I would suggest looking for deals is on Amtrak's "latest promotions" and "weekly specials" pages, which features some good deals from Tuesday through Friday each week. Most specials are categorized by region and deals change weekly, so you gotta keep checking. Most special deals are between 20%-30% off, though I once found an offer of 50% off so it pays to check.
We've found so many Amtrak discounts that we're segmenting them by region. You're likely to find discounts for most popular routes with two gaping exceptions: There aren't many discounts for the east-to-west cross-country routes, and there aren't many discounts specifically for New York City.
