Three rides earn free trip on Acela Express
What's the deal?: Take three roundtrips on Amtrak's Acela Express by March 14 and earn a third trip free. You have to register online for the Amtrak Guest Rewards program or call 800-307-5000 (promo code 10509) to be eligible for the free trip. Also, if you use MasterCard to purchase your ticket, you'll receive double reward points.
What's the savings?: To qualify, you must spend a minimum of $85 each way. It costs at least $127 to take the Acela from Baltimore to New York. Travel to Philadelphia is a minimum of $79 each way. The free roundtrip will be awarded in the form of two one-way trips.
What's the catch?: Most important, travelers must register for the program and use a member number when booking. Travel with a monthly pass or multiride ticket does not qualify. The free trip must be taken between May 9 and June 30 and can be only used for travel during certain hours.
