Amtrak Extends Northeast Summer Deal into the Fall

Two months ago, we wrote about Amtrak’s summer sale for travel in the Northeast corridor.  With the 25% discount offered, taking the train became a slightly more accessible option, with a one-way New York – DC trip going for $49 and Philadelphia- New York going for $34.  This deal was due to run out just before Labor Day, but has now been extended for another four months, to December 16, 2009.  The discounted fare is calculated automatically (no coupon codes necessary), and, to qualify, tickets must be purchased 14 days in advance.  There are blackout dates around Labor Day (September 4 and 7) and Thanksgiving Day (November 24-25 and 28-30), but otherwise this extension is great news all around.
