Book through Nov 12 to ride in Acela Business class for $20
« on: November 10, 2020, 10:13:34 AM »
This is a great deal if you ride Amtrak 

Acela is turning 20. And to celebrate this double-decade milestone, now for a limited time we’re offering $20 fares aboard Acela Business Class traveling November 16 through December 17.

This unprecedented fare is available between all Acela destinations – so you can join the ‘fast-moving festivities’ for a speedy Northeast getaway, a quick trip through the Mid-Atlantic, or just a shorter ride to your next long weekend. All while enjoying spacious seating, free WiFi access and other premier amenities aboard every Acela train along the way.

And, Amtrak has implemented a suite of enhanced safety measures — including mask requirements, limited bookings, efficient air filtration, reserved seating onboard Acela, and more — to help get you there quickly and comfortably. Plus no change fees through December 31, 2020.

Book from November 10–12 for travel from November 16–December 17, 2020. Restrictions & blackout dates apply. $20 fares not available for travel on Fridays and Sundays.

Look at the T&C. Lots of blackout dates but on all other dates I see availability
- No Sundays or Fridays
- Nothing 11/23-11/30, except for Thanksgiving itself

Anywhere Acela goes... which is Boston to DC. Check the map for full list of stops but it's all the major cities along the way, including NYC, EWR, PHL/ZFV, Bidenville, Baltimore

Glad you found one. Amtrak has really cut down on the number of trains and also cut the capacity onboard by 50% or more. So there are not many seats and chances are that the $20 ones will go fast. By tomorrow don't expect to be able to find easily.
