MODERATOR NOTE: there were numerous threads regarding upgrade, companion and lounge coupons with posts by members who have coupons available, who are seeking coupons and who have questions. We have merged most of the threads into this one, which was re-titled and pinned. Please note we "locked" some of the older threads (within the last year) where questions were asked and/or answered or all the coupons have expired. Very old threads were ignored. Please post any new requests, etc. in this thread.
Thanks.


I have two 48 hour one-class upgrade E-coupons which I will not be using.

They expire February 29, 2016.

First two posts/PM, by time posted, will receive them.

Mike

Hi Folks,

I have a companion coupon that is valid for travel through 12/04/2018 11:59 PM CT. Please PM me if you want it!

I do not anticipate using it, as I just received my SE companion coupons, so I'd love to see for it to go to a good home.
Would you mind posting the restrictions? I'm not sure if they differ between coupons. You must travel a lot to earn SE under AGR 2.0!

I don't log the same amount of miles/hours a lot of people on this forum do, but my job requires me to regularly travel between NYP and WAS (and sometimes BOS), often on 2-3 days notice. I'm allowed to book the Acela, which adds up quick as only expensive tickets are available on short notice. I've usually finished a few thousand TQP short of SE, but in 2017 there was a double TQP promotion which got me to passing the SE barrier only a few hundred TQPs.

One companion coupon was just taken, but since this community has been so kind in giving me upgrade coupons, I have another one available that expires 10/27/2018

Restrictions below:

  • Coupon valid for one (1) free companion rail fare with the purchase of one (1) regular (full) adult rail fare. Free companion and paying passenger must reserve at the same time and travel together at all times.
  • Valid for travel as one (1) one-way or one (1) roundtrip on one reservation per coupon. For roundtrip usage, both directions of travel must be reserved at the same time.
  • Travel blackouts apply: Mar. 30, 2018; Apr. 2, 2018; May 25, 2018; Aug. 31, 2018; Sep. 3, 2018; Nov. 20-21, 2018; Nov. 24-26, 2018; Dec. 21-23, 2018; Dec. 26-30, 2018; Jan. 2, 2019; Feb. 15, 2019, Feb 18, 2019; Apr. 19, 2019; Apr. 22, 2019
  • Valid for travel on all Amtrak service except train/Thruway series 7000 – 8999.
  • Free companion offer is not combinable with any discount, coupon, or Amtrak Guest Rewards® redemption travel.
  • The eCoupon# is unique to your coupon and valid for one use only. Buying or selling this coupon is prohibited and will invalidate the coupon. Coupon may be transferred to a family member or friend.
  • Offer valid for Coach class travel only. Upgrade to Business class or First class (excluding sleeping car accommodations) is available upon full payment of applicable accommodation charges.
  • Other restrictions may apply.

I recently made select plus which is about best I guess I can hope for living in northeast Louisiana and the closest Amtrak station any direction more than a hundred miles away. I really don't see any way for me to use the upgrade coupons on the long distance trains I've ridden or am I missing something? The companion coupons I received I use on short jaunts to Dallas with my wife riding coach but not seeing any way to benefit from the upgrade coupons.

Upgrade coupons only apply to trains in the Northeast, Midwest, on the Coast Starlight, and on the Pacific Surfliner. You can't find business class anywhere else, unfortunately.

You can also find business class offered on the LSL, the Cardinal and maybe a few other trains.
Right, that's included in the Northeast and midwest. I didn't just mean the NEC - I meant the Northeast US as a whole.
