Our Verdict

We just saw a BOGO sale for Mother’s day, so surprised to see another one so quickly. These don’t work on saver fares, so might be better to wait for the 30% off sale.

Book May 15-June 5, you just have book by May 15 which already passed.


Must purchase by June 15. Started May15.


Meant 6/5


This is valid only for Northeast Regional service between Washington, DC and Boston, MA.

Maybe this should be part of the subject line.


Also, only available for Saturday travel. This is more like a regional bank bonus. Lots of caveats that would have been helpful in the heading or early in the post.
