If you’re still searching for a Mother’s Day gift, how about a spring or summer train ride for the pair of you? Amtrak is offering trips for two for as little as $29 through a flash sale that kicked off Thursday and runs through Monday.
During Amtrak’s “Unconditional Love” sale, travelers can buy one adult ticket and get another adult ticket free. The one-way coach class tickets are good for travel between June 1 and Sept. 30, with no blackout dates.
Travelers will pay $29 for two tickets from Boston to Portland, Maine, and $83 for two tickets from Boston to New York City (or $125 for the Acela Express). The deals also stretch beyond New England, on Amtrak’s national network of 500 destinations in 46 states. Purchasers must use the discount code C250 when buying their tickets.
