I just bought off of EBAY an Amtrak free companion ticket. I am so excited! It does have a few blackout dates, but other than that it is good through 2/2010. If you go to ebay, just search amtrak and it should pop up. We paid $8 for each coupon. You only need one coupon per companion for either roundtrip or one way. So we are going from Raleigh, NC to Orlando and saving a total of $160.00 on four adults. I actually called and verified with Amtrak that these would work for our dates and location of travel. The seller only had 3 left. Check it out! Hopefully, someone else can benefit!
