As many are aware, AAA members get a standard 10% off most Amtrak fares so long as they purchase 3 days in advance. Now through May 15, however, customers can get 10% off the already discounted AAA fares, which is actually a pretty good deal in most cases. Travel is only valid until June 12, however, so don’t plan on taking advantage of this during the busy summer season.
Here are the terms and conditions:
Valid for 10% off the best available adult AAA discounted rail fare. Up to 2 children ages 2 – 12 may accompany each adult at half fare. Valid for sale April 1 – May 15, 2016.

Valid for Coach seats only; no upgrades permitted. Offer is valid for AAA members; upon request passengers must present a valid AAA membership card. Offer requires all passengers to meet the standard AAA partnership terms and conditions in conjunction with this discount. Once travel has begun, no changes to the itinerary are permitted.
