Now through April 16 for travel between May 19 to June 11, 2015, Amtrak is running a sale with routes starting as low as $20 each way in the Northeast.

With this offer, you can travel to/from NYC to New Haven; Providence; Boston; Baltimore; and Washington, DC, making this a great deal if you’re looking for a quick away and don’t want to hassle jumping on a plane.

Amtrak is currently offering a 3-day sale on several of their routes.

Taking a look at a sample date in May, I was able to find availability between Boston and New York for $37, for a one-way trip, making this not a bad option if you’re looking to hop around the Northeast the next few months.

Head from Boston to New York for $37 one-way on the Amtrak.

If you’re looking to transfer points to Amtrak, the Guest Rewards program itself has several partners that allow you to accrue Guest Rewards points, and is a 1:1 transfer partner of Chase Ultimate Rewards, so you can transfer points from cards like the Chase Sapphire Preferred and Ink Plus into your Guest Rewards account. You can also transfer in points at a 1:1 ratio from Starwood Preferred Guest as well.
