    Only for Roomette travel. Not for other rooms.

    And to AGR Mastercard holders when the account is opened and annually on the account anniversary.

    If anyone has an extra lounge pass, I'd be happy to trade them a 12 hour upgrade coupon (expires 11/28/19). Thanks in advance.

    Hi all! I'm taking a trip next weekend and could use a lounge pass and possibly a companion coupon. I'm also trying to plan a trip for later this summer and could use a companion coupon for that as well. I have a 12-hour upgrade coupon to trade if someone is interested.

    MODERATOR NOTE: there were numerous threads regarding upgrade, companion and lounge coupons with posts by members who have coupons available, who are seeking coupons and who have questions. We have merged most of the threads into this one, which was re-titled and pinned. Please note we "locked" some of the older threads (within the last year) where questions were asked and answered and/or all the coupons have expired. Very old threads were ignored. Please post any new requests, etc. in this thread.
    Thanks.

    I was pleasantly surprised by a change in the Amtrak app that allows you to apply upgrade coupons to your reservation without having to sit on the phone for a long time or stand in line at a ticket counter. the whole transaction was completed with two extra clicks.

    Bravo to Amtrak for this improvement to the customer experience.

    AGR members have been able to redeem coupons through the website and app for some time now. Glad to see you were able to find it!

    Coupons appear to have a unique code. I assume, since this thread exists, that there is no problem with one person using another person's coupon with its unique code. If either of my assumptions are off base, please correct them. If the first assumption (unique code) is correct, would someone please discuss what it means to AGR if a coupon is used by someone to whom it was not issued and what PII (Personally Identifiable Information) concerns might exist? Thank you.

    Pretty much spot on. AGR allows coupons to be given to friends and or family members, but they can NOT be sold. Selling them is a terms and conditions violation that can lead to your account being closed.

    Hey guys, if anyone has a spare lounge pass, I'm happy to PayPal or Venmo over a few dollars to cover shipping to me. Just in case you've got an extra pass you're not using. Thanks.

    I got the Amtrak World Mastercard and they sent me a free lounge pass. Excuse my ignorance, but is it valid for everyone on my reservation or only for me?

    Does the pass state for whom it is valid (possibly in small print)?

    I could be wrong, but I believe it is a one time use at one station for only one person. You can give it to anyone, but it still is only for that one person alone.

    Thank you for your help! Just read the fine print and it says "bearer and one guest".

    Hi all, I'm traveling next month on the NE Regional, if anyone has a spare upgrade coupon, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

    I also have two companion coupons available for anyone that might have a need for one.

    Hello, I am new here but have taken quite a few trips on several (different) Amtrak trains since 2012 (immigrant).

    Now a client has booked me on the Acela in Business Class, and I read that I won't get access to the lounges unless I upgrade to First. I looked into my reservation under "modify trip" but have not found any option to upgrade my trip. It is registered with my membership number but since I have not booked it myself, it seems it doesn't qualify for an upgrade.

    Would a coupon help me?
    Does anyone have a spare one?

    My trip is on Oct 8 from NYP to WAS.

    Or am I missing something? Why don't they offer me an easy way to upgrade, like every airline does?

    Guest Rewards coupons can only be applied within 48 hours of departure or 12 hours of departure depending on the coupon. Since your trip is October 8th you are well outside of those requirements. You also need a coupon. If you want to upgrade the trip now without a coupon you are more then welcome to call Amtrak to do so.

    I'd be interested in a companion coupon if it is still available. For a trip in October. Thanks!

    You have to click on the ID of the person you want to send the message to. A box will then appear and one of the options will be "start a conversation." Click on that and it will allow you to send a private message.

    Thank you; I ended up sending the message correctly after all.
