October was a busy month of travel, starting off with an unexpected trip. Here’s a recap of how it all went down:
|Date||Item||Points Used (Cash Saved)||Cash Used|
|10/3||1x Concord Coach ticket, CON-BOS||—||$15.00|
|10/3||1x Amtrak ticket, BOS-NYP||—||$100.00|
|10/10||2x Amtrak tickets, UCA-NYP||4,129 Amtrak points ($113.40)||—|
|10/21||2x Amtrak tickets, NYP-BAL||—||$98.00|
|10/21-10/23||2 nights – Hotel Indigo Baltimore||30,000 ($201.16)||$198.00|
|10/23||2x Amtrak tickets, BAL-NYP||—||$142.20|
In sum, we used 34,129 points to save $314.56 and spend $552.20 on 5 train tickets, 1 bus ticket, and 2 nights in a hotel. Average price per train ticket? $68.04.
The last minute trip in the beginning of the month definitely drove up the price, as the NYP-BOS-NYP trip can usually be done for under $100. Now on to November! We have only one trip planned (Orlando!!), but things can always change! Happy travels!
