Amtrak fare specials and monthly passes

Amtrak fare increases went into effect Oct 16. The $633 Philadelphia to New York Penn Station monthly rate is now gone. I believe the monthly pass fare between the cities is now around $820 and will go to $1,008 in mid February or so. I'm reviewing options for the commute ongoing, no grand plan yet, though I did buy a few monthly passes in advance at the $633 rate to tide me over through March. That's a lot of upfront money, I had to get one of those 0% credit cards, it may be cheaper to move to Manhattan.
