here's my question though. sprint offered something like this before as a promotion and i mailed in the voucher to get my companion airfare coupon. long story short it turned out the prices of the first ticket they would offer you would be twice the price of the same ticket if you bought it by yourself. I don't know if amex does that with this program?"Invite a travel companion to accompany you on your next flight. Receive complimentary companion airfare, up to four times each year, when you use your Platinum Card to book qualifying domestic Coach-Class air travel - starting at $299 - aboard one of six major U.S. carrier."
if they do this there's no point in having a "free" second ticket if you have to pay twice as much for your first ticket. who has the card that has used this and would know for sure?
