AMEX Delta Companion Ticket ?

 

Are there any AMEX or Delta CCs that still offer a mostly~free ( like $99, or $199 ) companion ticket ?   I thought that the Delta Reserve did, but after looking on AMEX's website I don't see any cards with this as a benefit....

Here's a blog post about getting the certificate.  Maybe you have to have the card to do all this, or maybe the eliminated it? http://boardingarea.com/blogs/deltapoints/2012/01/16/dont-forget-to-use-your-free-delta-air-lines-am...

 

According to this flyertalk thread, looks like still valid but something that Amex is not marketing as a benefit.

As far as I know they all still offer it.

 

I was on the delta site a week ago planning my honeymoon and they offered me the delta card, and listed that as a benefit.

Re: AMEX Delta Companion Ticket ?

 

Thanks everyone for the replies !!

 

I assumed that it had gone away just because there is no mention of it anywhere on AMEX's website.   I guess it must be a Delta benefit, but you would think they would promote it.

 

Does anyone know if the companion certificate is awarded when you first get the card ??  Or is it only after the first year ?

I don't know about platinum or reserve, but you don't get one for the gold until after the first year
