Question, is all your travel going to be alone?  Reason I ask is i opted up to the platinum sky miles card, AF is 150 but you get a free companion ticket each year.  All of my personal travel is with my fiance so It saves me at least one ticket a year and more than pays for the AF

One this summer will be with my girlfriend (hopefully fiance by then).  If I get the card, I'll have enough skymiles to fly us both to my friend's wedding.  We'll most likely get married next summer, which will mean an expensive flight for a honeymoon.


How easy is the companion ticket to redeem?  What kind of value do you typically get out of it?

What's in my wallet:

Left to right:
NPSL ($10k approved)
$5k (EMV - Chip & PIN)
$7k (Visa Sig + EMV)
$7.5k (WEMC)

Transunion FICO: 709 (8/13/12) -> 740 (9/24/12)
Credit Karma: 772 (11/24/13)
Credit Sesame: 755 (11/5/13)
