    One of the nice perks of the former US Airways MasterCard was an annual companion certificate, whereby you could have up to two companions fly with you for $99 each, plus taxes and fees. This credit card is no longer being issued (only Citi is allowed to issue credit cards for the "new American"), and as of the second quarter of this year the US Airways MasterCard has been converted into the AAdvantage Aviator Card. That being said, a lot of people who had the US Airways MasterCard still have companion certificates, which on paper are valid for bookings made through September 30, 2015, and for travel through December 31, 2015. The good news is that because US Airways officially ceases to exist on October 17, 2015 (due to the integration of the two airlines' reservations systems on that date), you can actually use this certificate for travel on American flights as well. Anyway, under the published rules, these certificates would expire in a few hours, though as it turns out the expiration date of US Airways companion certificates has been extended through Monday, October 5, 2015. That's the book by date, and as before, the certificates are valid for travel through December 31, 2015.
